At Newnham Croft assessment is seen in many forms, from teacher judgements, marking, peer assessments, pupils own self-assessment, and testing of different types. We more formally assess all the pupils at the end of each term in Reading, Writing and Maths using test materials which are appropriate and standardised for each year group. These assessments support our ongoing classroom assessments and help shape the future work for the children and the use of any interventions needed to support learning.
