Our learners are assessed in many different ways, to ensure that we have a clear understanding of their levels of achievement and the progress they have made throughout the year. We consistently use data from assessments to plan lessons which meet the needs of our learners.
At the beginning of the academic year, our Year 3 to Year 6 students undertake Cognitive Ability Tests (CAT4) which provide us with rich data that allows us to identify what type of learner each child is and what style of teaching would allow them to develop fully. This form of assessment also gives us crucial information, that we revisit many times over the course of the academic year to determine how much progress each child has made.
Throughout the academic year, teachers regularly assess children’s progress in each lesson, through the use of our online tracking tool Classroom Monitor™. This program allows us to identify children’s levels of achievement, not only in formal assessments but on a day to day basis.
Our students also complete summative assessments in all core subjects of English, mathematics, science and Arabic at the end of each term. This information will be reported to parents twice a year, in a report. Following these reports, parents and students will have the opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss their child’s attainment, progress and attitudes to learning.
