How We Check Pupil Progress
Class teachers have a clear view of where all pupils are in their reading progress. In addition, all staff have high expectations for the progress that their pupils will make throughout the academic year.
Teachers closely monitor reading progress during each term, so they can support any pupil falling behind age-related expectations.
Pupils in Years 3, 4 and 5 take termly standardised tests (PIRA) and Year 6 pupils are assessed by using past SAT papers.
Teacher check pupils’ progress following daily reading lessons and provide extra support where needed. Some pupils receive short ‘catch-up’ intervention during the afternoons.
