Assessment is at the heart of teaching and learning
At Cherry Tree Hill Primary School, assessment is an essential part of how we help children achieve their potential. It is a continuous process and an integral part of the teaching and learning that takes place in our school.
Through daily, formative assessments we are constantly evaluating children’s knowledge, skills and understanding and, along with summative assessments, are able to evaluate children’s current strengths and the next steps in their learning.
Children at Cherry Tree Hill are actively involved in the assessment process as we believe they become better learners when they have time to reflect on their success in lessons and are aware of the next steps in their learning journey. Assessment outcomes are regularly shared with parents as this provides meaningful and understandable information which enables them to support their children with learning.
