Information on Assessment
As part of our assessment programme we use several sets of student data to monitor children's progress and inform our teaching. Two of the tools we use are the CAT4 Test and the Progress Test Series from GL Assessment to give us an acute understanding of a student’s potential.

This data is considered alongside any other assessments made throughout the year, formal or informal, to inform our teaching. As part of this process we also do a comparison of student CAT4, PT Series and NGRT results with their eventual grade at KS2. Therefore we authorise on your behalf for our KS2 results to be supplied to GL Assessment who then deliver back to us a comparative analysis.

This gives us a very useful report as part of an ongoing assessment programme at Blackminster. As we take the safeguarding of our student data very seriously, I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know how your child’s assessment data is used to continually improve the teaching and learning process at the school.

Please feel free to contact Ms McQuone should you have any questions or concerns.
