During 2020/2021 statutory assessments in primary schools were suspended. Inspire Multi Academy Trust Schools have continued to carefully assess the progress of pupils over this time at appropriate points. We have used this information to identify any gaps in learning and to make adjustments to teaching in order to close those gaps so that our children get back on track quickly on their return to school.
As a school we use Target Tracker as a planning and assessment tool. Each year group has an allocated band. Year 1 = Band 1, Year 2 = Band 2 and so on. Early Years (Nursery and Reception) are assessed in months. Target Tracker allows all children, of all abilities to be tracked. Assessments take place termly to validate teacher’s assessments. For each half term to maintain good progress children are expected to make 1 step progress.
