Assessment Test

Assessment tests are conducted by members of our Team and give us an opportunity to see each child’s basic skills and knowledge, their learning behaviours as well as their ability to interact with our team. This is important as we want to ensure that our curriculum can meet each individual child’s needs.

Foundation Stage: Children are invited to a stay and play session where staff will assess the child’s readiness for school.

Year 1- Year 2: Children complete a basic assessment looking at knowledge of phonics, letters, numbers, shapes along with their writing.

Year 3: a written English and Mathematics test

Year 4 upwards: Cognitive Ability Test (CAT) 

Our Team are trained in student development and are aware that each child is different and unique with varying abilities.
