Inspiring young minds, creating learners for life



What is assessment?

At Stalyhill Infant school, assessment is a continuous process which involves the seeking and interpreting of evidence and information for use by learners and their teachers, to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go next and which is the best way to get there. We believe that assessment should not only be for and of  learning but should also be seen as learning.


An integral part of the National Curriculum statutory procedures; our Assessment policy outlines the purpose and management of assessment information in our school.


Assessment is not separate from, but an integral part of the curriculum plan and its strategies for teaching and learning. 


Recording achievement recognises not only the skill and knowledge in written form but also practical skills, social attitudes and personal qualities that represent the wider aims of education.
