As part of our assessment routine we have recently introduced the Rising Stars material which helps teachers to track pupil progress throughout each topic.
In addition to meeting the statutory requirements we aim to reinforce our children’s learning through the use of Enrichment Lessons. These lessons aim to give the children the investigative opportunities to plug any gaps in learning, too.
