Underpinning principles for assessment at Morley Primary

 

At Morley Primary, we believe that assessment should be fit for purpose. Below are our guiding principles, which have been developed following the NAHT’s report of the Commission on Assessment, and adapted to ensure that our pupils’ needs are met. Further details can be found in our school Planning and Assessment Policy, located here:

  1. Assessment is at the heart of teaching and learning – it guides learning and enables progress to be identified
  2. Assessment is for all pupils and meets all needs
  3. Assessment is open, transparent and regularly moderated both within school, and by external professionals

  4. Assessment is ambitious and sets high expectations for all – we believe that all children can achieve

  5. Assessment draws on a wide range of evidence to provide a complete picture of achievement

  6. Assessment is consistent and recorded in ways which are easily managed and recorded

  7. Assessment outcomes provide meaningful and understandable information

  8. Assessment feedback should inspire greater effort and a belief that, through hard work and practice, more can be achieved

 

 

Attainment

We are delighted that we have received a letter from the DfE congratulating the school on its performance in the 2016 KS2 assessments. This is particularly pleasing as the assessments were conducted under the new, harder, framework. This is the third such letter in the last 5 years. Well done to all pupils, parents and staff.

Please find below relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables. 

 

Please note that, due to our small cohort sizes, one pupil may equate to as much as 12.5%

Group results

 

Attainment results for pupils with SEND, or in receipt of Pupil Premium funding are available to parents individually. Due to cohort size, the numbers of these pupils are few, and to publish results would risk identification of individual children.

Although we recognise that our attainment and progress in reading is not as it has been historically, it is not appropriate to compare previous years' data as pupils have been assessed in a new way, and against a new curriculum this year, and the tests were far harder.

 

However, we have addressed this in school and have made many developments in reading including:

 

Restructuring the library into a proper lending library with children acting as librarians

Investing in a wide variety of reading material for the library

All classes basing learning on a class text for some weeks each term, for example Class 3 have so far studied 'Wonder', 'Street Child' and 'Varjak Paw'.

All adults in school hearing children read every day

All children in school reading to adults

Planning is in place for a parent workshop in reading

Reading question cards for developing understanding in texts

A reading challenge in KS2

Staff sharing favourite books with children

Developing an outside reading area

Ensuring that children are discussing their understanding of the text and not simply reading words

Taking part in a whole school Readathon (proceeds to go to support a charity which enables reading with children in hospital)

Appointing a Reading Champion to encourage reading with younger pupils

Older pupils writing books for younger children

Individual pupils identified for daily reading at school to boost their reading practice

 

We anticipate that end of year results this year will be significantly improved.

Morley Readathon

 

Our Readathon total stands at £591.58, of which £118.31 (20%) will be used to add new books to our library. The remaining 80% will go to the hospital charity to support visitors reading books to children who are undergoing longer term treatment away from home.

 

The Readathon has been a huge success with pupils throughout school reading a fantastic number of books over the 4 weeks. Staff report that children are reading more widely and deeply, are able to discuss reasons for their choices, and are trying other books by new authors. Favourite books have included:

 

The Claude series (mentioned by many children)

Captain Underpants

The Spy Dog books (author Andy Cope is from Derby)

Tracey Beaker

Room on the Broom

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

The Midnight Gang

The Kitten Nobody Wanted

The Gruffalo

Gangster Granny

Mallory Towers

Dr Seuss

Harry Potter

Jacqueline Wilson books

Letter to Pluto

A Heroes' Guide to Deadly Dragons

Black Beauty

Patrick Ness books

Boy in a Dress

 

The children said:

 

'I really like the Tom Gates books and Captain Underpants because they are funny and they make me laugh.'

'It feels really good to do this for charity.'

'Claude goes on some really good adventures.'

'Doing the Readathon has improved my reading. I'm reading more difficult words.'

'I'm making a book at home.'

'Spy Dog is a bit like the Gunpowder Plot.'

'I read all the book now - I don't miss out the bits I don't like!'

'Claude books make me feel like I'm in the book.'

'Normally I read 5 pages in a book, but now I read 10 or more.'

'I raised as much money as I could because I feel sorry for children who are poorly. I would definitely recommend these books.'

'I give this book 3 stars.'

'I like the theme of Diary of a Wimpy Kid because I like how it's a diary.'

'I liked The Ship of Adventure' because it is funny! The reason it is funny is because of a parrot called Kiki. Kiki says 'Polly put the kettle on, send for the kettle, pop goes Bill.'

'I liked Letter to Pluto because I learned some new things.'

'My favourite book in the Readathon was AniMaloom because it's not one of the boring ones: it's really funny. It gives you an amazing imagination.'

'It helped me with my word pronunciation, and I've learned some words that I didn't know and now I know what they mean.'

'My favourite book was Dork Diaries Frenemies Forever, and I like it because it has lots of drama in it.'

'I love Black Beauty. It's so kind. Readathon has made me read so much more.'

'The Readathon has encouraged me to read more and more.'

'I loved The Rest of us Just Live Here - it really made me think more deeply.'

'I got to read more books with a real excuse to do so!'

'This book is funny, imaginative, and unexpectedly odd.'
