Our Approach

Our Methods

The Criteria

Each child is assessed as either;  working towards expectations, meeting the expected outcomes or achieving greater depth against key objectives, depending on the depth of their learning.
• Assessment judgements are recorded and backed by a body of evidence created using observations, records of work, teacher assessment and summative tests.
• Assessment judgements are moderated by colleagues in school and by colleagues in other schools to make sure our assessments are fair, reliable and valid.

Use of Assessment

Assessment outcomes are used to summarise and analyse attainment and progress for pupils and classes.
• Data is used to plan the learning for every pupil to ensure they meet or exceed expectations.

• Data is analysed across the school to ensure that all pupils at Five Elms are making appropriate progress and that all pupils are suitably stretched.


We celebrate all achievements across a broad and balanced curriculum, including sport, art and performance, behaviour, and social and emotional development.


Informing Parents

The information from assessment is communicated to parents and pupils at parents' consultation evenings and in annual reports.
Parents and pupils receive information about what has been achieved and indications of what they need to do next. Parents are welcome to make an appointment to discuss their child's progress and assessment outcomes at any time.
