Literacy

Teachers follow The Power of Reading as a scheme and adhere to the two-year rolling programme of selected books from the current and previous recommended CLPE (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education) texts. The Programmes of study provide a basic outline for teachers to build upon. The two-year rolling programme is divided by years 1 and 2, years 3 and 4, years 4 and 5 and years 5 and 6 standards as combined in the new curriculum. The standards being taught by each group will be determined by the cohort and their needs and abilities each term (as highlighted in initial assessments).Teachers follow The Power of Reading as a scheme and adhere to the two-year rolling programme of selected books from the current and previous recommended CLPE (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education) texts.

White Rose Maths is being used across the school from EYFS trough to year 6, with mixed year group pathways also available. Throughout the term, there are block assessment tests available to ensure secure understanding, as well as complete end of term assessments.  The standards being taught by each group will be determined by the cohort and their needs and abilities each term (as highlighted in initial assessments). Maths Whole School Rolling Programme.docx

The rolling programme combines years 1 and 2, years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6.  The standards being taught by each group will be determined by the cohort and their needs and abilities each term (as highlighted in initial assessments). Science Whole School Rolling Programme.docx

Computing

A scheme of work is being followed which was produced by Knowsley City Learning Centres. Children will follow a two-year rolling programme with year groups being combined as years 1 and 2, years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6. All programmes of study begin with an E-safety unit.

Baseline Assessments

Upon entry, all students will complete a series of baseline assessments across a 6-week period.

Reading is assessed using a YORK early or primary reading assessment.  Following this, children working below year 3 standards (Gold level) will also be assessed using Phonics Tracker.  Children working above a reading age of 12.5yrs will also be assessed using NGRT.   

An Assertive Mentoring maths assessment will also be used to identify a baseline and gaps in learning.

Writing baselines are moderated based on a sample of independent writing tasks produced across the 6-week period. 

Assessment Cycles

Teachers update Pupil Asset Standards at least once a week for reading, writing, maths and science. Alongside this, an assessment timetable has been established using White Rose Maths end of block and end of term assessments.  

In literacy, Rising Stars half-termly assessments are being used for reading, and independent writing takes place on a weekly basis in a separate book from all other Literacy and this book provides an assessment sample of writing across a range of genres.  Apart from independent writing, all other pupils’ assessments are stored in their individual purple assessment file with any other additional diagnostic assessments being stored on the staff shared drive. 

Children in key stage 1 are assessed using Tapestry and this is updated almost daily, following an EYFS observation assessment model.
