How we assess
In EYFS we use the National Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This can be found here
In Nursery and Reception classes we use an online learning journey ststem to track progress of our children. This is called EARWIG http://earwigacademic.com/
From 2017-18 parents in these year groups have access to their child's journal via a log in that they will be personally given.
It is imperative that all EYFS parents keep the office staff up to date with their email addresses so that this system can be used to it's full advantage.
Our on-going formative assessments are based around the EYFS curriculum. This is the document that HVI academy follow to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum is taught.
Key Stage 1
Assessment without National Curriculum Levels at Hill View Infant School
Assessment System for the New National Curriculum 2014
With a New National Curriculum and the removal of 'levels' to track a child’s progress, schools are expected to design their own system to track progress. At Hill View Infant School we have a new system for assessing pupil progress and attainment in the new national curriculum.
The system is based around the statutory requirements for each year group as laid out in the programmes of study in the new national curriculum. Instead of assessing against NC levels the system allows assessment of statutory requirements / objectives in reference to particular programmes of study.
This below booklet is aimed at providing the necessary information to parents so that you feel fully aware of your own child’s progress and attainment at our school.
