Lindon Bennett School

Assessment, monitoring and progress

At Lindon Bennett School assessment and moderation are an integral part of the teaching and learning process, it enables us to ensure all aspects of pupil progress is monitored over time and future planning is supported and informed by appropriate assessment, ensuring teaching and learning is suitably differentiated.

All teachers assess pupil’s individual progress towards meeting their agreed Personalised Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and Annual Targets using a number of assessments and reporting tools including:

– Daily observation and identified next steps
– Connecting Steps (B Squared)
– CASPA (Comparison & Analysis of Special Pupil Data)
– EYFS Development Matters (Early Years Foundation Stage)
– Routes for Learning (Welsh Assembly)
– REACh (Relationship Education for the Autistic Child)
– Age Related Expectations
– Pupil Progress Meetings

Performance data is based on Development Matters for our EYFS pupils and P levels for our KS2 pupils. For a small number of our cohort it is appropriate for us to reference their progress against National Primary Curriculum Age Related Expectations.

Pupil progress meetings take place to ensure teacher judgment is challenged. Our judgements are moderated internally and externally both with schools in borough and across borough.

Our primary source of data analysis for P levels, is against national progression guidance, taking into account starting ages and levels. Progress over the past year shows:
