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
– Lindon Bennett Levels KS2 (SOLAR) (From Sept. 2018)
– Lindon Bennett Early Years Steps (SOLAR) (From Sept. 2018)
– EYFS Development Matters (Early Years Foundation Stage)
– Routes for Learning (Welsh Assembly)
– PLAY approach
– Age Related Expectations
– Pupil Progress Meetings

Performance data for pupils within Nursery, Reception and year 1 is based on the Early Years Framework. Performance data for pupils in Year 2 to Year 6 will be based on assessment linked to Lindon Bennett Levels form September 2018.

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


Data analysis for the academic year 2019-2020 did not take place due to the Global COVID-19 Pandemic.
