Assessment

At South View School, we believe that assessment is an essential part of teaching and learning.

The main benefits of assessment enable each teacher to find out what pupils know, understand and can do and then plan appropriate progression throughout all curriculum areas, tailored to the learning needs and abilities of the specific child. All students will be assessed at the beginning of the academic year to ensure that our teachers are providing them with a tailor-made education to suit their individual learning needs. We will regularly assess our students in numerous ways and use this data to monitor progress and inform curriculum development and lesson planning.

All students will be set individuals targets and their attainment and progress will be tracked at regular intervals throughout the school year. We will provide regular feedback to parents. Our through-school models ensures seamless transition between year groups and Key Stages. South View School are committed to ensuring that the ‘whole child’ progresses, we do not focus solely on the academics.
