Formative assessment is ongoing throughout each lesson. It judges progress and enables the teacher to make flexible adaptations to their planning and improve individual's learning.
Effective formative assessment, marking and feedback and adult interaction within lessons is firmly embedded into our approach when teaching maths. All pupils are supported to develop, progress and move their learning forward through support, questioning and feedback. Pupils demonstrate the impact this has on improving their learning through editing and written responses.
The use of clear learning objectives and success criteria enables pupils to understand their learning and become self-regulated learners who aspire to reach to their full potential. The use of Achieve, Challenge and Aspire success criteria allows children to self assess their learning independently during lessons. Both pupils and teachers refer to this success criteria throughout lessons when they are assessing the progress they have made.
Maths is assessed by teachers who use the HCAT trackers to allocate a level and next steps for each pupil. Moderation occurs within school to ensure moderation is carried out correctly and teachers also participate in Cross Trust and Local Authority moderation.
