The SSC staff use formative assessment everyday to ensure that your child’s needs are being met. This is carried out by talking to them, observing them and marking their work. This form of assessment allows us to move your children on as quickly as possible and deal with any misconceptions that may have occurred.
We carry out a variety of summative assessment each term to monitor your child progress.
