Assessment for Learning plays a vital role in ensuring that every pupil makes excellent progress. We encourage pupils to take responsibility for their own learning, to be involved as far as possible in reviewing the way they learn, and to reflect on how they learn – what helps them learn and what makes it difficult for them to learn.

We ensure that every child knows where they currently are in their learning and what they need to do in order to improve.

Assessment also takes other forms at The Old School Henstead: from informal classroom discussions and the marking of pupils’ work to the data provided by thorough standardised assessments.

The nurturing environment of our school allows them to flourish, thrive and be more than ready for the future which awaits them.
