Assessment at Gibside School

The majority of our cohort of children are working below the national Age Related Expectations.

We use an assessment framework that demonstrates and celebrates every step of progress our children make. By putting the child at the centre of our assessment framework we acknowledge that every child is an individual and can make progress in every part of their life.

The range of needs and abilities of our children means that a ‘standard assessment scale’ with limited linier developmental pathways is ineffective when measuring an individual’s progress which is why we employ a ‘Child Centred Assessment’ framework. We do not assess children using ‘levels’ or a ‘best fit’ model – as each child learns in an individual way, we assess their progress in an individual way.

Our model allows us to shape and change a childs’ targets and enable him or her to demonstrate their own attainment and progress. The model is also inclusive, bringing together different systems and process under one model throughout a child’s schooling career.
“An inclusive system accommodating as many pupils as possible allows for progression within it and provides continuity across different educational settings. It also facilitates the development of shared good practice”
The Rochford Review 2016

 

Target Setting at Gibside School

Everyone involved with each child will work together to set functional, relevant targets – including Parents, Teachers and Multi-Disciplinary Staff. We set targets in 9 areas of development, drawn from a wide range of frameworks to enable each child to be the best they can be and prepare them for life as they grow.

Targets are continuously worked towards and frequently updated to challenge each pupil to achieve the best they can. We run moderation sessions every half term with whole school staff to ensure challenge, support and appropriate development for every child as well as a rigorous rolling monitoring process.

Focused interventions are implemented and evaluated for pupils who need additional support to achieve their individualised, age related targets.

Pupils who are working within national curriculum levels may be entered for SAT’s tests along with their mainstream peers.
