With such a diverse range of learners and our fundamental promise to provide the best possible education for each and every child at our school, our approach to assessment, in light of National changes the past few years has been one of flexibility, innovation and constant self evaluation of our systems.
At Parayhouse School we believe that assessment should reflect the skills and progress a learner has made across a period of time. For the past 2 years, our aim was to develop an assessment system that focused on acquiring a broad range of skills, challenging outcomes and individual achievement. We have the highest aspirations for our learners, which we believe is reflected in our ongoing practice and approach to assessment. This includes constant moderation between class groups, systematic reviews of assessment procedures and results and continual research and investigation into not just what other schools are doing but what has been prescribed Nationally, such as the recent Rochford Review.
