Accurate and robust assessment is crucial to support learning. Assessment information provides teachers, students, managers and parents with a summary of the knowledge, understanding and skills a student has as well as an indication of how to develop these to improve further (formative assessment). It allows all parties to check that appropriate progress is being made, that students are working in line with expectations and to highlight the need for intervention and additional support if this is not the case. At Lealands, assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning. Our aim is for students to know precisely how well they are doing and what the next steps for improvement are. Regular teacher assessment and testing support this process.
