Assessment - Procedures
Woodlane uses a number of different procedures to ensure quality robust assessment of pupils at Woodlane. A parent information session was run in December 2022 to outline how these operate and provide current information in an accessible format. This sessions was recorded and can be reviewed below.
Progression Steps (PS) are operated through BSquared – Connecting Steps. Each criteria outlined within Progression Steps is closely aligned to the current national curriculum and appropriate to use with the range of pupils abilities at Woodlane, including our MMH pathway. There are 10 PS, covering P4 - up to old NC 7. The breadth of criteria should ensure that all pupils can achieve within a PS, with appropriately challenging areas for progression.
Each each pupil will have criteria ‘ticked’ within the online Connecting Steps platform to highlight what skills/knowledge they have gained over the course of a term. Staff are encouraged to update Connecting Steps as regularly as they feel is necessary, however the formal data entry point (deadline) is the penultimate week of each term.
Please see the school’s Flight Path for a demonstration on how the expected progress and attainment of pupils sits within the school's assessment systems.
At the bottom of this page you will also find a range of documents used within assessment at Woodlane. These include;
- A summary of the Assessment, Marking, Moderation and Reporting Policy (AMMR).
- Our Flight Path, used to track the progress of pupils and determine expected outcomes from different starting points.
- Changes to Assessment Practices, which explains these changes in greater detail.
