As the academic year progresses, we assess the children in the following ways:
■ Observing them working in their ability groups
■ Asking them questions or giving them complex problems or tasks to solve
■ Looking at their completed work
■ Regular online assessments using various assessment tools.
Monitoring the child’s Progress
At regular intervals throughout the academic year, Facilitators are asked to review each student. This is where patterns and trends are identified. Facilitators then create individual support plans to ensure each student makes optimal progress.
The learning outcome of each student is shared with their parents four times a year . Thrice with PFSC – Parent Facilitator Student Conference and once with a Student Led Conference where the student demonstrates its own learning graph and leads the conference, taking ownership of it the whole process.
