Curriculum & Assessment

Yatton Schools have a dedicated, experienced and well-qualified team of teachers and support staff whose expertise has enabled us to respond positively to recent changes in education.

As schools,  we follow the National Curriculum subject orders.  For each of these,  there are programmes of study,  which set out the the matters,  skills and processes to be covered by each pupil.

Assessment

Yatton Schools believe that effective assessment can drive improvements in learning for all learners. In the schools we use a mixture of both summative and formative assessment to help us to support and challenge learners.

Our assessments:

  • Give reliable information to parents about how their child, and their child’s school, is performing
  • Help drive improvement for pupils and teachers
  • Make sure the school is keeping up with external best practice and innovation

 

The most important assessment of learning for our learners is in the feedback we give. Both schools have a comprehensive Marking and Feedback policy that encourages response from our learners.

Yatton Schools engage with other schools within the Lighthouse Schools Partnership in moderation sessions on assessment from the EYFS up to Year 6, working with colleagues  to ensure consistency and sound judgements. In house writing moderation also happens regularly.
