At Newfield School we teach mathematics to all children, whatever their ability. Mathematics forms part of the school curriculum policy to provide a broad and balanced education to all children. Through our mathematics teaching we provide learning opportunities that enable all pupils to make progress. We do this by setting suitable learning challenges and responding to each child’s different needs. Assessment against the National Curriculum allows us to consider each child’s attainment and progress against expected levels. When progress fall significantly outside the expected range then interventions will be put in place. We assess children’s work in mathematics from three aspects (long term, short-term and medium-term). We make short-term assessments which we use to help us adjust our daily plans. These short-term assessments are closely matched to the teaching objectives.
We make medium-term assessments to measure progress against the key objectives, and to help us plan the next unit of work.
We make long-term assessments towards the end of the school year and we use these to assess progress against school and national targets. We can then set targets for the next school year and make a summary of each child’s progress before discussing it with parents.
