Principles of Assessment

At Townfield, we have five principles of assessment. 

We believe that:

  • Assessment puts the child at the centre of their learning;
  • Assessment is honest, fair, consistent and compares results to both local and national standards;
  • Daily assessment is at the heart of outstanding teaching, which leads to outstanding learning, which leads to outstanding progress;
  • Assessment provides feedback which recognises effort and suggests next steps towards deep and meaningful learning;
  • Assessment is focused on outcomes for children whithin and beyond the school day in partnership with parents and carers.
