Hunsley Primary formally reports three times a year to parents and carers, so that you will always have a timely update on your child’s progress, attendance and achievement of the Hunsley Primary Characteristics of Learning (please see our Hunsley Primary Assessment, Marking and Feedback Policy).
The Hunsley Primary Characteristics of Learning help children to develop as learners, making a valuable contribution to the team, the school and the learning of others. Based on the Characteristics of Effective Learning, the school has created a set of skills, qualities and abilities which we believe all learners should possess, no matter their age, in order to achieve their full potential.
At whole school level, we use a secure online system called SIMS, a national assessment and reporting tool, which enables progress to be tracked and evidence of children’s development and learning to be collated. In addition to SIMS, we use the online portal Tapestry to enable the EYFS profile to be compiled, so we are capturing every stage of each pupil’s development from Reception to Year 6.
At the end of the Reception year, parents and carers will receive a copy of their child’s Early Years Profile Scores. At the end of Year 1, parents and carers will be notified of their child’s achievements in the Phonics Screening Check. At the end of Key Stage 1 and 2, parents will be notified of their child’s achievement in national testing.
