Academic Achievement

At Wren Academy we are continually assessing our pupils.  We use a mixture of informal observations and assessment for learning opportunities in lessons.  We keep a detailed track of our pupils’ progress and attainment using Tapestry.

There are also National assessments that have to be made at key times during the primary school phase.

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile      

During the Reception year, children are continually assessed and at the end of Reception a judgement is made as to whether they have achieved a good level of development.

Across the areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design, children are awarded levels as to whether or not they have met, exceeded or are emerging at this point.  To achieve their Good Level of Development (GLD), they have to meet their Early Learning Goals in the first five areas of learning.
