Assessment For Learning

Assessment for Learning Statement

At Osmaston Primary School we believe that assessment for learning encourages pupils to take ownership of their learning.

Learning objectives are shared at the start of lessons and reviewed at appropriate intervals during the lesson and at the end of a lesson.

Lessons have clear steps to success which identify the skills, concepts and knowledge which will lead to success.

Pupils receive feedback on their learning and the lesson outcomes. This may take the form of oral and written feedback and peer assessment.

Effective questioning and self-assessment encourages children to judge the success of their learning.

Pupils are given individual targets linked to reading, writing and mathematics which focus upon the small steps they need to take in order to move forward in their learning. These are reviewed on a regular basis.
