Curriculum Assessment at Oldfield Primary: 



  • Teaching, learning and assessment are integrated.
  • Assessment is key to driving progress.
  • Assessment puts the child at the centre of their learning to ensure everyone reaches their full potential.
  • Assessment is manageable, purposeful, accessible and time-efficient.
  • Our assessment framework values teacher professional judgment, dialogue and a common language.
  • We start topics with am assessment of skills and knowledge children should have from our curriculum. Flashbacks are used to ensure these are drip fed into children's sequence of learning. 
  • Assessment judgements are supported by a range of evidence- this may include flashbacks of prior learning, quick quizzes, note-making, mind-mapping mini- assessments, longer essay style assessments,  & pupil talk drawing in teacher knowledge.
