At Ark Kings Academy, we believe that effective assessment provides information to improve teaching and learning. Every half term children are assessed in reading, writing and maths. The Head of School meets with every teacher to discuss the data and the next steps for each individual child.

We then provide children with regular feedback on their learning so that they understand what it is that they need to do better. This allows us to base our lesson plans on a detailed knowledge of each pupil.

Throughout the year other subjects are assessed. We carry out moderation meetings to check our assessments with other local schools and schools within the Ark network.
