Examinations at Spratton are an important part of the process of assessing each child.
It provides us with information that allows us to:
- Understand the strengths and weaknesses of a pupil
- Use this information to inform our teaching and change things accordingly
- Place pupils in correct academic classes and sets
- Raise any concerns with parents regarding a pupil’s progress
Examinations take place at various points throughout the year for different age groups, but for all year groups there are end of year examinations in the Summer term. These are an essential way for us to evaluate how well pupils have understood what we have taught them throughout the year, and to forward plan for the following academic year to ensure that each pupil is placed carefully in the correct academic class and set where necessary.
