Please click HERE for details of the LA Admissions criteria which apply to Pitsford Primary School, which is a local authority maintained primary school.
Our Published Admission Number for intake is 10 pupils. In 2019 and 2020 EYFS was over-subscribed. However, we have some spaces in other year groups. If you would like to find out more, please contact the school office.
At Pitsford, the progress of all children is continuously monitored and assessed by class teachers. This is through both formative and summative assessment (daily, weekly and termly assessment). Our expert team of teachers are constantly reflecting upon ‘Where the children are’ and ‘How we can meet their needs.’ As such we are firm believers that assessments are a part of school life and a means to measure how well the children – and the school – are doing. They are not the focus of our work and we are passionate about a balanced education rather than one that narrows the curriculum to focus solely upon exam outcomes.
In Foundation Stage assessment takes the form of the Pupil Profile which monitors the progress of the children in all areas of the curriculum. We use a secure online system called Tapestry to allow parents to input to this process so we gain a rounded picture of your child.
Teacher assessment and tracking forms the majority of our assessment work. This is linked to our iTrack system and a tracking system designed by our team to complement our curriculum model, and allow us to monitor the progress of pupils in non-core subjects.
In addition to this there are a number of nationally administered assessments, including the Phonics Check in Year 1.
Year 2 and Year 6 children undertake Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) in English and Mathematics as well as having their writing continually assessed so that teachers can make a final judgement at the end of their year.
Parents are notified of the results of Key Stage 1 and 2 assessments at the end of the school year, and this data in an anonymised format is used to assess how our school compares with others in our Local Authority and Nationally.
