A key measure of school accountability is the children's performance in the Year 6, End of Key Stage 2 Tests which take place in May each year.
Internally, we track the progress of all children each term so that support can be targeted to children who need it most and teaching can be effective in identifying children's next steps in their learning.
This 'in year' progress data is not usually shared but we are very willing to have conversations with individual parents about their child's progress at any point in the school year. In fact, such conversations are actively welcomed and encouraged.
At Pickering Community Junior School we consider progress to encapsulate more than just hard data. It is often more difficult to measure the growth in a child's confidence or their happiness whilst on a school trip. However, these outcomes are as equally important as the data provided by the statutory testing that we carry out. I would ask that you read our 'Year In Review Document' to get a flavour of what our school stands for and gain a small insight into the breadth of the work we do. Further information can also be found on the 'Curriculum' page, too.
