Assessment at Springwater School is a continuous process which is integral to teaching and learning, allowing children and young people to reach their potential. Assessment is incorporated into every day teaching in order to promote the best possible progress for individual pupils.

When assessing pupils at Springwater School, we aim to strike a balance between using curriculum and subject-based assessment frameworks on the one hand and personalised, pupil-centred assessment approaches on the other. Having a multi-faceted approach to assessment is important, because a single type of assessment may fail to give a full picture of our pupils’ achievements and areas for development. Having a combination of assessments for each pupil allows us to establish a clear picture of their attainment, progress and next steps.

Please see our Assessment Policy for more detailed information about assessment across Springwater School.
