At Epping Primary School assessment is at the centre of our creative curriculum and is the basis of good teaching and learning. It allows learners to recognise their achievements and make progress. Assessment and its associated feedback are essential to pupil learning.
Good assessment encourages active learning and allows teachers to shape and adapt their teaching to individual needs. Peer and self-assessment, can foster a number of skills, such as reflection, critical thinking and self-awareness – as well as giving pupils insight into the assessment process.
Assessment for teaching and learning focuses on the opportunities to develop pupils' ability to evaluate themselves, to make judgements about their own and others’ performance and improve their own and others’ learning. It makes use of reliable assessment methods and offers lots of opportunities for pupils to develop their skills through formative assessment.
