St John's Catholic Primary School

To Live in Love


At St.John's English assessment is an ongoing process to support our children to achieve their full potential and inform future planning. We use key learning tracking documents in reading and writing from Lancashire English Team to support our planning and set manageable targets. In addition to this we record assessment Target Tracker. To inform our judgement in addition to daily activities in class we use Rising Stars PIRA, PUMA and GAPS testing  on a termly basis in Years 2 - 5. Year 6 use past SATs papers. For reading we also complete 1:1 benchmarking on a more regular basis to ensure the books band that the child is accessing is correct for their reading ability. To support our judgement in writing we moderate our writing termly with another local school.
