Assessment at Greswold
The current National Curriculum for schools in England was introduced in 2014. Our assessment principles at Greswold are designed to link in to this curriculum. Children are assessed against a framework where the outcomes will either be 'Working Towards the Expect Standard', 'Working At the Expected Standard' or 'Working At Greater Depth'. Children who are working below these outcomes will be assessed against the 'Pre-Key Stage Expected Standards'. For children in EYFS, assessments will be made against the 'Development Matters' statements, which can be found online.
