Children are continually monitored and assessed throughout the year.
This enables us to build a profile of their level of development and targets for children to work towards.
This year sees the introduction of the Reception Baseline Assessment. Children work with their teacher to complete a series of activities, these activities will indicate the level that each child is working at when they join us in Reception.
More formal assessment of achievement takes place at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Children are assessed by their teacher and given standard assessment tasks SATs which show the level the child has attained in the National Curriculum subjects of English and Maths. Children in Y1 take a phonics assessment.
The latest KS2 SATs results can be seen here.

Children living in the Ripon secondary school catchment area are required to take the 11 plus exam to determine suitability for selective school. The exam is compulsory and any parent who wishes to withdraw their child from the test must write to Harrogate Education Office.
