At Charville Academy we believe assessment is fundamental to extending and challenging the children’s learning appropriately. It is an integral part of the daily learning and is used to inform class planning, children’s next steps, resources, support, whole school objectives and training. Our assessment model enables class teachers to measure whether pupils are on track to meet end of year expectations. It enables class teachers to pinpoint the aspects of the curriculum in which pupils are falling behind and recognise areas that they are performing well.

Charville uses milestones for assessment which have been developed by Chris Quigley Education. The milestones are key statements which enable us to assess current attainment and progress against the end of year expectations. They are important objectives and are to be used alongside the National Curriculum.

In the Early Years and Year One we follow the Jolly Phonics and The Phonics Play scheme of work.
