Assessing and Reporting


Following the Governments rationale on assessment without levels, St Joseph's will be assessing and reporting on the children's depth of understanding within their phase. If a child is showing understanding below phase expectations, they are considered to be working towards (WT). Most of our children will show some understanding at the beginning of a phase with support. At the beginning of a phase, most children will demonstrate an emerging understanding (E). As children develop a deeper cognitive understanding they will be able to work more independently moving from an advancing (Working Within WW) to a secure (S) understanding.
