Our Data - How are we doing?
How we assess pupils
Accurate assessment of pupils is essential to identify what your child can do and what your child needs further support with. At Nightingale, we use a variety of assessment strategies to help us to support your child. These include:
- Making observations
- Asking questions
- Providing feedback, both in writing and verbally
- Gap analysis of test results
All of this information then helps us to make an accurate teacher assessment and set challenging targets for your child. It is our expectation that children will make good progress each year. Teachers make assessments constantly and use these to adapt their lessons to match the needs of your children. We also complete formal assessments of pupils at key points in the year which support our teacher assessments. We use a pupil assessment tracker system to then input data and use this tool to interpret the data and identify any issues that we can then address to ensure all children make progress that they are capable of.
We have high expectations of all our pupils. However, we understand that children are different and that some may make more progress and some may make less. Our focus is always that the children, regardless of their starting point, make good progress at Nightingale.
Data & Results at Nightingale
The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.
