Update Four

At present (WB 10/11/14) all children are being tested on reading so that they will all have an up to date reading age. This will allow us to track their progress over this year and their subsequent years in school. It will allow us to identify rapidly any children who require support to bring their reading back on track and to support all the reading initiatives that are ongoing throughout school.
Over this term the testing will be expanded to include a comprehension and spelling age.
These tests are child friendly and last no more than 5-10 minutes. The children are put at ease with an adult they know and they do not put any pressure on the child and are completed confidentially.
Importantly they will allow your child to progress and be put quickly on interventions that will support their learning.
I am sure you agree reading and spelling are fundamental life skills that need to be mastered and monitored carefully.
