Assessment for All is an effective tool for making summative judgements for all pupils working below the National Standard at KS1 and KS2 and has the potential for merging with other school systems that may already be in place.

At Fairfields we believe that all children can achieve. We are committed to ensuring we measure the aspects of a child's learning that we value. Our Assessment for All is designed to ensure we are measuring the progress of each pupil, reflecting their own learning journey. The information captured using their assessment can also be used to inform planning, ensuring it is purposeful, meaningful and memorable, shaping the progress pupils make.

Assessment for All does not ‘level’ pupils but gives a holistic view of each learning area which the pupil has mastered and what skills they are developing. Our four part measure can be used to demonstrate the small steps of progress children make. Alternatively, the small step measures already used in your own setting could also be applied.

The Assessment for All is based on the Developmental stages a child will progress through. It is important to start with what is observed and understood about the individual child.

The Assessment for All links to a typical progression in development and learning.

Assessment for All links to the EYFS Early Learning Goals, National Curriculum for Key Stage 1, the Pre Key Stage Standards and supports your chosen SSP programme.

Please keep an eye on our CPD and Training page for upcoming events.

We are also currently trialling Beyond the Rainbow, this is for children who are working within the Key Stage 2 programmes of study but require a more small stepped approach to assessment.

Beyond the Rainbow is designed as a supplementary document to support working beyond the assessment criteria set out in Assessment for All. At Fairfields we believe all children can achieve. We are committed to ensuring we measure the aspects of a child’s learning that we value. Beyond the Rainbow follows the principles set out in Assessment for All ensuring we are continuing to measure the progress of each , reflecting their own learning journey.
