assessmentAssessment provides a whole school framework at which all different levels and perspectives merge so that educational objectives can be set and used to inform class planning, children’s next steps, resources, support, whole school objectives and training. Our assessment procedures are free from bias, stereotyping and generalisation in respect of gender, class and race. The aims of assessment in P.O.A. International Primary school are: `

  • monitor progress and support learning
  • recognise the achievements of pupils and identify any areas of development
  • inform pupils/parents of their progress and next steps
  • guide planning, teaching, additional support, curriculum development and resources
  • provide information to ensure continuity when the pupil changes school or year group
  • comply with statutory requirements

There are three main forms of assessment in Pearl of Africa International Primary School:
