The tests have provided the framework around which the MAT has based their assessment strategy.
The tests have been the most useful investment we’ve made, certainly in terms of assessment, in the eight years I’ve led the school.
Many of the pupils come from the adjacent town where there are high levels of social deprivation and complex socio-economic needs, so it’s important that there’s no pressure on the children. Because the tests are brightly coloured and child friendly, we find that many of the pupils get quite excited about doing them.
The addition of the PiRA, PUMA and GAPS... allows us to compare pupil progress at both an individual level and also against a nationally referenced standard.
