In Mathematics at Trinity Primary, we assess against Key Assessment Objectives for each year group. Each of these objectives have been taken and adapted from the new mathematics curriculum. In order to say whether a child is working towards, meeting or exceeding the national expectation, each objective has been broken down into four parts, each showing progressively more mastery. The grey column is the national expectation for each objective. The Key Assessment Objectives for each year can be found attached below.
Assessment of mathematics takes many forms at Trinity. These include summative tests (like end of Key Stage tests, commonly referred to as SATS); weekly maths reviews; times tables tests; learning during class time; ability to apply skills in differing contexts; resilience when faced with open ended tasks; and peer and self assessment. All of these are taken into account when deciding if a child has met the expectation for each Key Assessment Objective.
