Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. Inspectors working for Ofsted follow a Framework for School Inspection that frames their judgements on a school's performance.
Parent View gives you the chance to voice your opinion on Lilleshall primary school to Ofsted. It surveys how you feel about 12 aspects of the school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.
Ofsted uses this information to inform their decision on when to next inspect. Parents can see what others have said, and view the results for any school in England.
Information about our test results, attendance, intake and other school data are availble on the Department for Education Performance Information site.
Assessing pupil achievement and monitoring progress
The National Curriculum was reviewed and a new National Curriculum became statutory in 2014. The new curriculum sets out programmes of studies for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. The new curriculum reflects higher expectations and requires raised attainment in all year groups. As a result levels are no longer appropriate to assess pupils’ achievement and monitor progress towards the end of key stage outcomes and thus were removed by the Government. Therefore, we have developed a new assessment system that will assess pupil achievements and monitor progress, so that it reflects the raised expectations; this system is in place for all year groups. The systems introduced will assess children, identifying whether they are on track to meet national end of year expectations for their year group. For example children will be judged as:
If pupils are assessed as being at the typical stage of development for their age at a particular time then they will be judged to be on track for the end of year expectations and making good progress across the year. Some pupils may be working towards end of year expectations and will have additional support to enable then to close the gap; other pupils will be working above their expected end of year expectations and will access teaching and learning opportunities that reflect this, adding breadth and depth to their learning.
The stage your child is working at, the targets set for your child and what they need to do to achieve them are shared with parents on parents’ evening, in October and March. This information enables parents to have an understanding of where their child is in relation to national expectations and what their child needs to do next, to achieve the best possible outcomes for them.
