Assessment in Maths

Children’s progress in Maths is assessed across the school in many different ways. The class teacher uses verbal assessments during daily Maths lessons; short Maths assessments at the end of a unit of work, and  NTA maths tests at the end of each term to inform their judgements. The children are assessed as emerging, expected or exceeding in the subject in relation to their year group expectations. Progress of each child is tracked and any children that are found not to be meeting their targets are monitored and targeted so that they are back on track quickly.


Statutory Assessments


As soon as our children enter the school in Reception , they complete a baseline assessment . This helps to inform the provision for every child so we ensure children can be to be as successful as possible . 

By the end of Reception , children are assessed against the Early Learning Goal indicators in the areas of Number and Numerical patterns . This forms a part of the assessment to ensure a Good Level of Development has been achieved by our learners


As the children progress through the school , there are milestones they must pass for the statutory assessments. This includes the Year 2 KS1 SATS , the Year 4 multiplication checker and the Year 6 KS2 SATS . These give an indication of whether your child has met the agreed national expectation for the end of their Key Stage. 

SATs, are made up of a selection of reasoning and arithmetic questions, are carried out at the end of Years 2 and 6. If you would like to see an example of the most up-to-date test, follow the links below:

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check

Since June 2020, all children in Year 4 are expected to take the new Multiplication Tables Check (MTC). They will need to know all of their times tables up to 12 x 12.


Therefore, please support your children in learning the times tables and practising them with them. Learning the times tables doesn't just mean being able to recite the times tables in order but it also means being able to recall them at speed in random orders as well as knowing associated facts such as 'Because 5x6=30 I also know that 30÷6=5 and 30÷5-6 and 50x6 =300 and 0.5x6=3'


The national expectation for knowing times tables is that by the end of Year 2 all children know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, by the end of Year 3 all children also know 3, 4 and 8 times tables and by the end of Year 4 all children know all times tables up to 12x12.
