The St Alphege Steps assessment framework

Assessments and ongoing marking and discussion with children, families and between staff inform tracking of pupil achievement and progress. As a school, we track this through ‘The St Alphege Steps' assessment framework. These are a series of graduated assessment statements that our staff use to assessment the children's progress throughout the year. To download copies of the assessment steps, please click the tab on the left.

At the end of KS1, progress is deemed to be at one of three stages:

  • Progress and learning is seen as ‘working towards the expected standard’ if it is not yet in line with the curriculum expectations for that age.
  • Progress and learning is ‘working at the expected standard’ if it is in line with the curriculum expectations for that age.
  • Progress and learning is ‘working at a greater depth within the expected standard’ if it is above the curriculum expectations for that age.
