By listening to our children and through careful questioning, our teachers hear what our children know and need to know and adapt their lessons accordingly.
In the EYFS, key moments are recorded on our digital learning journey, which is available for all parents to also contribute to.
Progress is monitored in our school through our annual use of the GL Digital Assessment Suite, which monitors progress in English, Mathematics, Science, Reading, Spelling and Cognitive Ability.
Dallington children are prepared for external exams in a non-competitive, stress-free environment where they are expected to reflect on their own attainments and realistically understand the requirements of competitive exams, as well as their own high standards of self-regulated work.
Bearing in mind we are a non-selective school, consultation with parents is maintained so that appropriate applications can be made for places at secondary schools. We are very direct and open about a child's abilities and potential, whilst being sensitive to the aspirations of parents.
