Teachers will formatively assess the children each time they take part in computing activities, based on the lesson objectives. Where appropriate, work will be marked, in line with the school’s Marking and Feedback Policy. This information is used to inform future planning. After each unit of work, teachers will formally assess pupils, in terms of the children being in line with, above, or below expectations for their year group.


Parents receive notification in the Autumn and Spring Reports if their child is working at or below the expected level to achieve Year Group Expectations. If they are below, a target is given to help the child ‘catch up’ at home. In the Summer Report, parents are informed if their child is working towards, meeting or exceeding expectations for their year group. These assessments may be discussed at the termly Parents’ Evening meetings.


Parents may also receive feedback on the different activities their child’s class are involved in, through the Class Facebook and Class Web Page. Governors are kept informed through verbal reports from the Computing Link Governor and verbal and written reports from the Computing Subject Leader.


In terms of providing the children with aspirations and ensuring engagement, children who are more able in Years 4, 5 and 6 are usually given opportunities to develop their skills by becoming Digital Leaders. Among their duties, Digital Leaders work to develop the skills of the children from Y1 to Y6 not meeting their age group expectations, through regular training sessions. This also includes SEND children. Digital Leader activities are currently on hold, due to the pandemic.
