Assessment At Burfield, we believe ongoing assessment is key to tracking learning and planning the next steps for each child. We assess termly (every six weeks) using the assessment tracking software O Track. This allows the teaching staff to make a judgement about each child’s progress against the standards mapped in the national curriculum. These are the ‘age-related expectations’ for Year One. We expect all children to meet these expectations so they are ready for Year Two.
