Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about Ladygrove school. It asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school: from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.
The information you provide is used by Ofsted to decide when to inspect. Parents can see what other have said about Ladygrove, and view the results for any school in England.
Ofsted's School Data Dashboard gives a range of performance data for Key Stages 1 and 2 to show the percentage of pupils reaching the expected level in the key subjects of grammar, punctuation and spelling, reading, writing, mathematics. It also highlights the school's overall attendance and the closing the gap measures , the attainment and expected progress of disadvantaged pupils compared to other children.
At Ladygrove we follow the Cornertones Assessment system. Children in Years 1-6 are assessed and are then given a chronological age for their development. Their progress is then assessed termly. We use the Cornerstones' Arithmetic and Reasoning papers to support judgement for Maths, Reading and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.
In Reception we assess using the Early Year's profile. Children are then assessed using ages and stages bands.
