How We Assess
All pupils who attend FPC are assessed on entry so that they can be allocated to the right group for their ability. During a child’s stay with us they have the option of moving classes when they progress and improve their English Language skills.
On entry pupils complete the Oxford English Placement Test as well as completing assessments in other subject areas such as maths. The outcome of the assessments determines which class a pupil is placed.
Pupils then complete during the year a number of formative and summative assessments with an academic grade being given at the end of each half term so that they are aware of their levels and the steps they need to take in order to improve their grades.
In 2019-2020 FPC are planning to carry out three Parent Evenings during the academic year so that parents are aware of the progress their child is making. Dates of the planned Parents Evenings will be published in September 2019.
