The school uses different types of assessment to judge how children are progressing. The teacher assesses how children are learning everyday. End of week table and spelling tests are used from 1st class up. End of term tests are given with written reports sent home in the summer. All Senior Infants are given a screening test in reading in February. Extra assistance is offered to children who fall below a certain level. Standardised tests are given in English and Maths to all classes from 1st class each May. As the results of these require interpretation against national standards parents should call to the class teacher. These results are also used in Parent Teacher Meetings.
