‘Students ICT skills are outstanding and they make excellent progress during their time in school’ - CfBT Education Trust May 2012
Tracking and assessment of learning is detailed and thorough at Samakee. We use two online applications to track and monitor progress and to ensure that the needs of all children are met.
In primary a pupil tracking application was introduced in 2010. Pupil Asset enables us to effectively monitor individual, class ad phase progress, examine trends and ensure that high achievers are challenged appropriately and that other less able children do not fall behind their peers.In primary individual children’s progress is shared with parents during termly Parent Consultations and written reports are sent home three times per year.
The online tool that brings together teachers, students and parents. Set homework, track progress, share resources and engage parents.
Children have access to a very well stocked school library at Samakee. Our library is open throughout the school day and has a significant impact on our children’s eagerness to read.The children use the library in an interactive way when they log onto our system and online catalogue, Junior Librarian. Children are given their own unique PIN to access the school library at home and at school. This technology makes it much easier and in fact ‘inspiring’ for even very young children to check books in and out of our library by themselves and to see for themselves what they would like to read next.We believe in working in partnership with parents and carers so that everyone is aware of the power of books and the importance of reading aloud to children is encouraged enthusiastically. Our motto is, Read Aloud – Five a Day!
