Assessment of Learning

We believe that children learn best when they:


  • Are interested and motivated
  • Achieve success and gain approval
  • Are clear about expectations in their work and behaviour
  • Are given appropriate tasks
  • Feel valued, secure and confident
  • Are challenged and stimulated
  • Receive feedback about their performance

Formative Assessment


Formative assessment, also known as assessment for learning, is a method of assessing pupils while learning is happening rather than at the end of a topic or sequence of lessons (summative assessment). 

At St Simon Stock formative assessment can be conducted through a variety of methods, such as targeted questioning in the lesson by the teacher, exit questions and recap starter activities, or peer and self-assessment that promotes reflection and the sharing of knowledge.   

It is integrated and ongoing, moving away from marks, grades and levels. A key principle of this style of assessment is that, in evaluating the comprehension levels and learning needs of students, teachers can amend and tailor their approach in future and address misconceptions promptly.

Our Values



Prayer & Faith




We must ‘Go and do likewise’, to serve the needs of others.

We are ‘One Body in Christ’, inclusive and welcoming to all.

We are called to ‘be constant in prayer’ to discern God’s love. Students are invited to faith, participating in regular acts of workshop as forms, classes, year groups, and a school.

Students are expected to be hopeful, showing respect to themselves, their peers, teachers and the environment.

Students are expected to be charitable through acts of service in school and the wider community.

Students are expected to maintain a scholarly attitude in all lessons and work to the best of their ability and engage where they can in extra-curricular activities.
