How we assess children at DKH

The way we assess our children has changed. As part of a government decision, we are no longer using the levels assessment system that parents and children may be familiar with but are instead adopting a Southwark Assessment scheme, known as STAR. Our teachers are already using it to assess children against the new National Curriculum. Children were introduced to STAR in an assembly so that they are aware of how we are using it to support them with their learning. A well-attended parent information meeting was held on Wednesday, 9th December to demonstrate to parents how STAR works. Please click on the link below to view the presentation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to Mr Orton.
