Performance

 

At Garfield, we are committed to ensuring that all children achieve to the best of their ability. Children are expected to make good progress, many making better than expected progress across the year. By providing enriched, innovative learning experiences, children at Garfield develop as independent learners, embracing challenge in order to succeed.

We recognise that children learn in a variety of ways and ensure that teaching across the school is reflective of this. We also uphold and support the emotional development of all of our children as we recognise the link between feeling safe and secure in an environment and good achievement.

When pupils leave Garfield, we are proud that they have developed into well-equipped young people who display purposeful life choices and make a significant contribution to the wider world in their adult life.

Key Stage 1 Phonics Screening

Children take part in a Phonics Screening test during the Summer term of Year 1.  If a child does not achieve the pass mark for working at required standards in the Year 1 Phonics test, they are given a second opportunity to re-take the test in Year 2. Phonics is taught every day in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 using the Ruth Miskin programme, Read, Write Inc.
