8. Monitoring Progress
Monitoring the academic progress of the pupils in this school will be accomplished by:
- On-going assessment of the language, literacy and numeracy skills of the pupils in the infant classes to facilitate early identification of possible learning difficulties by the class teacher.
- Formal and informal testing and observation of work by the class teacher.????
- Implementing the school policies on screening and the selection of pupils for supplementary teaching in English and / or in Mathematics by administering and scoring appropriate measures:
- For Senior Infant pupils: Micra-T each year in May
- For 1st to 6th Class pupils: Micra-T in May andDPMT each year in October
- Standardised and diagnostic testing by the learning-support teacher.
- Record keeping (Children have a file where records, test results and assessments are kept in a secure filing cabinet).
- Non-academic progress of pupils in this school will be reviewed informally, for example under the headings of improvements in the pupil’s self esteem; school attendance; attitude to learning; attitude to school and general behaviour.
