Primary Assessment Reporting
SIMS Assessment provides flexibility with assessment and reporting in a way that supports your school and the way you work. The SIMS Customer Success Team has developed a series of reports to assist primary school leaders, governors, and any other relevant stake holders to analyse statutory Key Stage data.
This year the DfE have announced they will not publish performance measures in 2022 –however, there will be still a need at school level to analyse and report on attainment so the Customer Success Team have updated the Attainment analysis resources. Schools can utilise these to analyse their own results as soon as they have been entered into SIMS.
Senior leaders can Identify what pupils across the school know and don’t yet know. Analyse progress and identify trends to see if pupils need extra support or encouragement to reach higher levels of attainment, regardless of age or ability.
The SIMS resources to enable schools to calculate and instantly analyse all Primary Statutory assessment result headline measures Phonics Year 1 and 2, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
What's in the resources?
