The National Curriculum

At Woodcroft we have regard to the National Curriculum and the associated guidance as to its use. Where appropriate, pupils may be entered for SATS, in particular Key Stage 2 testing and assessment.

As the academic performance of many of our pupils is outside national expectations, Woodcroft uses the PIVATS V (Performance Indicators for Value Added Target Setting) approach to help inform what constitutes good progress. The regular use of PIVATS allows the school to build a picture of each individual child’s progress.
