Assessing with Building Blocks

Since September 2016, we have adopted a new approach to teacher assessment called ‘Building Blocks.’ 

Building blocks is a child friendly approach as the key skills (known as sub blocks) are streamlined;  this means that children can self assess their skills and progress. The ‘Building Blocks’ approach to assessment has been designed by an Outstanding School in Wolverhampton. Other schools who have also adopted this report favourably on the impact on learner progress and understanding due to the layering of key skills and the impact of learners being able to use the system and understand their personal targets.
