Year 2 – Numeracy Procedural Test Feedback

Your child has undertaken a short, online personalised assessment for Numeracy (Procedural) and their feedback is now available for you to view.

The purpose of personalised assessments is to help all children progress, through understanding what they can do, the things they need to work on, and their next steps.

What is Numeracy (Procedural)?
Numeracy (Procedural) focuses on numerical facts and procedures – the numerical ‘tools’ that are needed to apply numeracy within a range of contexts.

How does the assessment work?
The questions are chosen from a large ‘bank’ designed for Years 2 to 9. Each question is selected based on the answer given to the previous question. If pupils get a question right they are given a slightly harder question next. If they cannot answer a question, or answer incorrectly, they receive a slightly easier one. All pupils will get some questions right and some questions wrong, as this gathers information on the limits of what each pupil can do at that particular time. This means all
pupils will receive an assessment that is unique to them.

What does the feedback tell me?
This feedback represents a snapshot of your child‘s skills at the time the assessment was taken. It provides just one source of information on your child’s overall knowledge and understanding. Your child’s teacher will consider this feedback, alongside other information they have on your child’s skills in numeracy work in the classroom, in order to plan their learning.

  • The first section ‘The hardest questions I got right were on these skills:’ lists the areas in which your child gave correct answers for the most challenging questions.
  • The second section ‘I may need to work on:’ relates to the questions answered incorrectly and the areas they may need to focus on.
  • The final two sections ‘Most pupils with similar skills are able to … and are likely to move on to:’ relate to your child’s overall performance in the assessment and provide an overview of the sort of skills that pupils with a similar pattern of answers are able to achieve or are working

Reports to parents and carers will be provided at the end of the school year, showing progress over time, based on a standardised score.  These will take the form of previous National Test reports.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader…

Reading is so important. In fact , it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.

Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects.

Most importantly, reading can not only help you become a better student, but a better person. You can learn from the brightest people wherever and whenever you choose.

Books train your mind to imagine, to think big – Taylor Swift

To learn to read is to light a fire – Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

We have answered Pope Frances’ call to look after our world and support those who need our help. A very important part of this job is to pray for each other and pray for children all over the world.

Parents and Friends Meeting May 2019. What’s new?

Minutes for PTFA: 8th May 2019

Next meeting: Friday 7th June 2019 at 9:00 in Main School

Confirmed attendances for fete;

  • Surf School (Nick Thomas)
  • Theatre School (idea for them to run taster sessions for the children to take part throughout the afternoon).
  • Fire Services
  • Police



  • Mascots from local business/ bizzy bees (friends of the school) 1st refusal bring their mascots and to charge 50p for a photo.
  • Chloe found a business online which has rides and mascots free of charge for schools. (I will msg Chloe to find out if she has contacted them).
  • Leanne’s friend Danielle to do stall for bows & to approach Aberavon Quinns to see if interested in doing taster session.

All very positive so far.


Beach Walk:

PTFA meeting was called to arrange & plan the beach walk which was a great success from feedback I have received. Good turn out and lots of fun. Slight negative- Little confusion in regards to donation/sponsorship and perhaps food for thought for future things we organise.


Other ideas:-

Louise Griffiths (Secretary)has been made aware of a parent learning group which is running at another school (Central Primary). Theirs is mainly aimed at the early years (nursery/reception) they run a block of sessions to aid learning/teaching at home. It could be run quite informally by PTFA with perhaps one off “guests”. We could do tasters of jolly phonics so there would be opportunity for the adults to learn. Ideas of games to play…. ideas perhaps parents already do/ input from teachers also. There could be tea and coffee at the sessions and perhaps charge £2 a session with a drink & biscuit included. Perhaps run a block of 6-8 sessions. If it worked & there was demand other sessions could be run. Also if the sessions alternated the day….. there may be more chance of a wider catchment coming (granted parents may only attend one or two sessions that way but depending on numbers that may work out better).


Perhaps a family event which could take place early evening with a performer of some kind. Something that both children and adults would enjoy? Pay so much on the door or sell tickets with the usual drinks and snacks for sale and raffle.



1.We need to schedule the next PTFA in prep for the fete as that will be here before we know it.

2.Could reminders also be sent this Friday (tomorrow) in regards to book day as a lot of parents on our group had forgotten.


  • Kind Regards always
