At Shakhsiyah Schools we passionately believe that assessment should be for the learner and do not believe in testing children against predetermined standards. This is explained further in our principle of Taqdeer

Rather assessment is a continuous part of the teachers work as it feeds into the teacher’s understanding of how to meet the needs of the learner. As the class size is small the teachers are able to closely monitor the progress of each child. We believe that feedback in the form of grades and levels distracts from the real and concrete objective of learning as recognised by many modern educators. Assessment is an ongoing dialogue between the teacher, parent/carer and child through which information on achievement and progress is collected and then used as a basis to inform teaching to develop the child’s full potential. These ideas are shared with other educators for example:



Objectives of Shakhsiyah Schools Assessment policy:


  • to ensure the teacher has sound knowledge of the shakhsiyah of each child and  is constantly thinking about the development of the individual child;
  • to recognise achievement in all aspects of the child’s life across our holistic curricula;
  • to raise achievement for all children by using assessment to build on the child’s strengths and to recognise individual needs;
  • to ensure that there is a common agreement about the purposes and methods of planning and assessment, and about how and what is to be recorded;
  • to ensure assessment is carried out continuously to inform and shape planning and teaching;
  • to inform planning through consistent marking and provide feedback so that children’s work is valued and children know what the next steps are to make progress;
  • to work collaboratively with for parents/ carers, children and others;
  • to provide a framework within which the school can evaluate curriculum delivery and children’s progress;
  • to aid review of resources for equipment and the planning of INSET/CPD
