Assessment

Below are details of the statutory assessments that we must complete for pupils at Corsham Regis. In addition, we are using a new  system called PiXL Tracker which will track pupils’ progress as they move through the academy.

 

Reception Baseline Assessment.

Pupils are assessed at the beginning of their reception year.
