MPS has developed an in-house system of assessment. Children are assessed against core objectives in each subject via work scrutiny, test performance and observation. A score of 1-9 is awarded for each objective with 1-3 being Below the Expected Standard, 4-6 Meeting the Expected Standard and 7-9 Working at a Greater Depth. Assessments take place each term; staff have ‘Pupil Progress Discussions’ with the Headteacher twice per year to evaluate data and plan additional support for pupils

The advantages of this system are:

  • Using the coloured system, progress and attainment are easy to measure, describe and track over time.
  • Children at risk of falling behind are quickly identified, and specific gaps (which of the key objectives can’t they do?) can be corrected.
  • It is a ‘teacher-led’ system. It does not use a complex (and expensive) computer algorithm to decide where the pupils are; staff use their professional judgement and expertise to make assessments.

A copy of a PowerPoint presentation about the assessment is available here.


A ‘Safeguarding Culture’ is our highest priority. The latest regulations and advice relating to safeguarding in schools can be found on the following links:

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding which is allocated to support children who:

  • qualify for free school meals
  • are looked after by the Local Authority
  • have parents employed by the armed forces

For details on our Pupil Premium Strategy go to our Pupil Premium Strategy for 2020-2021

Sports Premium

In 2020-2021 our school will receive around £16,000. This is invested in professional coaches to lead in-school and after-school sports sessions; pay for transport for sports visits to other locations; allow weekly tennis and swimming lessons and to acquire new sport related equipment.

For more details on how we use this money and the impact it has on the pupils at Mugginton, go to our Sports Premium Fact sheet.

The School Improvement Plan

The School Improvement Plan (SIP) aims to make sure that all pupils make at least expected progress.

The linked diagram shows the SIP at the heart or those activities.

The three priorities for 2020-2021 are:

  1. .To make sure the coronavirus lockdown affects our children’s academic and mental health as little as possible by:
    a) Thorough baseline testing to identify gaps in learning and targeted, rapid responses to any deficit uncovered;
    b) Maintaining our Mugginton-ness - keeping safety measures as unobtrusive as possible whilst observing all necessary precautions stringently.
  2. Further develop the curriculum so progression and skill development is clear in all subjects. Re-write subject policies so the rationale and intent behind the curriculum plan and the intended impact of specific initiatives/teaching sequences on outcomes are clear to all and result in improved academic outcomes.
  3. Further develop the progression of vocabulary and spelling in all subjects through cross-curricular topic work.
