All pupils will be assessed on spellings at the start of each term, using ‘TES Literacy Assessment Online.’ This will generate a spelling age for each pupil which can be accessed by all teachers.

A key part of the SPaG marking process at Longfield is for teachers in all lessons to identify spelling mistakes in pupils’ work and for the pupil to find and use the correct spelling.

Pupils will also complete ‘spelling quickies’ in all subjects to check for the spelling and meaning of key vocabulary.
