Assessment & Reporting
Assessment is used throughout the curriculum in order to provide appropriate feedback for students, staff and parents.
Our Data for Learning Policy can be viewed in our Key Information and School Policies section:
Key Stage 3
For 2019, Year 7 will follow our new model for reporting progress. Parents will receive a report on the following in December:
- Behaviour Points
- Reading Score
The Norm Referenced Standardised Score converts the student’s reading score (based on their STAR test and Accelerated Reader quizzes) to a standardised score. This takes into account the student’s age to show how the student is performing relative to a national sample of students of the same age. The national average score is 100. A score of 115 or higher exceeds expectations.
- Progress in English and Maths
- Five attitude to learning indicators
- The curriculum map for year 7
- Reasons for a concerns
At the end of the year, parents will recieve another report that will also include progress in all subjects.
An example End of Year 7 report can be found at the bottom of the page.
Year 8 students will continue to follow our old model of reporting progress.
Key Stage 4
All key stage 4 students will recieve three reports a year.
The report contains:
- Behaviour points
- Currently working at GCSE grade
- Predicted GCSE grade
- PPE Grade if taken
