We have a progression curriculum where we are always trying to ensure students learn the knowledge that will set them up for the nex stage of learning. Assessment is vital in this process.
Students in Year 7, 8 and 9 are assessed against the knowledge and skills we have identified need to be secure at the end of each unit and each year. These are our ‘end points’ and students are either ‘developing’, ‘meeting’ or, where students are excelling and going beyond our high expectations, ‘exceeding’ them.
At GCSE we use the 9-1 grades to judge how well students attain against the knowledge they will be tested on at the end of Year 11.
At A Level we follow the GCSE process but use the grades A*-E.
