Assessment & Reporting

In Years 7, 8 & 9:

All subjects are assessed using a set of Age Related Learning Objectives (ARLOs) for each year group.  Teachers will assess your child’s progress against each of these learning outcomes.

 

Each student is assessed in every subject using the following criteria:

 

  • They will be graded as WORKING TOWARDS if they are not yet achieving any of the age related learning objectives for their year group.  A student working at this level in Year 7 and 8 is likely to achieve a Grade 1 or 2 at GCSE in Year 11.

 

  • They will be graded as DEVELOPING if they are starting to achieve some of the age related learning objectives for their year group.   A student working at this level in Year 7 and 8 is likely to achieve between a Grade 2 to 4 at GCSE in Year 11.

 

  • They will be graded as MEETING if they are achieving most of the age related learning objectives for their year group.   A student working at this level in Year 7 and 8 is likely to achieve a Grade 4 or 5 at GCSE in Year 11.

 

  • They will be graded as EXCEEDING if they are achieving at a level above the age related learning objectives for their year group.   A student working at this level in Year 7 and 8 is likely to achieve between a Grade 6 or 9 at GCSE in Year 11.

 

We will also report if your child is showing early, good or consistent evidence of working at each level.

 

In Years 10 & 11:

  • All GCSE subjects are assessed using the 9 to 1 grading system (Grade 9 being the highest grade). Other qualifications will be graded using their awarding system.

 

  • The school will provide a professional prediction based on your child’s current performance that indicates the most likely outcome at the end of the course. 

 

In The Sixth Form:

For students studying Advanced Level subjects a grade is given ranging from A* to E, with a U being used to report when a student has failed to achieve a grade.  Other Level 3 Applied Learning courses are graded as Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction*.

 

The school will provide a professional prediction based on your child’s current performance that indicates the most likely outcome at the end of the course. 

 

For all year groups:

 

We will also regularly assess the following:

  1. Attitude to learning

  2. Homework

  3. Progress against the national expectation

  4. House Points for rewards

  5. Sanctions

  6. Attendance
