We have developed our assessment and reporting system across all years to support students in reaching their full potential.
Target grades in Year 7, 8 and 9 are banded from Band A - E. On entry students are assigned to a target band across all subjects based upon their performance in their KS2 SATS. Forecast bands are predicted by staff at every data drop. There are three per year and these are reported to parents.
After choosing their GCSEs a target grade is generated in each subject for Year 10 student based on their KS2 SATS results. This target is reviewed across their KS4 journey by class teachers. Forecast grades are also predicted by staff at every data drop. In year 10 this is a two grade range, which is narrowed down to one grade in year 11. There are three data drops per year and these are reported to parents.
At Key Stage Five students are set target grades based upon expected progress according to their GCSE average points score. Forecast grades are predicted by staff at every data drop. There are three per year and these are reported to parents.
At all stages their attitude to learning is also measured against The 4Rs
