Assessment reporting

From October 2015 we will be making changes to the way in which we report to parents.

Changes to Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 grades

Firstly, we will be changing how we report the level of effort that our students are displaying in their work. We will assess this by two new measures; Attitude to Learning and Independent Learning.

Each of these will be graded on a 1 to 4 scale, where:

1 = Outstanding

2 = Motivated

3 = Poorly Motivated

4 = Disengaged


The criteria for each of the grades can be seen on the slides below.


Changes to frequency of reporting in Key Stage 3 & 4

From September 2016, we are changing the frequency with which we report to parents and carers of students in years 7 to 11. We will be reporting every 9 weeks.

This will allow teachers in those subjects to form more accurate judgements on the level of effort and attainment of their students, and then to carry out any necessary intervention activities.

In addition to Attitude to Learning (AtL) and Independent Learning (IL), we will also assess students’ attainment (Att). In KS3 Attainment is the level they are currently working at. In KS4 Attainment is a prediction of the grade they will achieve at the end of the course if they continue to progress in the same manner as they are currently.

Please see the tables below for details of when assessments are collected. They will be reported to parents in the school week following the collection week.
