Assessment and Reporting

Clear Assessment, Tracking and Reporting

All staff are expected to follow the Academy assessment, tracking and reporting policy;

Assessment

  • Plan, assess and deliver a curriculum that meets the demands of the new academic standards (grades 1 – 9)
  • Plan for and assess progress in relation to students’ targets. Targets are generated from KS2 attainment scores and are set to ensure that students make outstanding progress
  • Ensure every student knows their target grade, knows where they are in relation to their target grade and how they can improve e.g. ‘I am targeted a grade 5 and I am currently working at 4.6 – consistent evidence

Tracking & Reporting

  • Formally record students’ progress in relation to their targets through minimum 4 Progress Updates. Progress Updates occur Four times throughout the academic year:
    • In KS3 (Y7 – Y8) Progress Updates will measure progress in 2 ways:

        • Developing evidence of achieving grade (.4)
        • Consistent evidence of achieving a grade (.6)
        • Sustained evidence of achieving a grade (.8)
