Nothing but the best

Assessment

At Carlton le Willows Academy teachers have worked together to define assessment criteria that reflect the key concepts and skills taught within the new national curriculum.

At Key Stage 3 prior attainment and teacher assessment are used to assign one of four progress bands: Building, Developing, Secure or Mastery. Each progress band is provisionally linked to the most likely GCSE grade targets to be set at Key Stage 4.

At Key Stage 4 students are assessed using the new number system 1-9, which replaces the legacy structure G-A*.

More information is available in the download section below.

We will continue to challenge all students to achieve their best and provide support to ensure they are all capable of securing positive outcomes in Year 11.

Parents can expect to receive three reports each year which will be available online over the course of each year’s study. Reports will include a base target and an aspirational target, which has been determined individually for each student based on prior attainment and current progress.

In addition to regular reports, there is at least one Parents’’ Evening each year for all students. These provide an opportunity for parents to meet their child’s teachers and discuss any aspects of their progress.

Parents are also encouraged to contact teachers if they have any concerns which they wish to discuss between parents’ evenings.
