Term 3 assessment information
The downloads below include information about our upcoming assessments in the final summer term for students in Years 7-10. We share this information so that parents can help support their children with revision and exam preparation. We also hope that this will give greater context to the data shared through reports which will better enable parents to understand the progress their child is making.
All assessments in Years 7-10 are sat in class under examination conditions. They are not tightly constrained to one or two weeks so that they can fit more neatly into the curriculum structure of each subject, although there will naturally be some grouping together.
In several subjects, the overall assessment decision will include other evidence – such as ongoing assignments in BTEC and project work in design and technology. In certain subjects in Years 7 and 8 the assessment decision will be based on ‘evidence over time’ in exercise books and through the projects that students complete – with only 1 hour a week this is the most appropriate approach. The main purpose of homework in 2017-2018 is to practise, consolidate, and revisit previous material. Teachers will set tasks each week that support this.
