Why do we assess?

  • To identify attainment
  • To check progress
  • To identify weakness
  • To identify next steps/set targets

To monitor assessment and to ensure consistency across the Academy, we have:

  • Assessment calendar
  • Intervention plans and sessions
  • Re-testing Y7 in September for KS2 SATs (English / Maths / Science)
  • Baseline assessments in September for Art / PE / PA
  • SLT link to check appropriateness of all assessments
  • Half termly work scrutiny including assessments
