Over the course of the year there are three assessment periods. Students following subject specific learning are baselined in Year 7 and then targets are set for the end of KS3 and KS4. Student progress is tracked in each subject against the targets set and interventions put in place to support development if needed. Some subjects: PE, Technology, PD and Humanities follow a termly cycle.
Students in Koa and Animus follow a three assessment period plan focusing on the individual curriculum areas. Students are baselined in each of the individual areas and then assessed on progress made at the end of term. This feeds into planning for the next steps of progress for individual students.
6th Form students follow a pathway assessment scheme where they are set individual targets based on life skills, functional literacy and numeracy and preparing for the future. Progress is assessed against these and reviewed three times a year.
All teachers and support staff who work with students are made aware of their needs, the outcomes sought, the support provided, and any teaching strategies or approaches that are required. We will regularly review the effectiveness of the support and interventions and their impact on the student progress.
