Assessment and Reporting

Assessment

In all subjects at all Key Stages, students are formally assessed at least 6 times per year. This assessment data is then used by staff when reporting home to parents.

Reports – all student reports will be emailed home via SIMS In Touch:

Target Setting

Students in Year 9 will have aspirational GCSE targets set for them in their core subjects (Maths, English and Science).  Students in Years 10 and 11 will be set aspirational target grades for all the subjects they are studying.  The target grades are based on a student’s Key Stage 2 outcomes and the National Key Stage 4 exam results.  This target grade will be shared with parents/carers as part of a student’s report home.

Students in Years 12 and 13 are set their targets based on their performance at GCSE using the National subject bench-marking information.

Predicted grades will be added to the reports of students in years 11 and 13.

The Campus will constantly review student’s progress against their target grade.  If a student consistently meets or exceeds their target, then they will be issued with a revised aspirational target for the following year.
