Assessment and Reporting to Parents

Assessment without Levels

From September 2015, levels and GCSE grades are being removed for all schools nationally.

Our simple solution to this will ensure all students can fulfil their potential; maximising their life chances and being challenged to aspire for mastery and excellence. 

Key Drivers:

  • Create a curriculum focused on the progressive development and mastery of skills from KS2-KS4
  • Reduce the repetition of learning by ensuring skills and content are closely tracked from GCSE downwards
  • Reduce the focus on content coverage and number of areas studied, allowing for mastery of skills and knowledge
  • Ensure ‘Teaching and Learning’ sets high expectations; builds resilience and requires students to question and probe to encourage mastery
  • Encourage high quality work
