At Key Stage 3

  • Students will be completing two formal assessments during the academic year.
  • This will test students’ knowledge of most of the work covered during the academic year.
  • Teachers will use these assessments to report back against the following standards:

Developing – working towards the expected standard.

Assured – working at the expected standard.

Extended – working at greater depth within the expected standard.
