Assessment at KS3 – the journey through the key stages.

Understanding the attitude to learning grade (all years):

Subject Grading for KS3 and how it links to GCSE studies:

We report on the attainment of each student for all subjects and we will be using the following assessment system to do this: emerging, developing, securing and mastering.

  • Mastering: Based on current progress the student is likely to gain the highest grades at GCSE in this subject at the end of KS4.

 

  • Securing: Based on current progress the student is likely to gain a minimum of grade 5 at GCSE in this subject at the end of KS4.

 

  • Developing: Based on current progress the student is likely to gain a grade lower than 5 at GCSE in this subject at the end of KS4 although this can change in future.

 

  • Emerging: Based on current progress the student is likely to achieve the lower grades at GCSE subject at the end of KS4, although this can change in the future.
