Assessment Procedure

Key Stage 3 – Formative Assessments forms an integral part of every lesson. Students are encouraged to use the National Curriculum level descriptors to assess their learning and set targets. We assess children's work formatively through individual/group projects, individual/group research, class discussions, debates, role plays, cross curricular linking, linking UAE, making real life connections and effective questioning.

A Summative Assessment is done at the end of term 1 and term 3. Based on the Summative and Formative assessments student’s level of attainment are identified, new targets are set and shared with the students and parents.
