Monitoring Progress

We have developed our assessment and reporting system across all years to support students in reaching their full potential.

Target grades in Year 7 and 8 is banded from Band A - E. On entry students are assigned to a target band across all subjects based upon their performance in their KS2 SATS. Forecast bands are predicted by staff at every data drop. There are three per year and these are reported to parents.

After choosing their GCSEs Year 9 a target band of three grades (e.g. 5-7) and students in Year 10 a target band of two grades (e.g. 6-7) in each subject. This will be reduced to a single target grade per subject in Year 11. Target grades are also based on students' KS2 SATS results. Forecast grades are predicted by staff at every data drop. There are three per year and these are reported to parents.

At Key Stage Five students are set target grades based upon expected progress according to their GCSE average points score. Forecast grades are predicted by staff at every data drop. There are three per year and these are reported to parents.
