KEY STAGE 3 ASSESSMENT

At Lutterworth College, we have developed an assessment and reporting policy for KS3 that focuses on each individual student, so that they can be supported to achieve high levels of progress. 

Each subject has designed a long-term curriculum and assessment plan that maps out the knowledge, skills and understanding required to be successful in a subject.

On entry to Lutterworth College students are given a progress pathway, this is based on their prior attainment at primary school.  Using this pathway, they are set an individual target grade for that year; they need to achieve this target grade by the end of the year to maintain this pathway.  During the year they will be given opportunities to develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills and understanding in each subject that are relevant to that pathway. 

A student’s progress is monitored and assessed throughout the academic year with outcomes from key formal assessments recorded in GO 4 Schools which all parents and students have access to. You will be sent information about your child’s progress and/or behaviours for learning three times a year in a Progress Review report.
