Assessment

Assessment from 2014 at The Stonehenge School

2014 onwards

From September 2014 the Secretary of State has decided that the current system of national curriculum levels will no longer be a requirement. However, you can continue to use levels.

In light of the changes to GCSEs and the extra rigour being placed on these we have decided as a school to change assessment at the school from 2015-16. The ‘Assessment at Stonehenge School’ document explains this in more detail. Over the academic year more information will be distributed and also a launch evening will be held explaining the changes and how it will affect your son/daughter. Within 2015-16 we will also publish the final assessment policy including new grade descriptors ensuring our students are fully prepared for the national changes.

Trackpoint and Data Analysis

Within Year 7, 8 and 9 parents/guardians/carers will receive 3 reports a year. The teacher will report on current attainment within the subject. The report will also include behaviour and homework grades.

In Year 10 and 11 parents/guardians/carers will receive 6 reports a year (5 in Year 11). The teacher will report on predicted grade within the subject. The report will also include behaviour and homework grades.

Please see the ‘Data Information Sheet 2014-15’ for a detailed explanation of the above.
