In 2014 the government removed national curriculum levels with the intention of complementing the introduction of a revised, more challenging national curriculum.
Therefore at KS3, like all schools across the country, we have our own in-house reporting system for progress.
At Linslade, our feedback and assessment policy aims to provide timely, effective and tailored feedback which meets the needs of all learners. We view effective feedback as an integral mechanism for meeting the needs of all students, providing appropriate levels of challenge and maximising potential.
All pupils in Linslade are assigned a learning pathway for each subject on entry. Within each subject, the pupils will learn essential subject knowledge and develop key skills identified in their assigned Key Progress Indicators (KPIs). The KPIs in each pathway develop in challenge as pupils progress through Middle school, preparing them with the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to achieve or exceed their targets.
Pupils are assessed regularly in lessons through a variety of Assessment for Learning methods and personalised feedback is provided to continually develop their learning.
Formal assessments take place against the KPIs at least once per half term in every subject through.
