Assessment

“Life After Levels”

Since the former system of “levelling” children’s attainment was withdrawn by the Government, we have been working on finding alternative ways to record summative assessments for our learners.  We have implemented a market leading assessment tool called ‘OTrack’, which allows us to input our assessments and track progress and attainment.  We use Assertive Mentoring to assess maths, a home grown system for assessing writing (based on the end of Key Stage guidelines), together with Assertive Mentoring, and we are also currently trialling a new scheme for assessing reading.

These processes enable staff to identify any additional support or further challenges which may be required for the children to achieve their full potential.
