Spring Assessments (Years 7-10 & Year 12)
This year we will administer three assessment seasons within the school year. At the end of the Autumn term, students completed their Autumn assessments. Students will complete their Spring assessments before Easter and the final assessment season is towards the end of the Summer term. These assessments will be used by teachers to identify strengths and any areas where more support may be needed. Students also have the opportunity to reflect on their progress and to set targets for moving forward.
As with the Autumn assessments, the results of the upcoming Spring assessments will be shared with students and parents in a progress review report at the end of the term. Students will receive a report which details the percentage outcome from each assessment alongside the average percentage outcome for the class. This will enable parents to assess progress alongside the average outcome for the class and to see if your child is progressing at the expected standard for the group following the learning covered. More information will be provided alongside the assessment outcome results later in the term.
We want students to have the opportunity to be fully prepared for their assessments and have organised an ‘Spring Assessment’ booklet for each group to help support revision and organisation of time. You can find electronic copies of these linked below.
The Spring assessments will begin on 14th March 2022 and finish on Friday 25th March 2022. Teachers will advise students on how to use this booklet in lessons. It can also be used to help students’ study at home to help remember and recall information. As such, it is vitally important that students bring this booklet into school every day to use in lessons as well as home.
We recognise that sometimes assessment season can cause some students to feel anxious or stressed. If you have any concerns or worries please contact the Head of Year via the school telephone or email.
We want this to be a positive experience that supports and develops the skills and resilience in preparation for future examinations. If you need any further support, guidance or information please do not hesitate in contacting us.
For further information, please watch the video below which was delivered to the students ahead of their Autumn Assessments and outlines our assessment process.
