Assessment in Key Stage Three

Students are assessed against milestones which show the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired across each subject. Students will follow a pathway through their time with us – aiming to maintain or improve their pathway.  As students move from year to year, the demands of the knowledge, understanding and skills of the pathway will increase; so by maintaining their pathway students will be demonstrating progress.

The pathways are:

  • Mastering
  • Securing
  • Developing
  • Emerging
  • Beginning
