Year 8 Assessment

Assessing Progress at Key Stage 3

Our Year 8s follow a detailed scheme of learning designed to engage and challenge them. Parents can see what their child is learning and the progress they are making by looking their books. Each new section of work begins with an Assessment Journey:


Students are regularly assessed throughout the scheme and given high quality feedback, which shows them what they have done well and what their next steps are. The work will not be provided with a National Curriculum Level. Evidence shows that placing ‘levels’ on to students work has a negative effect, as it stops the child from engaging with the comments made by the teacher. At Lawnswood we expect our teachers to provide high quality, personalised feedback to our students so that they make rapid progress.

Parents will receive termly reports which show them whether there child is on track and making expected progress given their individual starting point.
