Assessment

Attitude to Learning

At Regents Park Community College a student’s attitude towards their learning is the cornerstone to success.  As a school community we believe students need to take pride in everything they do, respect everyone within the community including themselves and be creative in how they approach the challenges of learning.  With this in mind, every time we report home on a student’s academic progress we will also comment on their attitude to learning.  This will be done using a scaled score:

5 = Exceptional

4 = Highly motivated

3 = Motivated

2 = Requires action

1 = Unacceptable

The link below will take you to a document that gives you the key characteristics for each of these gradings.

KS3

Our aim at Regents Park Community College is to ensure that students achieve the highest level of progress that they are capable of and have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.  With this in mind, during a student’s journey through KS3 we will be assessing them against their individual ‘Progress Pathway’.  Each student who joins our community will have received a KS2 SATs result at the end of Year 6 in primary school.  It is this score that is used nationally to plot where a student should be achieving by the end of their compulsory school journey in Year 11.  Throughout Years 7, 8 and 9 students will receive formal feedback in their work and in their reports home that will state that they are either:

BB = Significantly below Expected Progress

B = Below Expected Progress

M = Making Expected Progress

A = Above Expected Progress

Each Curriculum Area has created a Progress Pathway Assessment Criteria document that outlines the skills that a low, medium and high attaining Year 7, 8 and 9 students will be demonstrating.  This document informs all staff of where a student is assessed at on their journey through KS3.

KS4

When our students start their GCSE journey in Year 10, we will continue to focus on ensuring that students achieve the highest level of progress that they are capable of.  This means we will continue to track a student’s journey on their individual ‘Progress Pathway’ which they started in Year 7. They will be given a target bracket, which contains 2 grades. The first of these grades, is each student’s minimum expected grade which we would expect to be obtained by the end of Year 11. If is student is making progress which would strongly indicate that they will obtain within this grade bracket at the end of Year 11, they are making expected progress. This target is a national expectation for each student based upon their KS2 SATs result.  Throughout Years 10 and 11 students will receive formal feedback in their work and in their reports home it will state that they are either:

BB = More than one grade below their minimum expected progress target

B = Within one grade of their minimum expected progress target

M = Making Expected Progress

A = Above Expected Progress

When a student reaches Year 11, alongside the tracking stated above, students will also receive a final predicted grade.

Each Curriculum Area has created a Progress Pathway Assessment Criteria document that outlines the skills that a low, medium and high attaining KS4 student will be demonstrating.  This document informs all staff of where a student is assessed at on their journey through KS4.
