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 motivate

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.

Attitude to Learning Criteria 2019 - 2020

KS3

Our aim at Regents Park Community College is to ensure that students achieve the highest level of progress that they are capable of.  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 Year 7 and 8 students will receive formal feedback in their work and in their reports home that will state that they are either:

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 and 8 student 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 9, 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. The difference will be that students will be measured against the progress they are making in achieving at a minimum, their GCSE target grade for each subject.  This target is a national expectation for each student based upon their KS2 SATs result.  Throughout Year 9 to 11 students will receive formal feedback in their work and in their reports home it will state that they are either:

B = Below Expected Progress

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.
