Assessment without levels.
From September 2016, year 6 pupils will arrive in school without a key stage 2 level. We will have information from primary schools to tell us if your child is above, at or working towards the expected standards in English and mathematics. We will use this information to set GCSE target grades.
As a parent/carer of a pupil in years 7, 8 or 9 you will receive a report on the progress of your child each term based on our assessment from a Core Learning Entitlement (CLE). This is a set of standards we believe your child should reach to be making either exceptional, good, expected or below expected levels of progress.
Pupils in years 10 and 11 will be measured against their progress towards their GCSE target grades. You will receive a report containing this information each term.
In 2017 year 11 pupils in English and maths will receive a numerical GCSE grade. Other subjects will change to this system in 2018 and 2019. This table shows the approximate conversion.
