Assessment Calendar

Students will complete assessments during the year and reports will be sent home to parents and carers or handed out at parents' evenings. Details of the assessment schedule for each year group, and also parents' evening dates, can be found in the school calendar.

Progression model

Student knowledge is coherently and logically sequenced in the curriculum so that it can develop incrementally over time. Student work - as seen in lesson observations, workbooks, practicals and summative assessments - should demonstrate efficient and meaningful acquisition of knowledge.

Our approach to assessment and feedback is designed to support the progression model by: 

  • Providing relevant, clear and helpful information about the current skills and knowledge of the learners 
  • Providing students with regular opportunities to recall and practise previously learned skills and knowledge 
  • Providing opportunities for misconceptions to be addressed so that students overcome these in future work.

What will be reported to parents/carers?

Reports will be sent out twice a year and will contain students mark for their assessment and an ACR score.

The ACR sore will outline from 1-3 how well a student is meeting our HAB values of Ambition, Compassion and Respect and will measure effort alongside attainment to inform parents of their daughters’ overall progress. 


ACR scores: 

3: Almost always demonstrates these behaviours and value
2: Often demonstrates these behaviours and value
1: Rarely demonstrates these behaviours and value

How to Revise

Preparing for exams is a big task. You need to revisit all the learning from across your course of study and ensure that you can bring it to mind, unaided, under the pressure of exam conditions. There’s no way to make the exams easy, but you can take the pressure off if you’ve done your revision right. 

The Basics  

  • Limit distractions.  
  • Create and use a revision plan.  
  • Find a nice quiet space to revise in.  
  • Set an alarm and start early!  
  • Revise. Repeat. Remember.  
  • Make sure you eat, sleep and take time out.  
  • Stay positive.

Revision Timetable

Organisation is key to your success at your exams. It will make revision much easier if you have a set out time for revising each subject. Use the half-term holidays to plan your revision, making sure you do a spread of subjects.  

Here are some important points to remember when planning your revision.

  • Be realistic and plan time away from your work to avoid burn-out!
  • Be focused: 20 minutes working followed by 10 minutes rest is a good starting point.
  • Leave your phone turned off/on silent in a different room whilst you are revising.
  • In every hour, only work for 50 minutes at a time and take a break away from your revision.
  • Planning helps you to balance your time so that you don’t spend all your time revising one subject.
  • If you share your revision plan with friends or family then you are more likely to stick to it.
  • Make sure you give yourself breaks to allow time to relax and do the things you want to do and enjoy doing. 

Revision Tools

There are lots of ways to revise out there and finding one that suits you can be hard. You might find that different subjects require a different way to revise, but that’s good. Changing the way you revise can keep it interesting and accessible. Below are some suggestions you can try out to see what you like the best.
