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.

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.
