Marking and Assessment

Pupils at KS3 are assessed against a set of Indicative Competencies for each subject.

These Indicative Competencies ensure that assessment is reliable, meaningful and understandable by:

  • Identifying a maximum of six ‘areas of competency’ – the crucial skills, abilities and/or knowledge required in order to succeed in each subject across key stages.
  • Outlining a clear route of progress, with the competency demands at each grade increasing in depth, breadth and complexity.
  • Promoting the attainment of mastery of a subject’s competencies as the key to success.
  • Determining the grade at which these areas of competency emerge in pupils’ responses.
  • The format and wording of Indicative Competencies are designed to support feedback and target setting.

Pupils at KS4 are assessed against GCSE grade criteria.
