Assessment and Reporting

Assessment and Reporting

Waldegrave reports the assessment of student performance and progress to parents/carers twice a year.  Our teacher assessments will be informed by a combination of classwork, tests and where relevant end of year examinations. In addition we hold Parents Consultation Meetings for each year group where there is an opportunity for parents/carers to discuss their child's progress with teaching staff. 

Key Reporting Dates

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

Year 10

Year 11

Year 12

Year 13

How is progress measured at Waldegrave School?

The Department for Education expects that all students make progress during their time in secondary education.  This progress is measured from individual student starting points which are the Key Stage 2 Primary SATs. 

In Key Stage 3

In Years 7-8

In Year 9

In Key Stage 4

In Years 10 and 11 we use the new GCSE points grades. How do these relate to old GCSE grades?

From 2017 for English and Maths GCSEs, and from 2018 for all other subjects, the A*-G GCSE grades will be replaced by a points scale of 1 to 9.  9 will be the highest grade and 1 the lowest.  The proportion of students nationally gaining at least a Grade 4 will be roughly the same as those who currently gain at least a C.  The proportion of students nationally gaining at least a Grade 7 will be roughly the same as those who currently gain at least an A.  The new Grade 9 will be awarded to the top 20% of students gaining at least a Grade 7.   The table below shows how the new number grades relate to the old GCSE grades.

In Key Stage 5

Once in sixth form targets for student progress and achievement are set using a system called ALPS.  These targets are based on the GCSE grades that students achieved in Year 11. All reporting points at Key Stage 5 will report on the students current ‘working at’ grade and the predicted grade, allowing you and your daughter or son to compare progress towards their ALPS target.
