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.

In Years 7-9

When a child joins Waldgerave, their information from primary school is used to work out their Prior Attainment Band. The table below is an illustration of how these bands are grouped, but should not be taken as a prediction of what a child will achieve, only as a rough guide. The information we receive on your child joining the school is then triangulated against a CAT test (Cognitive Ability Test) and a reading age test to make sure that assignment of the prior attainment band is robust. 

Through their Key Stage 3 courses, our students will then be assessed based on this starting point. At these monitoring points, teachers state whether a child is making good, better than, below or significantly below expected progress. 

We have two monitoring points throughout a year and this is when we communicate with you as to how your child is progressing in their subjects. The second monitoring point will have a more detailed comment from your child's teacher on what is going well and what to focus on for improving.
