Assessment at Tollbar Academy

Underpinning Tollbar Academy assessment policy is the belief that all students are individuals and will be supported to achieve regardless of their starting point. All students will have high expectations and be set aspirational targets. We will take a holistic view to assessing student progress using clearly communicated Age Related Expectations at the core of our approach. All students are entitled to regular and good quality feedback which helps them to improve.

KS3

The progress of students at Tollbar MAT secondaries will be based on their attainment at KS2. This prior attainment score will be used to determine the students’ target score. This target score will largely remain constant for the duration of the Key Stage, but the challenge and demand that the students face in order to reach the same target score will increase each academic year. Students’ attainment at KS3 will be based on a score between 80-120. This score will relate to identified skills and expectations as set out in subject area Age Related Expectations.

At this Key Stage there will be three holistic grades issued to students and parents.

KS4

The progress of students will be based on their attainment at KS2. This prior attainment score will be used to generate a GCSE target grade for students to aspire to achieve at the end of Year 11.

In Year 10 there will be 3 holistic grades reported to students and parents, in Year 11 there will be 2 holistic grades issued.

KS5

The progress of students at Tollbar 6th form will be based on their average KS4 score. There will be four holistic grades issued to parents and students in Year 12 and three in Year 13.
