Overall the purpose of assessment is to improve standards, not merely to measure them”

“The quality of assessment has a significant impact on attitudes to learning and on attainment in schools by stimulating and challenging students to work hard and by encouraging teachers to focus on how to improve the learning of individual students”

“The core purpose of assessment is to move students on in their learning”

Assessment aims at Mark Hall Academy:

  • To provide clear guidelines on the Academy’s approach to assessment, recording, reporting and target setting
  • To establish a coherent approach to assessment, recording, reporting and target setting across all subject areas
  • To provide a system which is clear to students, staff, parents/carers and other stakeholders
  • To monitor and record students’ progress and ensure that it informs teachers’ future planning and students’ on-going learning
