Assessment

The aim of assessment and recording is to monitor students' progress towards their target grades and to facilitate effective Assessment for Learning and Differentiation in both planning and delivery of lessons so that students remain on track to achieve their full potential. Assessment data should be used to highlight areas of underperformance so that appropriate strategies can be put into place and also to revise target grades (in both directions) so that they always remain realistic but challenging. Staff at Aureus use key information from Key Stage 2 (KS2) and from internal assessment to ensure that all students, regardless of prior attainment, make excellent progress. Assessment forms an ongoing student profile. Progress towards students' academic and social targets are reviewed during with teachers at Aureus.

At Aureus School, your child is entitled to

  • Regular testing of reading and spelling
  • Close scrutiny of class work
  • Moderation of student work against national standards
  • Tests at regular intervals throughout a subject course
  • Formal examinations prior to the writing of interim reports

In-lesson Assessment

The assessment cycle is simple and one that all teachers at Aureus adhere to. We use assessment data at to improve what is happening in the classroom; to help teachers understand where their students are and where they need to be; to motivate students and allows them to make progress and to inform parents and assist them in supporting their child's education.

In-lesson Assessment

Internal assessments run on a regular cycle at Aureus. These assessments are key points in each half-term. They give teachers a clear picture of the progress their students have made, informing their forward planning. They motivate students, helping them to understand what they have learnt and what they still need to cover. They are the end-point for the different units students are studying in their subjects, providing status and importance to the work that leads up to them and drawing ideas and concepts studied through the half-term together. They provide the content for the reports the academy sends to parents.

Targets:

Students are given clear targets for progress in individual subjects and towards overall goals through Key Stage 3 (KS3) and Key Stage 4 (KS4). Student targets are aspirational and communicated to parents at the start of the year and throughout the year through the reporting process. The school provides a clear overview of the assessment benchmarks students need to meet in order to meet overall targets.

End of Year Examinations:

Students are expected to sit end of year examinations. We believe that summative assessment provides a strong measure of progress and allows students to experience the process of examinations. The information gained from these examinations are reported back to parents and used to ensure that all students are on the correct trajectory for learning and progress.

Written Reports:

Parents and carers can expect regular contact about their child's progress at Aureus from staff as we believe that the school-parent partnership is vital in developing effective learners. There are regular, formal reporting points where parents can expect to be informed about attainment and progress. Parents will receive a hard copy of reports that will include the following information:

  • Baseline level/grade for the year for each subject
  • Current/most recent assessment level/grade
  • The end of year target for each subject
  • An indicator of whether students are on target or not at this point in the year. This is based on the flight path for that year and subject
  • Each student's attendance data
  • Each student's reading age
