How and when is my child assessed?

The Maths department assess pupils throughout Key Stage 3 and has summative assessments at the end of each term, revision lists are provided and students should be in the habit of regularly reviewing all their previous work. Assessments are graded using the GCSE 1-9 system; a current grade will be given along with a projection for GCSE. Pupils use skills books and assessment books.
