How and when is my child assessed?

The Religious Education department assess pupils in Key Stage 3 every half-term following our own assessment model, derived from the Lancashire Assessment model. Over the course of an academic year, we assess knowledge, understanding and the ability to evaluate the impact of belief through a range of tasks culminating in an end-of-year examination.
