How and when is my child assessed?

The MFL department assess pupils in GCSE every term following the AQA specification. Over the course of an academic year we assess all 4 skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing through a range of skills based tasks culminating in an end-of-year examination.  Formal vocabulary tests will take place every 6 weeks also.
