We have not shared the assessment policy for a couple of years now and as we look to review it later this academic year I thought it was important you all had access to it.
It was created in 2013 and amended in 2015 as we made changes to our reporting to parents timeline (we added in parent consultations in Term 2).
Please click HERE to access the Peak School Assessment Policy. It covers assessment, recording and reporting (to parents). The assessment provides an overview of the different assessments that we use at the school, how we record it and when and how we report to parents. It is in our annual plan to update it in Term 3 and we will be seeking feedback from all stakeholders during this review.
For your information we are currently working on an online platform for planning and assessment and once this is ready (hopefully by the end of next academic year) we will then look to launch the reporting component of the platform (likely to be 2019/2020). This will mean that in 2019/2020, Gateway will no longer be used to access reports as the new online platform will house the reports.
Just a reminder that we have Parent Consultations later this term. Please mark the week of March 12-16 in your diary as this is the week that they will be held. We will shortly send out the exact timings e.g the day for Year 2 consultations. However, we already know that Thursday 15 is the evening for all year groups. From 3.30pm to 7pm we will be holding parent consultations on Thursday 15. There will also be another day that week, during school time, that you can make an appointment. We like to give parents the option of during the day or in the evening, something that not all schools do and certainly not something secondary schools often do.
