Assessments & Reporting
WKGS has an Assessment without Levels Scheme which is in operation for students in Years 7 and 8. Full details will be given to parents at the Parent Information Evenings which are on:
Wednesday 14th September (Year 8)
Wednesday 19th October (Year 7)
A letter inviting parents to these events will be distributed in September.
The AWL framework is based around the new 1-9 GCSE framework and will ensure rapid progress is made in KS3 (Y7/8 at WKGS) in preparation for taking GCSE courses.
Students are beginning GCSE courses in 2016-17 using the 1-9 GCSE framework. More explanation was given in the Options booklet and can be found here. All grades will be reported using the 1-9 GCSE Framework.
Grades will be reported using the 1-9 GCSE framework in all subjects except Health & Social Care, Business Studies and Technology subjects, which will still use the A*-E grades.
Grades will be reported using the 1-9 GCSE framework for Maths & English & English Literature. All other subjects still use the A*-E grading system.
A-level grades (A-E in Y12 and A*-E in Y13) will be reported.
