Guidance notes for parents – new progress reports in Key Stage 3

As you may know, the Government expects schools to have moved away from using National Curriculum Levels at Key Stage 3, and so, instead of seeing levels such as 5a, 5b or 5c, you will see your child’s progress compared to the national average for a child of their age.

Therefore one of the four following words will be used to describe your child’s progress:

  • Developing describes progress in which skills and knowledge are beginning to be developed, but learning is not currently meeting age appropriate expectations.

 

  • Securing describes progress in which skills and knowledge are being well developed, and learning meets age appropriate expectations.

 

  • Mastering describes progress in which skills and knowledge are being very well developed, and demonstrates a high level of learning relative to age appropriate expectations.

 

  • Excelling describes progress in which skills and knowledge are being rapidly developed, and demonstrates great depth and breadth of learning relative to age appropriate expectations.

 

If you have any questions about what the new progress reports say about your child’s progress, please let your child’s Form Tutor know. Thank you.
