KS3 Assessment Framework (KASH)
Over the last academic year, we have been engaged in thinking and consultation about how we can design an assessment system for Key Stage 3 students that first and foremost supports teaching and learning, whilst providing meaningful feedback that students can act upon.
Our new assessment system aims to:
- To provide a method for assessing and reporting student progress that is simple and easy to understand - for students and parents
- To be based on high expectations and challenge for all and to provide opportunities for all students to experience success
- Be closely linked to the curriculum and focused on supporting students in developing the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for success at Key Stage 4
- Support teaching and learning and encourages a ‘growth mindset’ by providing students and parents with high quality next-steps feedback focused on specific objectives
The new KS3 Assessment and Reporting Framework welcomes the introduction of KASH reporting to all KS3 students.
The Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Habits (KASH) are reviewed for each student in each subject on a termly basis.
Knowledge and Skills have been identified by subject areas in accordance with curriculum expectations.
Assessing progress in Attitudes and Habits provides us with the opportunity to monitor and support student progress towards demonstrating each of the five values that are at the heart of our school ethos - the 5 C’s.
