Since the removal of levels from the National Curriculum in KS3 , we as a school have developed a system, namely Flightpaths, to ensure that we track and monitor all students’ progress from Year 7.
The purpose of using flightpaths Is to ensure that the key knowledge and skills required for success at KS4 are developed early on in KS3.
The system is based on the high expected standards of students and has a strong focus on qualitative feedback and encouraging all students to succeed.
In KS3 Students are not assigned an End of Year or End of KS3 target but now an End of KS4 flightpath
Assessment is based on progress made along their assigned flightpath and so celebrates effort of all students, with different starting points.
Students are given feedback designed to encourage them to think about how to develop their learning to progress.
Each department has developed its own set of flightpaths and set of assessment criteria and these can be found in the section for each year from Year 7 through to Year 11.
