Assessment

Assessment at The Polesworth School takes place continuously, through teachers marking students’ work and through students assessing their own work and that of others. These assessments are used to help teachers and students to set targets and to inform teachers’ planning of lessons.  In addition to this continuous formative assessment, subjects follow a programme of main assessments at regular times of the school year.  Below is the Assessment Schedule for this academic year:
