KS3 Assessment
In 2015 the government removed National Curriculum assessment ‘levels’ from primary and secondary schools. As there is no longer a national system of levels, this gives the Open Academy freedom to introduce its own assessment system. In Key Stage Three we use a flight path to indicate whether a student is Emerging (E), Developing (D) or Secure(S), in the skills required to be successful in each subject at the end of KS4.

KS4 Assessment
In 2017, the government introduced new, tougher GCSEs. The new GCSEs are graded on a scale from 9-1: Grade 9 being the highest, Grade 1 being the lowest. This is the same for all schools in the country and will be the same for all GCSE qualification from 2019. The government judge a ‘standard pass’ at grade 4 and a ‘strong pass’ at grade 5.
