How We Assess

 RWSCurriculum Transparent

At Ravens Wood School, our main assessment focus is our daily use of 'responsive teaching' - the advanced questioning used by our teachers in every lesson to assess students' knowledge and understanding, informing planning ahead of the next lesson. This formative assessment is underpinned by our Review, Plan, Teach approach to marking - further details below.

How we report to parents/carers:

We also formally assess students' progress three times per academic year. These summative assessments are reported to parents/carers. Further information on our summative assessments can be found in the guide at the bottom of this page.
