Assessment: Creating Futures

Creating Futures is our cycle of reporting subject assessment data to parents.


Our Creating Futures cycle aims to:

  • Use reliable and valid assessments that test whether students are meeting the demands of our curriculum
  • Provide timely data to students, parents and teachers than can be used to support and challenge our young people to improve

Creating Futures at Key Stage 3

At key stage 3, students will sit assessments in their subjects during two week assessment windows. At each Creating Futures reporting period, subject areas will report whether students are meeting expectations in those assessments. 

Teachers will also report an Attitude to Learning (ATL grade).

Creating Futures at Key Stage 4

Year 10

In year 10, students also sit assessments in their subjects during two week assessment windows. At each Creating Futures reporting period, subject areas will report whether students are meeting expectations in those assessments. 


In the summer term of year 10, students will sit summer assessments, across most subjects. These exams will be used to report a current GCSE grade during the last Creating Futures reporting period of the academic year


Teachers will also report an Attitude to Learning (ATL grade).
