HOW WILL MY CHILD BE ASSESSED?

In Key Stage 3 there are also smaller, more regular end-of-topic tests (known as KPIs), which check the extent to which students have mastered the skills covered within the unit of work. These are closely based on the questions to be featured on the upcoming summative assessment, in order to give students the best chance of success when they come around.
