Internal Assessments are carried out to ensure that students maximise their progress, in order to secure the results needed to fulfill their aspirations over the coming years. As part of this strategy, we conduct regular practice examinations as this allows students an opportunity to become comfortable with the examination process and the associated challenges this brings. In addition, they also provide teachers with the information they need about students’ knowledge and skills to inform future lesson intervention planning.
In order for students to maximise their performance in these assessments, we would expect them to prepare effectively and to put in as much effort as possible so that staff know exactly what support they will need to achieve or exceed their potential. This preparation should include a combination of independent study and attending/completing any relevant revision opportunities provided by the Academy.
