KS3 Progress Ladders

In our KS3, all subjects have an overlapping pathway approach which challenges all students to achieve their full potential, whatever their prior attainment. Each subject uses a Progress Ladder to support assessment judgements that links into clear assessment criteria. We use the following system to categorise students’ progress and inform classroom-based interventions in the 1st instance.

1 = Exceeding expected progress
2 = Making expected progress
3 = Below expected progress
4 = Cause for concern
