Parkhall Integrated College aims to “enable each pupil to achieve his/her academic potential”. Assessment is a process that provides information about an individual pupil’s experiences and achievements. It identifies what pupils know, understand and what they can do. Results of assessment are recorded to monitor and track pupil progress each term. The college considers its relationship with parents an important one if pupils are to reach their potential, therefore reports to parents contain relevant information on progress to date.
At key stage 3 (years 8-10), we have introduced a range of assessments for all pupils so that we can monitor their progress throughout the year. Parents will receive progress reports four times a year, and from these results pupils will have opportunities to set targets for themselves in order to improve upon their results.
At key stages 4 and 5 (years 11-14), pupils complete a range of assessments subject to the requirements of the individual subjects as well as internal/external examinations in January and May/June. Year 11 pupils receive reports in January and June, while year 12 receive theirs in January and years 13 and 14 receive their reports in February. Results for external examinations are forwarded to pupils as soon as the school is notified by the relevant examination boards (CCEA, AQA, PEARSON and OCR)
