Year 8 Progress Tests June 2022



Dear Parent/Carer


Following on from assessments completed at the start of Year 7, your child will be taking part in some online tests week commencing 13th June 2022. These tests allow us to monitor progress across English, Maths, and Science over the year and are used to ensure learners are making the expected progress in relation to their starting point.


The tests will cover all areas of the national curriculum in English, Maths, and Science at key stage 3.  It is important to emphasise that these tests are to help us improve and personalise our teaching and we are really keen that students should not find them too stressful.


As a parent you might like to set aside some time to go through with your child what they have learnt in these subjects over the past two years and go through the online tools listed below.
