Assessments & Reporting
Teachers use a range of assessment approaches to determine pupil attainment grades
All students are graded using a 0-9 scale, similar to the system used for GCSE outcomes. This continuity across Key Stages 3 and 4 will enable you to track progress throughout a pupil’s time at Saracens High School.
The 0-9 grade is followed by a sublevel a, b, c. During Year 7 it is common for some pupils’ attainment to be within the 0 grade, as they build and develop the foundation knowledge and skills needed to begin progression on the 1-9 scale. As a result of this, we use suffixes from ‘a’ to ‘f’ to monitor progress.
From Grade 1 onwards, the range of suffixes used is reduced to just a, b & c.
