Students will undertake three KPI assessments throughout the academic year. KPI stands for Key Performance Indicator and the results your child achieves will be communicated home to you. This will help you to understand how your child has performed academically so far during this school year. These assessments will enable your child’s teachers to receive important information about what they do and do not currently understand. This information is important to teachers as it will enable them to plan how to support each pupil to move their learning forward and maximise their progress in each subject.

The revision guides below are provided to support students in their revision for these assessments. These guides contain information on the different subjects your child will sit an assessment in, key topics to revise, as well as guidance on how to revise.
