How we assess students:

Formal assessments in all 4 skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) occur at the end of each unit of work and students are assessed against their “flightpath” criteria.

Students are also assessed informally throughout the course.


Enrichment tasks are set at the start of each term. These can be found on Google classroom.  Students can complete tasks at their own pace and submit them on completion. Classcharts points are awarded for independent learning and creativity is encouraged.

How parents/carers can support their child:

We would encourage parents/carers to check weekly that students have been accessing the recommended language learning websites to practise topic-specific vocabulary.

Ask the students what they have learnt, ask them to teach you!
