At Brentwood School, we are determined to monitor your child’s progress to ensure we can set challenging targets and enable them to develop to their full potential.
Our students follow a broad and varied curriculum which allows them to develop the skills that they need for life. We recognise that key areas for development for our students are not always based around subject learning and our assessment system has been designed to ensure that we can measure the holistic progress that our students make. This means that we can consider their development across the curriculum, rather than focussing on individual subjects.
We assess student progress in the following strands:
· Numeracy and Literacy
· Life Skills and Work Skills
· Physical and Health
· Friendship and Relationships
· Understanding the World
We use B levels (Brentwood levels) to assess progress, and we record this progress using Classroom Monitor. Progress is evidenced in many different ways including through the use of photographs, videos, witness statements, accreditation and learning completed in class. We have a highly individualised approach to assessment and students are set targets that are appropriate to them and the level at which they are working.
