Every Year 8 pupil is offered a Personalised Learning Journey, as he/she proceeds through Key Stage Three at St Patrick’s College.

* Each year Four formal assessments are undertaken by every pupil in each subject.

* These are marked by the subject teacher and moderated within each area of study.

* The results are placed against each pupil’s personalised target.

* These targets are gained from online testing.

* This enables every pupil to be challenged to reach his/her potential target.

* Class averages will be available so that parents can chart their son/daughter against the class.

* Twice a year, parents will receive a summary copy of the results of the Formal Assessments.

* Each summer, parents will receive a full subject teacher report.

* This provides a ‘partnership of learning’ to optimise the achievements of every boy and girl.
