At SDCC reports are sent home three times a year, electronically where possible, to parents and carers as well as a paper version for students. Further information on the assessment procedures and the learning outcomes for each subject are provided through the links on this page.
The SDCC Curriculum on a Page and Assessment Criteria for years 7 and 8 (KS3) have a section for each subject giving explicit criteria for the learning expectations and outcomes for the year. These will give a reference point to the student’s end of year forecast grades.
At KS4 (Years 9 – 11) students are working towards the GCSE criteria which uses the 9 – 1 grading system, 9 being the highest grade.
