Assessment at Key Stage 3
Students will experience two Knowledge Weeks in each year. They will be assessed on their understanding of the key knowledge and their practical application of it. The understanding accounts for 50% of their grades and the practical application accounts for the other 50%.
|Key Stage 4||
The student will study Pearson Edexcel Art and Design working within the title Art, Craft and Design. The Pearson Edexcel in Art and Design consists of two internally assessed and externally moderated components.
Component 1: Personal Portfolio (Titles/themes for each project are internally set by the department)
Component 2: Externally Set Assignment. (Title/theme set by exam board)
Component 1 is assessed on 120 guided learning hours. Students produce a Personal Portfolio which is divided into three themed projects worth 60% of the final grade.
Component 2 is an externally Set Assignment. Students will complete exam preparatory work in lessons working to meet the same assessment criteria as set in component 1. They will then produce a personal outcome or outcomes under exam conditions within 10 hours.
Each component is assessed against the same four assessment objectives. All work is internally set and is internally marked. A sample of work is then externally moderated by a visiting moderator at the end of Year 11. Students will be awarded with one GCSE 1-9 grades.
Each student will have four lessons of Art per fortnight (typically, two lessons per week)
