A copy of the Chemistry STEPs model can be downloaded for your information.
The Academy’s Key Stage 5 curriculum has been developed following extensive consultation and development work with curriculum experts from examination boards and subject leaders from a wide range of schools and Academies from across the country.
These pages contain information about the topics that your child will be studying in each of the subject areas on their timetable, how their progress and attainment will be assessed and how the assessment will be reported upon to you.
The subject overviews are broken down into half termly overviews in order that you can easily gain an overview of what your child is learning in school at any given time.
The assessment overviews are designed to show you exactly what your child has achieved and enables you to compare this against the age related expectations for an ‘average’ child in that subject.
When you receive your child’s report you will see that they have been assessed as being on a ‘step’ for each subject. By hovering over that ‘step’ in the assessment overview spreadsheet (links on the right hand side of this webpage), a box will open up showing you exactly what your child has ‘done’ to achieve this step.
