GSO Test


As you have been made aware, since September 2015 all pupils are no longer being taught and assessed against traditional levels. The National Curriculum has changed and it is no longer possible to use levels, this has given us a great opportunity to create an assessment framework that is right for our pupils. 

At St. Edward’s Royal Free Middle School we are teaching a knowledge led curriculum that is based on the new National Curriculum and aims for “age expected” learning. Students will be assessed against objectives that have been mapped so that the vast majority of pupils are meeting or exceeding age expected learning which will allow them to be successful at St. Edward’s RF and beyond.

As part of this change, parents will receive reports 3 times a year that show whether their child is “Secure” in age expected learning and which objectives they haven’t met. Parents will receive these reports in: December, March and July.

Pupils will be assessed against the following phases: 




Phase 2

Phase 3

Phase 4

Phase 5
