Assessment at Walton-le-Dale

For the last 12 months we have been carefully considering the way in which we assess our students' progress and report to parents & carers.  We have considered national best practice and looked to integrate it with the ethos of our school.  In the documents below you will find the "Guide to Assessment for Parents and Carers" - please read and do not hesitate to contact us at school if you have any questions.
