News from Head of Secondary, Izabela Sloczynska

16 January 2015

This week, I am focusing on ways in which your child's progress is assessed and monitored at school. In every lesson, teachers use a number of strategies to check student understanding of the topic covered. This can take place orally through questioning of several types, discussions, and presentations. The students are often asked to complete tasks in class which indicate the depth of understanding too. In many cases the student is required to demonstrate the development of particular skills and understanding of vocabulary which is subject specific. Written tasks are set and checked. Homework is also set to consolidate learning and allow students to practice skills learned in class.

Teachers also set tests and quizzes throughout the year and keep a record of the marks every student achieves. There are also formal exams for all students in order to give each child the opportunity to work under exam conditions and to develop their own revision style.
The number of tests and quizzes varies form Year 7 to Year 13, but all students experience all of these forms of assessment throughout the school year.Teachers use an amalgamation of all of this information from class work, homework, tests and examinations to grade each student and these grades are entered every term on to tracking sheets for all subjects.

The Secondary School Team check these grades and identify students who are progressing towards targets and those who need some form of intervention in order to help them do so. Effort grades are also tracked and students rewarded for excellence in these areas. If a student is experiencing problems in any area, the teachers will talk to them about the possible reasons and help them to overcome any difficulties. Sometimes a student will be put on report to help them focus on a particular area which is impeding progress. This report is checked and signed daily by teachers, the Year Team Leader and parents.

Our aim is to make sure that all of the students at The British School Warsaw are achieving the best possible outcomes and developing the skills and knowledge necessary for life after school.


If you have any questions regarding assessment at our school, please contact me and arrange an appointment.
