St Peter's is a 'Good' School!
I am delighted to inform you of the outcome of St Peter’s School’s Ofsted inspection that took place on 2nd/3rd March, the full report of which can be found at http://www.stpeters.cambs.sch.uk/page/?pid=288.
We use the WIKID scheme developed by the Association for Science Education, which puts the KS3 programme of study into a real world context.
We use both skills based assessments and end of unit tests to assess progress throughout the year. There is a formal end of year exam for both years 7 and 8 at the end of June.
Year 9 will follow the Exploring Science programme of study. This year forms a transition between WIKID and the GCSE. We will assess through both formative and summative tasks for each unit. Year 9 will complete practice assessed practicals and an end of year exam which will be used alongside the in-year assessments to identify the triple science groups and sets into Key Stage 4.
