Assessment - At Handsworth, pupils record at least 3 pieces of work in their books which will show progressions through a unit. Formative assessments will take place through Teacher observations and professional judgments based on class discussions, class activities and tasks set. This will be evident as children will:


  • make links in learning from previous year groups and show progression.

  • be given a safe space to reflect on questions of meaning, offering their own thoughtful and informed insights into religious and secular worldviews.

  • have a stronger awareness of the world around them and will be mindful of the beliefs of others. 

  • will feel they are valued as individuals and that their beliefs are valued and celebrated. 

  • will be able to participate in lessons even if their beliefs differ and will be given opportunities to share their similarities and/or differences.

  •  be given opportunities to promote creativity, achievement, confidence and inquisitive minds. 

  •  leave the school with a sense of belonging to a tightly knit community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.

  • to make links between their own lives and those of others in their community and in the wider world.

  • develop an understanding of other people’s cultures and ways of life.

  • extend their knowledge and understanding of religions and beliefs.

  • develop a religious vocabulary and interpret religious symbolism in a variety of forms.
