New Student Assessment Guide
In 2015 the government removed National Curriculum assessment ‘levels’ from primary and secondary schools. As there is no longer a national system of levels, this gives Ivybridge the freedom to introduce its own assessment system.
Also, starting in 2017, the government has introduced new, tougher GCSEs. The new GCSEs will be graded on a scale from 9-1: Grade 9 being the highest, Grade 1 being the lowest. This is the same for all schools in the country.
