Assessment and Reporting arrangements for Citizenship
Schools should continue to assess and record pupil attainment in Citizenship at the end of key stage 3. This means assessment should be a planned part of Citizenship teaching and learning and pupils should recieve regular feedback on how they are doing in the subject.
Schools should also provide a brief account of each individual child's attainment in annual reports to parents for all pupils aged 11 to 16.
At key stage 4 many schools use the GCSE Citizenship Studies qualification to recognise pupil attainment and achievements.
Further guidance is provided in the ACT briefing, 'Assessing Citizenship'.
