Assessment

Assessment

At BBIS we have developed a rich, creative and engaging curriculum for our students, with our aim being that our children enjoy school as well as developing as learners and individuals.

It is our responsibility, and each child’s entitlement, that their development is assessed, tracked and this information be used to inform teaching as well the families/guardians for each of our children.

Below you will see an outline of the assessment carried out at BBIS. Assessment is a continuous process and is carried out by our staff on an on-going basis, in the form of effective Assessment for Learning (Afl), as well as summative tests.
