Kite Assessment


At Mytchett, along with the other Kite Academy Trust academies, we use the Kite planning and assessment tracking system, the KAT. This system takes the whole child into account including their attendance, attitude to learning, rewards and academic progress.

We have an annual workshop, usually in September,  for families, either in person or remotely,  to introduce the Kite Assessment Tracking system to our families. This is targeted at all our Year one families and any family new to our academy, who would be unfamiliar with the system.

Please also follow the below links to view the ./x assessment sheets that are being used for Reading, Writing, Maths and Science. These sheets indicate the expectations set from the National Curriculum. You will notice that these sheets are titled with a stage, the stage correlates to the year group. E.g. stage 1 – Year 1.

You will be given a personalised copy of these for your child at Parents’ Evening, Pupil Mentoring Meetings and with each report.
