Assessment is for Learning has been a major priority and development in schools over the past eight years or so. As far as St Peter the Apostle High School is concerned, Assessment is for Learning has been central to our Learning & Teaching policies and reviews since the school opened. Assessment is for Learning is also central to HGIOS and Journey to Excellence and is, therefore, of great importance regarding any WDC and / or HMIe inspection. The development of Assessment is for Learningstrategies and techniques goes hand in hand with the entire Curriculum for Excellence programme. It is therefore crucial that we make every effort to ensure that our practice meets all these requirements. Assessment touches every aspect of effective learning and teaching and must not be placed in its own separate box: it permeates the entire curriculum.
