Hi, I am new to a Head of English role in a middle school. Currently, we don't appear to have anything in place to assess the reading attainment/progress of our Y7 pupils, other than the GL Assessment they sit in September and July. Last year, the school tried administering the AQA Y7 pilot paper but found that it was such a huge jump from KS2 that the pupils found it too difficult. I was just wondering what else people used in their schools to assess reading amongst KS3 pupils. Any guidance would be really appreciated! Many thanks!
