Reporting and Monitoring
The reporting system is designed so that students and parents have a clear idea of current and projected performance in all subject areas.
- There are three reports issued home to parents throughout the year, the timing of these reports varies for each year group in order to support key events such as Key Stage 4/5 pathways evening, mock examinations or external examinations.
- Each report indicates for every subject a target grade for the end of Key stage 4 or 5, and a projected grade for the end of that course of study. Additionally, an ‘attitude to learning’ grade and an indication of the status of homework and coursework is also provided.
- One of the reports will include subject teacher comments suggesting how to improve performance and also an overview comment from the form tutor.
- Following the issue of each report students will spend time with their form tutor reviewing their progress in relation to their targets and discussing strategies to improve performance.
Annual Review Day is normally in the week just after the spring half term. This is scheduled as a mid-year consultation entitlement for each student with the form tutor. Parents are also invited to attend. The purpose of the Annual Review Day is to review student performance and set targets for the remainder of the academic year.
Parent consultation events are held throughout the year with 3 scheduled per year group. These events provide parents the opportunity to meet staff to discuss the progress being made by their son/daughter. Students are encouraged to attend these events with parents.
