The Reporting System
The reporting system is designed so that students and parents have a clear idea of the individual student’s potential, where they are in their learning and what they need to do to achieve their potential. Key points are:
• There are three reports issued home to parents throughout the year
• The timing of the reports varies for each year group in order to support key events such as Key Stage 4 or Key Stage 5 choices
• Each report indicates for every subject a target grade, a ‘currently working at this level’ grade, an ‘attitude to learning’ grade and an indication of the status of homework and coursework.
• One of the reports will include subject teacher comments suggesting how to improve performance. One report also includes a comment on performance 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 secure strategy for student improvement in the remainder of the year, and to guarantee personal guidance counselling for each student.
