Student Reports

Three reports will be sent home each academic year. It is our aim to keep parents/carers fully informed about the progress a child is making across the whole range of subjects he/she studies and we hope that you will feel informed and encouraged to have an ongoing discussion about progress and achievement with your child and ourselves. In years 7 to 10 the first two reports are interim reports and the summer report will offer more detail. In year 11 students will receive two reports, a full report in both autumn and winter terms.

READING YOUR CHILD’S REPORT:


"Attitude to Learning" comments

Within the interim report there is also a brief “Attitude to Learning” comment which helps you to see your child’s approach to learning in a particular subject. The full school report provides a similar but more detailed comment in relation to your child’s “Attitude to Learning”. A report which contains a majority of “outstanding” or “good” Attitude to Learning comments should be commended but a report that contains too many negative statements about Attitude to Learning will be challenged by the school and hopefully parents/carers.

Grades within reports

Your child has been given targets in each subject to be achieved by the end of the year or by the end of the Key Stage. Based on primary school Key Stage 2 data, the targets reflect the progress that is made by students nationally from the same starting point. Each subject has also given your child a personal "Flightpath” which gives a clear visual representation of the progress he/she must make each term to meet their end of year / Key Stage target. These target grades are aspirational but we are very clear that there should be no ceiling to achievement. Depending on the subject, a significant proportion of students nationally make well above expected progress.

For each subject on the report your child has been given a "Target Grade (End of Year)", "Target Grade (Term 1,2 or 3)" and a “Present Level or Grade”. The present level or grade takes into account his/her current attitude to learning, work rate, approach to homework, class work, test results and other indicators that the teacher might choose to use. If your child is on target or above there should be no cause for concern but a present level/grade that is below target may require intervention from the school and hopefully parents/carers. When considering your child's performance please consider the colour of the 'present grade' box initially, and then compare the grade given to the "Target Grade (Term 1,2 or 3)" to gain a clearer insight into the extent your child is above or below target. Please also remember that fractions of grades increase in multiples of 0.2.

In all cases, grades on reports are based around the national DfE grading system applicable to the year in which your child will finish Key Stage 4 and hence the grades your child will be awarded when sitting GCSEs.
