Parents will receive a progress tracker three times during every academic year. This will report on students’ current attainment, effort and behaviour for learning and homework. In addition the progress tracker will also have a comment from the tutor and an annual comment from the Head of House.
Parents of Year 10 students will receive a progress tracker three times during every academic year and Year 11 parents will receive two progress trackers. This will report on students’ current attainment, effort and behaviour for learning and private study.
Our students spent the last part of the spring term undertaking assessments in each of their subjects. The purpose of these was to ascertain what the students have learned over the course of the term, including their time spent learning during lockdown. Our teaching staff are using this information to identify any gaps in knowledge and skill, enabling them to plan their lessons accordingly to address these. Based on the disruption to students’ learning as a result of Lockdown, the assessment data is first and foremost for our teaching staff and we will therefore not be publishing a spring report. We will of course send home a summer term report later this year so that you are able to see the progress your child has made over the course of the year. If you do have any questions regarding the progress of your child, please do not hesitate to contact us.
