Reporting and Assessment

Students progress is assessed in a variety of ways.  As well as the traditional “test”, children are assessed during group work and oral work. They also show their understanding by assessing other students work.

Parents receive regular Progress Reports throughout each key stage. These are termly or half-termly dependent on the key stage. Each year group also has at least one Parent Evening per academic year. The dates for the release of Progress Reports and Parents Evenings are available on the school website

Reports to parents include:

  • Targets of all subjects
  • Details of attainment in all subjects
  • Details of progress in each subject
  • Arrangements for discussing the report with the student’s teacher
  • The student's attendance record

Separately to the Progress Reports the results of any public examinations taken, by subject and grade, details of any vocational qualifications or credits towards any such qualifications gained are shared directly with students.

The Parental Consultation Evening allows you to speak to your child’s subject teachers. Students make appointments of around 10 minutes each with every teacher who teaches them.  There is also an opportunity to speak to the tutor and Year Leader.
