Assessment

The Progress Report:

Our Progress Reports are designed to give a clear indication about current progress in each subject and progress towards an end-of-year target. Each Progress Report provides the current grade, end-of-year target grade, engagement with learning evaluation and contact details; one Progress Report per annum contains detailed written information, written by each subject teacher about the student's progress in each specific subject.

  • All students in Years 7 to 10 receive 3 Progress Reports per annum
  • Students in Year 11 receive 2 Progress Reports plus a Mocks Results Report
  • Students in Year 12 receive 2 Progress Reports plus 2 Mocks Results Reports
  • Students in Year 13 receive 2 Progress Reports plus 1 Mocks Results Report
  • We have three progress monitoring points each year; each falling at the end of a term. At the time of each monitoring, to inform each Progress Report, relevant testing is used to give the student a grade for each subject; this appears in the Progress Report as Current Grade.
  • Engagement with learning in each subject is given an evaluation. This is important as it shares our perception of the effort and commitment a student is making in the subject.  We are committed to ensuring our students consistently work to their best ability; equally, we ask for support from parents/carers in ensuring children work to their best ability and we encourage an open dialogue between teachers and parents/carers to ensure this is the case.  Criteria for Engagement for Learning is shown below.
  • There is one written report per annum. Comments in the written report are written for the parent/carer and are diagnostic in content, providing clear information about the student’s performance in class and areas/how to improve.
  • Written comments are between 350 and 450 characters in length.
  • Progress Reports report information, as seen in the example below.

End of Year Target Grade:

Subject teachers set each student's end of year target grade, so that the grade is challenging for the student, aspirational and realistic. Teachers use Attainment 8 and Progress 8 data, CATs scores and their own evaluation of student progress in the classroom to set these targets. Targets are reviewed on a termly basis so that they remain challenging, always striving to develop each student's knowledge and skills.
