Parents are invited to attend annual Progress Review Meetings, which take place after a full written report has been received. The focus of the meetings is the student’s progress from Key Stage 2 towards End of Year/Key Stage Targets.
Current reports and data are always available on the Parent Portal.
Full written reports are sent out as follows:
Year 10 in July
Year 9 in February
Year 8 in March
Year 7 in April
All students receive data reports termly and these are emailed to parents.
Key Stage 3 students (Years 7, 8 and 9) are set end of year targets aimed at making 2 whole levels of progress per subject over the Key Stage. The levels are sub-divided into 3 and targets are aimed at challenging the students to achieve 2 sub levels per year. Progress is monitored using termly ‘Working at Levels’ which provide a snapshot of how the student is currently working in the subject.
Key Stage 4 students (Year 10 and 11) are set GCSE targets aimed at making good progress from KS2 baseline data. For example a student achieving a level 4 at KS2 would be expected to achieve at least a C grade at GCSE, and more likely a B grade. Progress is monitored using twice termly Professional Predictors; these are differentiated GCSE grades e.g. C1,C2,C3 with C1 being secure at that grade and could achieve a B grade, C2 secure at a C grade and C3 achieving C but at risk of achieving a D grade. The professional Predictor gives an indication as to what the student is likely to achieve at GCSE if current progress is maintained.
