Progress Reviews and Profiles
We aim to provide you with useful information about your daughter’s progress during her school career, both through written feedback and online using our parents’ portal.
At the start of key stage 3 and key stage 4, students will be given a target level/grade, based on Fischer Family Trust indicators and detailed assessments. This is the minimum level/grade we expect your daughter to achieve by the end of the key stage.
You will be told what your daughter’s target levels/grades are.
At the start of year 7 we will set an end of Yr. 7 and end of Yr. 8 target that your daughter will work towards in all her subjects. The targets are set using the full range of teacher assessment tools and nationally standardised formal testing, alongside any information we have received from her Primary School as an indicator of her expected progress. You will be informed of both the baseline assessments and your daughter’s target grades.
Throughout Yr.7 and Yr. 8 you will receive a half termly summary of your daughter’s current working levels and commitment to learning in English, Maths and Science and a termly summary in all of her other subject areas. This summary can be viewed both as a printed record and online using our parent portal. The summary will be take the form of a National Curriculum level from 3 to 7 with a sub-level of a, b and c, where a is the highest. Her commitment to learning will be reported as a number 1, 2, 3 or 4 where:
· 1 = Outstanding commitment to learning
· 2 = Good commitment to learning
· 3 = Requires improvement
· 4 = Inadequate
We would encourage parents to make contact with the school to speak to your daughter’s subject teachers if you notice she has a ‘3’ or below in her commitment to learning in a particular subject area.
In years 9, 10 and 11 you will receive a termly summary in all of your daughter’s core and GCSE options subjects. This will take the form of a ‘Projected Grade’ which is the grade we believe your daughter will achieve if she continues working at her current rate and maintains her commitment to learning.
Once, each year you will also receive a ‘Student Profile’ which in addition to your daughter’s progress data, will also have specific achievements and specific action points.
In Years 10 and 11 the progress review will show attainment by current GCSE grade which may be based on coursework assignments, classwork, modular exam results or internal exam results.
We will also put her target levels/grades on this sheet so you can see how well she is progressing.
Each year you will also receive a profile which will give you information about your daughter’s attainment in each subject as well as comments by her teachers and tutor as to how she is working and how she can improve her learning.
You will be invited to a Parents Evening each year to discuss your daughter’s progress with her subject teachers and a Partners in Learning Day where you can discuss her school performance with her tutor.
From September 2011, progress reports for our students will be available online using the school’s “Managed Learning Environment”. Further information about this new system will be published following a successful trial.
