Student reports will be issued three times during the academic year, upon completion of each cycle. They will be sent electronically to parents at the end of each cycle.  We will no longer be sending hard copies of reports home by post or via students.  Therefore, it is vital we have an up to date email address and mobile telephone number for every parent/carer.

Attitude to Learning, Behaviour and Homework

Excellent – This indicates that your child has completed all work set, both inside lessons and outside of lessons, to the very best of their ability. They will not have received any behavioral warnings within the lessons and will proactively engage in all activities available within that subject. 

Good – This indicates that your child has completed all work set, both inside lessons and outside of lessons, to the very best of their ability. They may have received up to 3 behavioral warnings within the lessons in this cycle and will proactively engage in the vast majority of activities available within that subject. 

Inconsistent – This indicates that your child has not necessarily completed all work set, both inside lessons and outside of lessons, to the very best of their ability. They may have received up to 10 behavioral warnings within the lessons in this cycle and will sometimes engage in activities available within that subject. 

Poor – This indicates that your child frequently fails to complete all work set, both inside lessons and outside of lessons, to the very best of their ability. They will have received more than 10 behavioral warnings within the lessons in this cycle. They may not engage in the the activities available within that subject. 

Indicative Grades

How are Indicative Grades Calculated?

 

Indicative Grades are calculated from your child’s performance in their end of cycle assessments. Their mark is compared to the other students in that subject and then they are ranked, in a similar fashion to the DfE and OFQUAL grade calculations for GCSEs. Grade thresholds are then used from each subject’s actual performance from the previous year, providing the most realistic indication of how your child is performing in that subject. 

 

A short video has been provided below, detailing the new report release in January 2020 (end of cycle 1). 

 

 

 

Low Grades

What does it mean if my child has low grades in a subject?

 

This simply indicates that your child may have performed poorly in the end of cycle assessment. We would advise that you:

 

  • Discuss their end of cycle assessment with them and determine whether they
    • Had an off-day (perhaps they were tired or poorly)
    • Found that cycle’s content difficult – they may need to revisit the content again to strengthen their understanding
    •  Didn’t adequately prepare for the assessment. The assessments are based on the Knowledge Organisers, did they use the collapsed homework time of assessment week to revise from their Knowledge Organiser?
  • Consider contacting their subject’s teacher (email addresses are in the students’ planners)
