ASSESSMENT & REPORTING
The interest and involvement of people at home can make all the difference in a child’s education, and we strive to maintain an excellent level of communication between school and home.
You can access the latest information on your child’s progress via the Parent App, which can be downloaded onto your smartphone or tablet.
This app will show your child’s attendance at each lesson, achievement points and behaviour marks in real time. You will also be able to see how your child is getting on at key points during the year: this data will include a progress target grade, current working grade and attitude to learning grade for each subject.
During the year, you will be invited to attend a Parents’ Evening to discuss your child’s progress, and you can book appointments online directly with the teachers you wish to see. Please note that we no longer produce written reports. Additional information evenings are held for parents of children in Years 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12, and an options evening is held for children in Years 8 and 9.

You might also find it useful to refer to this glossary (pdf) which explains some of the terms that are often used when talking about the education system, but which might not always be very clear.
