Very proud of the passionate performance by 1stXV this evening, against a skillful team. They played right up to the final whistle, but unfortunately came up second best, narrowly losing 20-21. Welsh Cup rugby at its best!

Reporting & Assessment

The purpose of the reporting system is to communicate students' achievements to themselves and their families. Reports relay clear information about the skills they have mastered or areas where they may need support.

Parents/carers receive reports at the following points in the academic year:

  Core subject interim report Full report
Year 7 January June
Year 8 January June
Year 9 January June
Year 10   February
Year 11   January
Year 12   January
Year 13   January

When considering your child’s progress, you should be aware of the following points:

  • Progress is not the same as effort.  Although there may be times when a lack of progress in a subject area can be attributed to a student not making enough effort, this is not always the case.  Sometimes students can be trying incredibly hard but for some reason they struggle to grasp the necessary understanding or skills in order to progress. 

      The attitude score is to be judged on a scale of 1 – 5 as follows:

      1  =  Very good

      2  =  Good

      3  =  Satisfactory

      4  =  Poor

      5  =  Unsatisfactory

  • Learning is not a race. Students will progress at different rates in different subject areas at different times. It is more important that students secure the basics rather than accelerating ahead when they still have fundamental gaps in their knowledge, understanding and skills. Therefore students may well remain within the same threshold for a long period of time but this does not mean that they are not making progress. 
     
  • Teachers will use their professional judgement about how students learn in a particular subject area when determining their expectations and assessing students’ attainment and progress. Their knowledge of the strengths and learning needs of individual children will inevitably increase as the academic year progresses and they have a greater range of assessment information to inform them. This may sometimes account for changes from one report to another. Our aim is always to give you the most accurate and up-to-date information that we possibly can on the evidence that we have available to us.

What should you do if you are concerned about your child’s progress?

  • In the first instance, talk to your child. Try and find out what they are finding difficult and see if there is anything you can do at home to help. 
  • If there are concerns regarding subjects or across the report you should contact your child’s Year Tutor.
  • Make sure that you take the opportunities provided to meet with your child’s subject teachers. Each year group has at least one Parents' Evening which is an opportunity for you to discuss their progress.

Feedback:

Finally, please recognise that, like all schools, our systems for assessment and reporting are still developing and there may well be changes in the future. If you wish to give feedback, please contact Mrs S Brewer (Senior Assistant Headteacher) on the school email address.
