Assessment and Reporting

We want every student to enjoy their learning in all areas of school life and acquire the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve strong qualifications. 

To let students, and their parents, know how they are doing at school, we assess learning regularly and offer feedback through lessons, homework and our reporting process.   We know that transparent and regular reporting helps improve the discussions around individual progress and achievement, as well as motivate and inspire young people to aim high and succeed. 

All students have target grades for their Key Stage and termly working grades.  The aim is for students to work towards meeting - and exceeding - their targets through high levels of commitment, effort and homework.  We report to parents regularly about this.

The culture we have developed here is one of a growth mindset, where there are no upper limits to what can be enjoyed and achieved.  Whilst we recognise that learning is not always linear, with some peaks and dips at times, we want to be able to talk about progress in honest and constructive ways.  We aim to do this regularly with students, parents and teachers; it makes our work together so much more effective.
