Reporting

Reporting to Parents

For each year group there are key opportunities in the year when information about the achievement of your child will be reported home to you as parents/ carers. This information has been designed to keep you regularly informed about the progress being made by your child. The key reporting points:

  • Target Levels set in Autumn Term
  • Two Progress Reviews (Working at Grades)
  • An Annual Achievement and Progress Report
  • A Parents Evening

The dates for each report to parents varies by year group. Specific dates for all year groups for 2016 – 17 are listed below.

The Parent/ guardian listed as “priority 1” contact on school records (eg the parent/ carer that we would ring first if your child is ill in school) has additional access in the school app for more regular reporting of key data. By clicking on the “My students” link at the bottom of the page you can view up to date information about your child’s attendance and timetable.
