  • All Year Groups have a Parents’ Consultation Evening

Progress Reports
These reports communicate student end of Key Stage target level, current attainment data and responsibility for learning data, as well as a comment about whether the student is on track to meet their end of Key Stage target level/grade or not.

Criteria for reports (Years 7 to 13)
The following information is given as guidance for staff about the information contained in reports.

1. End of Key Stage Target Grade
The TG is the grade or level that a student should aim to achieve or exceed by the end of the Key Stage, based on prior attainment data.

2. Current Level
This is the current attainment of the student; based on accurate, moderated assessments completed during or just prior to calendared assessment weeks. Copies of the assessments on which the levels are based will be clearly indicated in the student’s exercise book or assessment folders.

3. Progress Towards Target (Years 7-11)
Teachers’ prediction as to whether, based on their current performance, the student is on track to not meet/  meet or exceed their end of Key Stage TG.
