The school reports progress to parents formally in three ways:
In the Autumn and Spring parents have an opportunity to have a 5 minute slot to discuss academic progress and pastoral development with class teachers. It is a crucial meeting to discuss attainment and to focus on targets moving forward.
In the summer term you will receive a written report which charts academic attainment and gives a summary of your child’s progress throughout the year. There will be a written report by the child, the class teacher and the headteacher. Written feedback from parents is encouraged.
From Year 2 your child will also receive a grade card five times a year which shows effort and attainment in reading, writing and maths. The following criteria is used:
B Works hard
C Makes some effort
D Poor effort
Attainment (for information about the national standard please see the assessment page)
0 Working below the national standard
1 Working towards the expected standard.
2 Working at the expected standard.
3 Working at greater depth.
Parents are always welcome to have an informal conversation with staff at the beginning or end of each day or make an appointment for a longer meeting at a mutually convenient time.
