Your daughter will receive 4 data reports and 1 annual report per year. The data report is categorised into 3 sections to give you a snapshot not only of your daughters progress but also of her as a learner.
Excellence and Aspire
This section of the report gives you information about your daughter’s progress and homework in each lesson. The target grade indicated is the grade that your daughter is capable of and should aspire to by the end of this year.
In KS4 students will be graded. As you may be aware we are currently in the process of transitioning from A*-C grades to a 1-9 grading system the schematic below indicates how the grades align. In KS3 students will be given a step score, this will align with their GCSE target as they move into KS4. The current grade or step tells you what your daughter is working at in each subject. Early in the academic year it is not unusual for this to be below their end of year target
Progress Towards Target
This column indicates clearly whether at her current performance level, your daughter is either above her target level, on target to achieve it or below target. If your daughter is below target then we recommend additional interventions such as afterschool classes to support her.
This grade is given by each subject referring to your daughters resilience, independence and ability to take responsibility for her own learning. The learner matrix criteria are used to award these grades
