Progress Judgment (Growth)

Our teachers use ‘benchmark data’ to decide how well your child is making progress.  When making a decision, we consider how your child compares to how all students perform nationally.

High (=100%) Your child is making better progress than expected
Good (=80%) Your child is making good progress, in line with our expectations
V Variable (=60%)

Your child is making progress, but not always consistentlyand overall progress is lower than expected

L Low (=30%) Your child is making less progress than we would expect
N None (=0%) Your child has made very little or no progress since the last report
Attitude to Classroom Learning (Courage)

Classrooms, art rooms, workshops, labs, computer rooms, gym, field…wherever your child is learning in school, this is how we let you know how much focus and effort they are putting in!

H

High (=100%)

  • All work is completed to a high standard
  • Your child takes risks in the classroom with extra or more difficult work sometimes attempted.
  • Your child thrives on challenge and learns from their mistakes
  • They are enthusiastic about their work, and use teachers’ feedback carefully to help them improve.

G

Good (=80%)

  • All work is completed thoroughly, they never shy away from challenges and do their best
  • They are hard-working and they act on the feedback teachers give

V

  • Your child usually completes work and focuses, but not always
  • Sometimes they act on feedback to improve their work

L

Low (=30%): 

  • Your child often does not complete work, and is reluctant to engage in learning and class discussion.

N

  • Your child is not engaged in learning
  • Very little work is completed and little learning takes place
  • We have serious concerns about attitude, behaviour or attendance
Attitude to Independent Learning (Enquiry)

It’s not just the homework we set…it’s everything your child does outside of school to make the best progress they can, through additional learning and practising skills. The more curious, independent and self-motivated they become, the more successful they can be now and in the future.

  • Your child completes all their homework to the highest standard, and has great independent learning skills
  • They are always curious and use their own time outside the school day to participate in additional learning and practice
