Reporting Student Progress

The aim of reporting is:

  • To inform parents and students of their progress towards predicted grades or levels at regular intervals during the year.
  • To initiate and support conversations between teaching staff, pupils and parents should a pupil not be making sufficient progress towards her targets.
  • To summarise a student’s pastoral development through attendance, work ethic and a pastoral comment.
