KS3 Progress reports:
- Reporting system has changed to reflect current thinking regarding assessment without levels. The changes we have made will help to ensure teachers make effective use of their professional skills and expertise when assessing students, the reports will be streamlined and easier for parents to understand.
- KS3 Students will have a report 3 times a year that provides information on attendance, they will also be given grades for Attitude to learning and Progress.
- The attitude to learning grade is holistic and reflects motivation, effort made in session, behaviour in class and a will to improve and better themselves.
- The Progress grade is an indicator of whether the student in on track to achieve their target grade at the end of KS4. Target grades will be set using data from Key stage 2 and from CATS testing at St Peters.
- At the end of the year students will receive a written report with details of performance in each subject area.
