Two or three times a term, at intervals of three or four weeks, assessments are given for each pupil on the basis of their work since the last assessment was made. There are three categories of assessment: attainment, effort in written work, and classroom behaviour.
These three grades are designed to help school, pupil, and parent monitor the progress of each pupil. Parents will be able to access the assessments on the Parent Portal shortly after they are published, and will be emailed when they are ready to view. Pupils will go through the assessments with their tutor in the course of the following week. The assessment process aims to ensure that any issues or concerns are picked up and addressed quickly and should be a proactive and positive experience.
