Reporting

At Abbeywood Community School, we collect student progress information from teaching staff every term. Some of this is used internally to inform our own planning and intervention but it is also shared with parents and carers at least three times each year.

Years 7, 8 and 10 receive one written report from their tutor which summarises progress across all subjects. They will also receive two short reports which highlight student progress in the form of levels of attainment and individual student targets for each subject.

Years 9 and 11 receive a written report from each subject teacher and this is to inform parents/carers about their progress. These are important as they link into the decisions students will make about their chosen Pathways (options) into Key Stage 4 or Key Stage 5. In addition, we will also send home two short reports which highlight student progress in the form of levels of attainment and individual student targets for each subject.

A brief guide to understanding levels of attainment can be downloaded by clicking on this link. Although the Government has removed the need to use levels of attainment to assess students progress at KS3, we will continue to use this recognised system for the short to medium term. This document is sent home with the first Year 7 report. For further information about reporting, please contact Mr. Iain Williams, Deputy Headteacher.

 

Parents'/Carers' Evenings 

However, we strongly believe that a 1:1 conversation with teaching and support staff is the most effective way to feedback to parents and carers and that is why we have a parents'/carers' evening every term. These are booked online and although we sometimes have a prority booking window for specific year groups, each evening is eventually opened to ALL year groups so that parents and carers can see staff as often as is necessary. Please follow this link to find out more information about booking an appointment.
