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 receive three short reports which summarises progress across all subjects, in the form of expected progress, effort and individual student targets for each subject where a student is not making expected progress.
Years 9 – 11 also receive three summary progress reports. As with younger year groups, the reports highlight student progress, predicted outcomes, aspirational target grades and effort in each subject. 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.
For further information about reporting, please contact Mr Ben Dilley, Senior Deputy Headteacher.
