Your child’s progress in school will be monitored carefully and you will receive a full ‘Report to Parents’ once a year and a ‘Interim Report’ at two other points during the year. Pupils are encouraged to evaluate their own progress in all their school activities. On all reports, Attitude to learning will be indicated in one of four categories, Excellent, Good, Minor concerns, Major concerns.
Attainment: will be indicated by a GCSE grade or progress towards targets.
We hope that parents/guardians will also take full advantage of opportunities to be involved in their child’s education at The Corbet School. Parents/guardians will have at least one formal occasion per year to meet their child’s teachers and are welcome to contact school to arrange further discussions where necessary.
We encourage parents/guardians to take an active role in supporting their children in successfully completing homework. This can be achieved by providing a suitable environment for homework to be completed; asking the children about the work and helping where possible; taking an interest in teacher feedback on pieces of homework; downloading and activating a parent Show My Homework account where all homeworks are posted.
A weekly parent/guardian signature in the Student Planner would also emphasise the partnership between home and school. The student planner is meant to act as a two way communication between home and school so please feel free to use it.
