Your child’s progress in school will be monitored carefully by the tutor and the Learning Manager 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 and take an active part in the compilation of their report. On all reports, overall effort will be indicated in one of four categories, Excellent Effort, Good Effort, Minor Concerns, and Major Concerns.
Attainment will be indicated by a grade or as a National Curriculum Level. Year 7 will follow a new assessment system form September 2016. Pupils will be given a banded GCSE target Launch (1 to 3), Developing (4 to 6), Mastery (7 to 9).
We hope that parents will also take full advantage of opportunities to be involved with this process. Whilst children are at the Corbet School, parents will have at least yearly formal opportunities to meet their teachers but are, of course, most welcome to make appointments to meet with them at other times as is felt necessary.
Parents can help their children successfully complete their homework by providing a suitable environment in which it can be tackled and by looking at finished assignments – a signature in the Student Planner when this is achieved would 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.
