Assessment & Reporting

Reports will be sent to parents at three points during the academic year.

All reports will include the following information:

  • Authorised absences (half day sessions).
  • Unauthorised absences (half day sessions).
  • Lates
  • Achievement points.
  • Behaviour points
  • Latest attainment information, expressed as a numerical level or predicted grade *
  • An “Attitude to Achieve” level
  • Target levels or grades. *

During the course of the academic year, successive reports will build upon one another to provide an overview of progress from one reporting period to the next. In this way, parents/carers will have a clear understanding of those subjects where good progress is being made, as well as those in which this is not the case.

One of the three reports will be a “full report”. As well as the information outlined above, this will also include comments from your child’s form tutor as well as one of the academy’s senior leaders.

As well as reports, we will continue to offer two parents’ evenings per year group to provide opportunities for parents to make direct contact with subject teachers in order to discuss progress.

You are urged to attend both of these evenings. Our parents’ evening attendance data shows that there is a very clear link between student progress and parents’ direct contact with the academy on such occasions.

Wishing the best of luck to any of our ex-students collecting A Level results tomorrow. We’d love to know where you are off to next!

Just WOW! Working with @ArmthorpeDN3 and their EA from @nextofficial has been a real pleasure. Students have designed a sofa to fit a brief, presented to experts at NEXT and visted the site to see the winning design be made. #CareersEducation at it's best! #EANbestbits @CareerEnt https://t.co/JnNfXEzoXE

Wishing staff & students a wonderful summer break. We’re looking forward to seeing you in September, refreshed & ready for a new academic year @ArmthorpeDN3 @BuileHAcademy @EllesmerePark @heworthgrange @MoorsideHigh @thornhill_uk @WSPost @WyvernAcademy
