Students’ progress reports are issued once per term for each year group. Reports will usually be generated in Go4Schools and notifications will be sent via ParentPay.
Key Stage 3
The progress reports will show the students’ expected (group average) percentage score for each subject, as well as their own current percentage scores. The ‘Expected Score Check’ column will confirm whether the pupil’s current percentage score is::
Above expected (above the expected score)
Met expected (meeting the expected score)
Below expected (below the expected score)
*Some students may be ‘Well below …’ or ‘Well above …’ in a subject.
There is also a single Attitude to Learning score for each subject. These scores reflect the extent to which your child has met with their teachers’ expectations. A full explanation of these Attitude to Learning scores can be found on the website.
The ‘Attendance Information’ section states your child’s current session percentage attendance, as well as counts of any authorised and unauthorised absences (accurate on the date of printing). The attendance pie chart (see below) displays this information visually. Finally, the ‘Behaviour Information’ section lists the number of positive XP and negative Prep / R&R sessions your child has accrued so far this academic year.
In Year 7, the first progress report will be accompanied by a 'TUTOR Time' section, which will include comments written by each student’s progress tutor, summarising how well they have settled in at Kingsmead during the first term.
Before making the choices for their ‘Mastery’ curriculum, Year 8 students will receive a ‘Subject Report’ with their Spring Progress Report. The report will include comments from each of their subject teachers, summarising their progress and achievements in each subject.
Year 7 students will also receive a full ‘Subject Report’ with their Summer Progress Report.
