Parents Guide to Reporting

GENERAL INFORMATION: STUDENT REPORTS IN THE SECONDARY PHASE

Progress and behaviour reports

We expect all students to apply our high performing learning ethos to their studies. Your child’s report will provide an update of their progress and commitment to their studies.

Parents will receive 3 reports per year:

  • Year 7 and 8 – November, March and July
  • Year 9 – November, February and July
  • Year 10, 12 – November, February, June
  • Year 11 and 13 – November, January and March

There will be a ‘meet the tutor event’ in November for all year groups.

There will be one parents evening per year:

  • Year 7 and 8 in May
  • Year 9 and 10 in February
  • Year 11 in January
  • Year 12 in March
  • Year 13 in January

KS 3: Year 7, 8 and 9

Behaviours for learning

We measure high performing learning through assessing the following behaviour characteristics:

  • Attitude to learning
  • Behaviour in lessons
  • Quality of classwork
  • Homework

This is an indication of not only their general learning behaviours, which include their engagement and involvement in lessons, but also their commitment and active participation in lessons. For these indicators, “Good” represents a very high standard and is our normal expectation. “Exceptional” represents behaviour that goes above and beyond our normal expectations. “Below” represents a behaviour below our normal expectation. “Insufficient” represents behaviour well below expectation that are causing serious concern.

PiXL Edge

The PiXL Edge is a framework for schools to develop and accredit in students those personal attributes essential for employability and life. Current year 8 and 9 students began the process last year, and year 7 students have been introduced to the framework this year. Once the Apprentice level has been completed, the Graduate level becomes available in year 9. The five LORIC attributes which make up the criteria for PiXL Edge are Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication.

We will report on the progress that your child is making in relation to the achievement of the Apprentice Award.

Student Progress

In July students will sit end of year exams. We will use the results of these exams to inform you whether your child is making progress in line with their potential. We will base this on your child’s performance in their KS 2 SATs exams.

KS 4 (Years 10 and 11)

Target grade

We believe our ambitious target grades are achievable as they reflect grades previously achieved by high performing students nationally.

Predicted grade

Each teacher provides an indication of the grade they believe Rimini is likely to achieve in her exam. Teacher predictions are based upon their performance to date including behaviours for learning.

The teacher also indicates how secure they believe that grade to be, according to the following descriptors:

Example Guidance

7 (secure with potential for next grade)

 

Likely to be consistently working towards the top end of a Grade 7, perhaps with some work demonstrating a Grade 8 standard. Whilst they are not consistently performing at the grade above, they are not very far away from it and have a realistic possibility of converting to a higher grade with some guidance.
7 (secure) Has shown evidence of working consistently at a Grade 7, with most work and assessments demonstrating this standard of work.

We believe our ambitious target grades are achievable as they reflect grades previously achieved by high performing students nationally.

Predicted grade

Each teacher provides an indication of the grade they believe Macy is likely to achieve in her exam. Teacher predictions are based upon their performance to date including behaviours for learning.

The teacher also indicates how secure they believe that grade to be, according to the following descriptors:

Example Guidance

B (secure with potential for next grade)

 

Likely to be consistently working towards the top end of a Grade B, perhaps with some work demonstrating a Grade A standard. Whilst they are not consistently performing at the grade above, they are not very far away from it and have a realistic possibility of converting to a higher grade with some guidance.
B (secure) Has shown evidence of working consistently at a Grade B, with most work and assessments demonstrating this standard of work.
