Reporting and Assessment

Autumn 1 Reports

All students receive a report at the beginning of October detailing how well they have started the year in each subject. Teachers report on each student’s Attitude to Learning (ATL). Attitude to Learning is the greatest indicator of success and students receive a grade for each of their subjects, based on the below criteria:

 

++

Exceptional evidence of the PRIDE values. The student shows respect for self and others by taking leadership of their learning. Their involvement is central to the learning in the classroom and beyond. The student takes on challenging tasks proactively and shows determination to achieve their absolute best. This leads to consistently excellent outcomes in class and remotely.

+

Strong evidence of the PRIDE values. The student is an active learner, showing self-respect and taking pride in their work, whilst being consistently involved in the learning process. The student shows determination to take on challenging tasks, sometimes needing encouragement. Homework is consistently completed and supports many excellent outcomes.

=

Some evidence of the PRIDE values. The student is respectful but involves themselves with the minimum effort, sometimes lacking the necessary determination to achieve their best. Homework may be inconsistent or completed to the minimum required standard. This passive learning makes truly excellent outcomes rare.

-

Little evidence of PRIDE. The student lacks respect and is not involved in their learning and does not show the determination necessary to achieve their best. Their behaviours may damage the learning of others as well. No evidence of homework or other independent learning.

 

PRIDE Reports

At the end of each term, every student receives a more complex report that evaluates how well their behaviour for learning reflects our PRIDE values (Pride, Respect, Involvement, Determination and Excellence). Students are awarded a number grade from 9 to 1, where 9 is the highest grade, for each of the following:

  • Attendance
  • Punctuality to school and class
  • Achievements
  • Attitude to Learning (ATL)

Academic Reports

All students complete centralised summative assessments twice a year in order to measure attainment and progress in each subject with the results reported home.

Year 7 to 10 complete mid-year assessments after the Christmas break which are graded as a percentage. Year 7 to 9 complete similar End of Year assessments in the Summer term, graded as a percentage.

In the Summer of Year 10, students complete their first set of mock exams in preparation for the GCSE and BTEC exams the following summer. Students are given exam grades that reflect their current attainment which are reported home. Students complete two more sets of mock exams in Year 11 at the end of the Autumn and Spring terms.

GCSE Grades from 9-1 are still relatively new. Click here to find out more about what has changed

Students in the 6th Form complete two mock exams in Year 12 and two in Year 13, each one graded with an exam grade and reported home.

 

The link between PRIDE and progress

Positive behaviours and attitudes to learning are the greatest predictors of academic success, shown by the progress outcomes for our most recent cohort of students according to their PRIDE score. Consistently, those students with the highest PRIDE scores are those that achieve the best outcomes.
