Reporting Systems

We produce two types of reports:

·          Modular Reports approximately every 7 weeks; and
·          Annual reports once a year

The Academic Year is divided into modules, each concluding with a Module Report providing information on your child’s work and progress.

Key Stage 4 Module Report – Explanatory Notes to Parents & Carers

The sections below explain the information provided in the KS4 Reports.

Teacher Assessment

This reflects the level your child has worked at during the module and is a professional prediction of the grade they will achieve at the end of Year 11 if they continue to work with the same Engagement in Learning. Grades range from 9-1 (Unclassified) in GCSE examinations and Distinction, Merit, Pass and Fail in BTEC and OCR examinations. Each grade is divided into fine grades as shown below.

 

Fine Grade

Description

  +

The upper end of the specified grade. The pupil has a secure chance of achieving this grade. The pupil could also achieve a grade higher with increased engagement in learning

  =

The pupil has a secure change of achieving this grade if they continue to engage in learning at their current level.

  -

The pupil is border-line for this grade. The pupil may achieve this grade, but only with improved engagement in learning and will need further support. There is a likelihood that the pupil may achieve the grade below

Target Grade

This is the grade that each pupil should be aiming to achieve as a final grade at the end of Year 11. It is based on the grade achieved at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) and the teacher’s assessment of the learner’s potential. It is important that pupils work hard to attain this grade in every module throughout Key Stage 4.
