Reporting progress to parents and students (KS4)

We report 3 times per year in Year 9 & Year 10 and four times per year in Year 11. When reporting on a student’s progress towards their target, teachers will record four grades. Their Projected Grade is an estimate of the grade that the student is likely to achieve taking into account his/her expected progress and increasing maturity over the remainder of the course. As at KS3, teachers also report Behaviour and Attitude to Learning.
