…a report comprising statistics on student achievement, effort, attendance and punctuality are sent to parents each month…
These statistics are accessible from staff computers and form a useful reference point for Personal Tutors and subject teachers to ensure continuous monitoring and should a student’s performance start to drop, it gets picked up on straightaway. Poor performance on any assessment criteria may trigger a number of outcomes ranging from extra Supervised Study, Academic Review, referral to a senior member of staff, disciplinary procedures, or liaison with parents/guardians.
EPP and Mock Exam results are recorded on a database by the Study Centre Supervisor to track patterns and trends in students’ long term progress and help formulate realistic predicted grades.
All of this information is collected and collated into a half-termly report which is also sent home to parents. There are five of these each year. These reports offer the opportunity to expand on the brief monthly reports and give a detailed insight into each student’s progress in each of their subjects.
Excellent performance by a student at any level of ability is rewarded informally by Personal Tutors and staff, and formally via the monthly and half-termly reports and Grade Point Average scores published around college. Full results analysis is conducted bi-annually.
