Reports

Reports at Archbishop’s work within Government guidelines in terms of timing, parental response and information to parents. Reports are, however, too important to restrict to a simple enactment of Government policy. The partnership between parents, students and staff is one of the central tenets of our mission statement and reports are a vital way through which that partnership is brought into being. Reports are also one of the key means through which the reputation of the school as a caring institution is transmitted to parents and students.

Full reports are issued to each student annually. Each year group is also issued with two Interim Reports. All interim and full report dates are in the Calendar, and are timed to tie in with key internal assessments, external examinations or key events.

Target setting

Year 7 and 8 – students are set a target range (1-3, 4-6, 7-9) using ALPS which is based on prior attainment. Teachers
assess the progress that students are making towards their range throughout these two years.

Year 9 – students are set one target grade using ALPS and FFT in all subjects studied, which is based on prior attainment. Teachers assess the progress that students are making towards their target in this year.

Year 10 and 11 – students are set one target grade using ALPS and FFT in all subjects studied, which is based on prior attainment. Teachers track the students ‘most likely’ grade over the two years, which is based on professional judgment & assessments

Year 12 and 13 – students are set one target grade using ALPS in all subjects studied, which is based on prior attainment. Teachers track the students ‘most likely’ grade over the two years, which is based on professional judgment & assessments.

For each subject report there are teacher judgments given for effort, homework and behaviour.

Assessments

Knowledge and skills based assessments are built into SOWs alongside end of year assessments (Yr7-9) and mock examinations (Yr10-Yr13) in order to build resilience and measure the impact of the curriculum.
