Understanding Student Progress
This page details the ways in which we communicate student progress with parents.
All parents will receive three reports per year. They will contain the following information:
Minimum Expected Grade (MEG) : This is a grade that each student is working towards in every subject by the time they leave the College in Year 11.
Predicted Attainment: This is based on how the student currently performs and is the actual grade/level that the teacher thinks the student will achieve by the time they leave college. It is based on recent assessments which have been completed in class.
Attitude To Learning: A grade ranging from A (above expectation to D (Significant concerns,) which shows the students’ general approach to their learning in each classroom. A descriptor for each statement appears on the student’s report
Revision and Learning: A statement which describes the students’ approach to our independent revision and Learning tasks which are set by each teacher. The statements are “above expectation, expected, below expectation or significant concerns”. A descriptor for each statement appears on the student’s report
The college reporting timetable outlines when each year group will receive their report. All our reports are sent out to parents via our “School Gateway“.
For details on how to register your email address to receive information from school gateway, please call reception 01392 204600. You can download the School Gateway app from your smart phone or search for it on your laptop. Follow the new user instructions to get started.
