It has been a busy term, Year 7 have now fully settled into school and most are starting to establish routines that will support them in their studies. We use a system called ClassCharts to record both praise of students’ positive behaviour for learning and of course, the negative side of any behaviours. This allows us to form a picture of each child’s participation and engagement in lessons. Tutors are able to see a summary report for each of their tutees so please do contact them if you have any concerns.
We have held parents’ evenings for year groups that should have provided a picture of your child’s progress subject wide. Attendance at events was positive at around 80% but I would like to see over 90% attendance so that staff are able to engage with as many parents as possible. I apologise that some recent parents’ evenings have been impacted by staff illness.
