All students’ learning is carefully monitored to ensure they are making good progress and doing their best. Teachers check and assess students’ work to give feedback and set learning targets.
Your child’s tutor will play a central role in supporting and helping your child to progress. In addition to the day-to-day contact, your child will meet with his/her tutor at least once a year to discuss and review progress. It will also provide a valuable opportunity for your child and the tutor to identify areas for improvement and set achievable targets, which can be reviewed at the next meeting or before.
Parents receive reports three times a year to keep them up to date with their child's progress, and there is at least one Parents’ Evenings each year, as well as a range of ‘Parent Club’ activities designed to actively involve parents in their child’s learning. In addition, subject staff and personal tutors will be undertaking a ‘target-setting meeting’ and reviewing progress with your child.
