At Park Community School we assess your child regularly in lessons to allow us to monitor their progress in relation to what we would expect them to achieve. We then adjust our lesson planning or implement interventions to ensure they are making suitable progress.
The Student Review Days take place on the first day of the academic year and just before the February half-term holiday. These are opportunities to meet to discuss your child’s targets with his/her mentor. It is also an opportunity to discuss how, together, we can better support his/her progress.
The traditional Parents’ Evening is your opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their subject teachers.
We also hold additional evenings for parents on specific topics such as how to support your child to achieve success in their examination courses. These evenings usually include a combination of presentations and master-classes.
Once a year there will be a full written report which gives an overview from each subject teacher including: a) what has been studied b) how well your son/daughter is doing and c) what they need to do to make further progress.
Each other reporting session will be a data report which will include the following information:
