Reports and Parent consultation
We believe that it is important for you to be kept informed of your child's performance throughout the year. It allows you to keep track of their effort and progress as well as indicating their level of attainment at that particular time of the year. More importantly, opportunities to chat with the team at Mundella Primary School helps to build strong working partnerships that will always benefit the development of the pupils and the school.
From 2018 reports will be sent out at the end of each term. They will be in a format that makes it easy to track progress, effort and attainment; as well as indicating trends in other areas of school performance.
The colour system has been chosen to simplify the reading and sharing of reports with termly tracking grids for each area.
Targets are kept focussed and to a minimum during terms 1 to 5. The end of year report may have additional targets, for the year ahead, and will also include comments for Reading, Writing and Maths as well as a general comment from the teacher.
Here is the key for colour coding Attainment and Progress.
Here is an example of a termly tracker. It has been exaggerated for demonstration purposes.
This tracker shows that, although attitude to learning was good throughout the terms, progress in reading was slower in term 1 than it was in term 2 but then dropped off in terms 3 and 4. Although attainment started well, for this child, the lack of progress is having an impact upon their current level.
