Reports are sent home to parents at the end of Terms 2, 4 and 6.
The class teacher will write a short general comment on your child’s performance and progress as well as a comment specific to English and Maths. These comments will state whether your child is on track or not on track to make the expected progress for their age and, where appropriate, will set targets and next steps for their learning.
Children are also graded from A-D in 12 different areas linked to their learning (see below).
