Assessment and Reporting
Years 7 & 8
In Year 7 and Year 8 our reporting system looks at key attributes identified by each subject area. Students will be identified as making expected progress, exceptional progress or whether there are concerns with their progress. The progress towards that attribute is judged by the teacher based on their professional judgement – encompassing the performance of their classwork, assessments and homework.
The progress monitoring report will also include information on their approach to learning, their employment of thinking hard skills and their oracy skills. These reports are published twice a year.
Progress Monitoring Reports provide the Target Grade, Projected Grade and Approach to Learning grade for your child in each of the subjects they study at Denmark Road.
The Target Grade is based on external data estimates, teacher challenge and expected progress from KS2 grades or from GCSE grades for students in Denmark Road Sixth Form.
The Projected Grade is based on the subject teacher's assessment, feedback, professional judgement and the class performance of your child. It is the grade that the subject teacher believes your child will achieve at the end of their GCSE or A Level qualification.
These reports are published three times a year.
Once each academic year your child will receive a Tutor Report alongside their Progress Monitoring. This will give an overview of your child's achievements, strengths and areas to develop from the perspective of the tutor, it will cover both academic and pastoral information.
