Report Colours Consultation Outcome
Thank you to all parents that responded to the “Report Colours Consultation” as part of the parent survey that we carried out in October 2015. As you can see from the chart below there was an overwhelming preference expressed to retain the present format with colour-coding of red, amber and green to indicate progress being made and individual attitude to learning. Therefore, we will retain the colour-coding with our monitoring reports.
As a guide to these colours, please refer to the following table:
||What does it mean with respect to academic progress?
||What does it mean with respect to “Attitude to Learning” (A2L)?
||Your child is performing above expectation and progressing very well. If they continue in this manner they will achieve well in Key Stage 4 & 5.
||Your child is demonstrating an excellent attitude to learning on a regular basis in lessons that will have great benefit to their progress. They will be coming to lessons equipped and engaging very well. They will also be completing both class and homework on a regular basis to a highly consistently good standard.
||Your child is performing at expected levels and progressing well. If they continue in this manner they will achieve their targets in Key Stage 4 & 5.
||Your child is demonstrating an attitude to learning that is at the level that we would expect that will have some benefit to their progress. They will be coming to lessons equipped and completing both class and homework on a regular basis to a consistently good standard.
||Unfortunately your child is not making expected progress in this subject. We will be working closely with your child and you to address any barriers there may be to progress.
||Your child is demonstrating an attitude to learning that is below the level that we would expect and will be having a negative impact on their own and others’ progress. They will be coming to lessons ill-equipped and not engaging well. They will also be failing to complete class and homework to consistently good standard.
