An Introduction To Your New Reports
Your new reports will contain some familiar features such as your Current Attainment Level (CAL) for each subject, which will be reported with sub-levels. Your CAL shows how well you have worked over the last term. Your CAL will be reported three times each year at Assessment Point (AP). For example, AP 7.1 is the first progress collection in Year 7, AP 7.2 is the second and AP7.3 the last. Look at your target grade to check your progress from your current levels. You should aim to improve by 2 sub-levels per year in Key Stage 3.
Effort is reported as a grade from 1 to 4, with 1 being best and 4 poorest. If you have been given grades of 3 or 4, your progress is at risk and you need to improve in order to reach your targets.
Homework is reported as a grade from 1 to 4, with 1 being best and 4 poorest. If you have been given grades of 3 or 4, you have not been completing and submitting your homework regularly. Completing homework may improve your grades and helps improve your organisational skills.
Predicted Grades are reported. These show what grade you are likely to reach at the end of the year at the current rate of progress for a Key Stage 3 report or the end of Year 11 for a Key Stage 4 report.
You will also be able to see your Key Stage 2 English and Maths levels near the top of your report.
I hope your report shows that you are well on track for hitting your targets. If there are some subjects in which you are a long way from your targets, please speak to your teachers and mentors who can support and guide you in making the necessary improvements.
