Knowing how well your daughter/son is progressing towards their targets at school is vital . We aim to ensure all parents are fully informed of achievement at each Key Stage.
In Years 7-9, parents will receive a full report on academic progress three times a year - the report will include the targets your daughter is working towards and their current progress towards this target. It will also include a comment on her attitude to learning, give an area for praise and a target for improvement. At Key Stage Three, students work towards age related expectations. These are explained in the diagram below
Please note that your daughter's first Year 7 report will differ in that it will be a report the Key Stage Two results, on which targets are based, and the Cognitive Ability Tests your daughter will have taken within the first few weeks at St Albans Girls' School.
A typical Key Stage 3 sample report is shown below:
In Years 10-13, parents will receive four reports a year - the report will include the A Level/ GCSE targets your son/daughter is working towards and their Most Likely Outcome (MLO). The MLO is the grade the teacher expects your son/daughter to achieve if she continues to work at her current rate until the end of her 2/3 year A Level/GCSE course. Reports in the Spring and Summer Terms will report on the results of Mock Examinations taken. The report will also include a comment on his/her attitude to learning, give an area for praise and a target for improvement.
All reports will also state your son/daughters current attendance, unauthorised absence, House Points and Behaviour Points. If your son/daughter has Exam Access Arrangements these will be stated on his/her report. Examples of reports at each key stage are attached. A typical Key Stage Four report is shown below:
