My Child's Progress

 

Pupil Progress Meetings 

 

Every half term, class teachers meet with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to analyse and report on the progress of all children in the class.

 

Although children do progress and achieve at different rates, we aim to ensure that all our children are moving on in their learning. Most children do - at this meeting, we identify those children who haven't made progress for any reason and decide what action to take. This might mean children working with increased support, attending booster classes or taking part in an assessed intervention.

 

The progress of these children is then monitored, with a follow-up meeting taking place a month later. If you child needs to take part in additional lessons, you will be informed by letter before the intervention starts.  

Assessment without Levels 

 

As part of the reforms to the National Curriculum, the current system of 'levels' used to report children's attainment and progress will be removed from most year groups in September 2014 and will not be replaced. 

 

This allows teachers greater flexibility in the way that they plan and assess pupils' learning. 

 

The programmes of study within the new National Curriculum set out expectations for the end of each key stage, and all maintained schools are free to develop a curriculum relevant to their own pupils that teaches this content. 

 

The curriculum must include an assessment system which enables schools to check what pupils have learned and whether they are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage, and to report regularly to parents. 

 

At St Dunstan's, we are currently introducing a new assessment system which we will share with parents at the next parents' evening.

The School Pupil Tracker allows parents to log on and see all the progress information that we have for their child. The information includes the results  of all  internal assessment tests as well as the results of formal statutory tests. In addition,  all end of year written reports are available.

 

Logon details are provided for every child twice a year, but if you have lost your information, please use the contact form below  to request a copy to be sent to you. 

 

A computer in school may be used for parents unable to access the internet at home.
