Students are at the heart of our assessment policy. High achievement for every student is developed in an environment of challenge and support. The Clere School believes that regular and robust AfL (assessment for learning) are essential tools necessary for ensuring successful teaching and learning. Careful, regular monitoring of attainment in each subject enables targets for improvements to be set and parents to support their child’s progress. Assessment enables pupils to understand where they are in their learning and to understand what they need to do next. It provides students with the opportunity to work in partnership with the teacher, and students should expect a variety of achievements to be recognised and celebrated.
This year, we have introduced a new reporting system, which is highly effective in monitoring student progress in all areas of the curriculum. Parents will receive six reports every year, which summarise attainment and progress made in each half-term.
Each year, Parents and students are invited to a consultation evening held between teacher, students and parents to discuss the student’s work for that academic year. Please remember that it is not necessary to wait for a parents’ evening to find out information about your child’s progress. We encourage parents to contact us whenever they wish.
