Student Reports

Parents receive regular written communication about the progress of their child in the form of two progress grade reports and one full report. The progress grade report is a summary report that shares the current progress the student has made in each of their subjects in relation to their target grades. It includes the following information:

  • current academic performance given as a National Curriculum level or GCSE grade
  • end of year target grade based on national baseline data and progress within the key stage
  • attitude towards work is judged on effort, organisation and behaviour (based on a scale of 1 - 4 where ‘1’ is excellent and ‘4’ is unsatisfactory)
  • quality of homework completed (based on a scale of 1 - 4).

The school also has a legal requirement from the Department for Education to provide parents with a comprehensive annual report of their child’s progress in each of the National Curriculum subjects studied. In this report the following information is communicated to parents and the student: 

  • current academic performance given as a National Curriculum level or GCSE grade
  • end of year target based on national baseline data and progress within the key stage
  • attitude towards work is judged on effort, organisation and behaviour (based on a scale of 1 - 4 where ‘1’ is excellent and ‘4’ is unsatisfactory)
  • quality of homework completed (based on a scale of 1 - 4)
  • comments on the student’s progress towards targets in each subject
  • targets to indicate how the student can make better progress in each subject area
  • a record of the student’s attendance, since the last report, outlining total number of sessions attended and flagging any unauthorised absences
  • details of arrangements for parents to discuss the report with the school.

Students at KES are encouraged to engage in tracking their own progress in each subject. They have access to their current progress level grades, end of year targets and end of key stage targets. Students review their progress at significant points in the academic year.
