If you would like to see more information on the reports, please see the links below.  Examples of blank reports are also available below.

Reports will be posted out to parents and carers.

On top of these reports there will be termly parents evenings.  These will be arranged by your child's class teacher.  You will receive a phone call/text to arrange these.

FAQs

WHY IS THE READING AGE DIFFERENT FROM MY CHILD’S ACTUAL AGE?

  • If the reading age shown is lower than your child’s actual age, this means they find it easier to read books for children younger than themselves and harder to read books written for their age group and older.

  • On the other hand, if the reading age shown is higher than their actual age, this means they are a confident reader; who is able to read texts written for someone older than they are.

  • Our aim is for most pupils to have a reading age that matches their actual age.

WHY ARE SOME OF THE BOXES BLANK, HAVE AN X IN THEM, OR ARE GREY?

There are a number of possible reasons for this.

  • Firstly, the pupil may be new to the school and there isn’t enough evidence in their classwork and homework to give an A2L grade.

  • Another reason could be the subject teacher might be on long-term absence and they are not available to do the report.

  • Furthermore, COVID-19 has meant more staff absences than normal and so this has meant some staff have been unavailable to complete their class’s reports.

  • Equally, a child might have been absent from that lesson for a significant period of time due to illness or COVID-19. Consequently, this means there is insufficient evidence at the time of doing the report available to assess the pupil’s progress.
