Radnor House Sevenoaks' new reporting system
28th Mar 2017
Collecting and disseminating relevant and timely information about your child's progress is important for schools. As a parent you need to understand how well your child is doing across their range of subjects and highlight particular strengths or weaknesses so that these can be addressed at home or in school.
Earlier this year Radnor House Sevenoaks introduced a new reporting system which is based on the school's values.
By applying the values of Excellence, Respect, Courage and Perseverance to your child's learning habits, we are able to build up a picture of how they approach work and how well they are equipped for the rigors of later life.
In short, we tend to assume that a child's habit of mind, or behaviours for learning, lead naturally to the level of excellence they achieve in their various subjects.
For Prep children their measure of excellence is a Personalised Achievement grade which shows whether they are meeting or exceeding our expectations of them as learners. As this is a personal grade which does not take into account the class average, all children can achieve As and A*s, regardless of underlying ability, if they apply themselves in the right way.
For Senior children their achievement grade is more closely matched to their ultimate GCSE grade and is measured on a 9 to 1 scale, with 9 being the highest score achievable.
Each term families are provided with a Minimum Target Grade, which has typically been generated from a test of cognitive ability at the start of the year. You also have a Current Grade: Projected which shows their present attainment grade based on their most recent scores and homework tasks.
