Shiplake has a regular reporting cycle, comprising half-termly Progress Reviews and end of term Full Reports. These, together with the cycle of Parents’ Conferences and regular communications from Tutors, provide staff, parents and pupils with academic progress updates.
It is imperative that we make pupils aware of their progress and that we engage in discussion with individual pupils about how their potential can be fulfilled. Pupils will also write a reflective Pupil Comment for every Progress Review.
Teachers provide a judgement of each pupil using the following report descriptors. Room for Improvement must be seen as a development opportunity for pupils and should not be viewed negatively.
