Assessment

Progress Reports

At Carr Manor Community School, we believe effective communication about progress is crucial to our team ethos, so at the end of each half term parents and carers will receive a paper copy of their child’s progress report.

As pupils are assessed throughout the year, this report will set out the following information for each subject they study:

  • How much progress they have made
  • How much effort they are putting into their lessons and Flexible Learning opportunities
  • How resilient they are when facing challenges
  • The level of independence they show

In addition, other data will be provided on the progress report as it becomes available, including examination results, reading age scores, Flexible Learning project scores, and teacher assessments.

As part of our commitment to being partners in learning, the Progress Report is discussed by each child and their coach and they set targets together for the following half term. The content of the report also forms the basis for conversations at Meet Your Coach Days.

Good progress is also rewarded at the end of each full term, with assemblies celebrating success. Certificates are presented to pupils demonstrating outstanding Character for Learning attributes such as confidence, resilience, and motivation. Recognition is also given for 100% attendance.

Age-related expectations (Year 7 and 8 assessment)

Twice each year, pupils in Year 7 and Year 8 will receive an assessment report following midterm and final examinations. These detailed reports highlight strengths and areas for improvement in each subject. For more information, click here.
