December 2015 Reports

Sixth Form Reports
For each subject, the report will contain a current grade, predicted grade, target grade and a descriptor to describe each student’s attitude to learning, the extent to which they meet deadlines and their independence in learning.

Year 11 Reports
For each subject, the report will contain a current grade, a predicted grade for the end of Year 11, a target grade for the end of Year 11, effort and a comment.
The current grade is based on the level of work currently being produced by the student. This may be higher or lower than the overall predicted grade for the subject as some students are stronger or weaker on different aspects of a course.

Year 10 Reports
For each subject, the report will contain a current grade, a predicted grade for the end of Year 11, a target grade for the end of Year 11 and effort. For English and maths, numbers on the 9-1 scale will be reported as students will sit the new GCSEs in these subjects.
The current grade is based on the level of work currently being produced by the student. This may be higher or lower than the overall predicted grade for the subject as some students are stronger or weaker on different aspects of a course.

Year 9 Reports
For each subject, the report will contain current grade, target for the end of Year 9 and effort. This is a settling in report at the beginning of the key stage 4 course. For maths and English, numbers on the 9-1 scale will be reported. Next year, when your son/daughter is in Year 10, other subjects will also be reported on the 9-1 scale.










Key Stage 3 Reports
Owing to recent Government initiatives, the way Gosford Hill School assesses students at Key Stage Three has changed considerably. The National Curriculum Levels used at primary school are no longer used at Key Stage Three. Instead students are taught using a Mastery Curriculum.
Depending on the grade your son/daughter achieved in their Year 6 SATs, they will be allocated onto a flight path, as shown in the table below:

Flightpath Name KS2 Average Level between English and Maths
Below a flight path Below level 3
Alpha Between 3a and 3c
Beta Between 4a and 4c
Gamma 5b and 5c
Delta 5a or above

 

 

 

 

 

 

When students are assessed within their flight path, they will be given a Mastery Curriculum statement of Emerging, Developing, Securing or Mastering. Please see below for more information:

  • Emerging (beginning to understand the knowledge and develop skills)
  • Developing (have started to engage with the knowledge and develop skills)
  • Securing (are secure in the knowledge and have developed the necessary skills at this time)
  • Mastering (are secure in the knowledge and have developed the necessary skills for the course and will not regress in later years)

The target is for all students to be at least securing in each subject by the end of the year. Please be aware that English and maths will each have a separate flight path. For all other subjects, the flight path is the same, based on the average of English and maths.
Each report will give the flight path, Mastery Curriculum statement and effort for each subject.
The reports for each year group are due out just before Christmas.
If you have any queries, please contact me about reports or Mr O’Regan for queries about flight paths.

Mrs J Fairchild – Assistant Headteacher
