ASSESSMENT AND REPORTING YEARS 7 – 9 

The reporting to parents is based on targets set each year. The initial targets are set in Year 7 after taking into account the previous results of pupils as they transfer from the primary school, the Literacy tests given at the beginning of Year 7 in Ysgol Ardudwy, and the knowledge the staff have of pupils during the first few months of Year 7.  There will be a special meeting for Year 7 parents and pupils at the end of November when the targets will be presented.  There will then be reporting on the targets every half term with a full report in July. 

At the start of Years 8 and 9 new targets will be set for that year. An interim progress report, a one page summary, will be produced every half term with a more detailed full report with a page for each subject produced once a year.

If pupil has made excellent progress and has reached the target before the end of the year a new target will be set at that time.

 A pupil should make progress which relates to at least half an attainment level each year.

YEAR 10 & 11 MENTORING SCHEME 

The School has adopted a special Mentoring Scheme in Years 10 and 11 in order for pupils to receive more regular feedback on their progress. Parents too will also receive more frequent reports and have more regular direct contact with the school. 

Every pupil will have a personal Mentor who will assist the pupil over the two years, with regular interviews so that advice can be given as necessary and any problems can be dealt with swiftly as they arise. An assessment against the personal targets of the pupil will be made every 5/6 weeks and there will be an interview with the Mentor straight after the assessment. 

The Mentor will also contact parents after the assessment every 5/6 weeks and parents will have to provide a daytime contact telephone number to facilitate this. 

There is an important meeting for parents and pupils in Year 10 in September to launch the scheme when a contract will be signed which sets out the commitment and responsibilities of the school, the pupil and the parents. The personal targets of each pupil will be presented at this meeting.
