At Royds we like to give parents and carers regular updates on their child’s progress. In addition to parents’ evening, students receive at least three reports per year.
We set our students challenging targets that are intended to push them to their best of their ability. Reports will help families understand the progress that students are making towards their targets. In addition to this, they will also highlight areas of concerns that staff may have. There have been many government changes to how progress is reported and indeed the grades used. These changes are being phased in and so the effect is different for different year groups.
As well as giving information on attendance, the number of reward credits or sanctions a student has received for poor behaviour, they will also give information on a student’s Behaviour for Learning (see attachment). This is about a student’s effort and engagement with their learning and is about encouraging students to be positive, self-motivated and responsible learners.
If you have any areas of concern, first contact your child’s Form Tutor. Following this, speak to your child’s Year Leader.
