Ensuring Progress for All Students
When students start St Martin's, they will be placed on a Year 7-11 Flight Path based on their Key Stage 2 attainment. Each flight path will have differentiated levels of work set throughout Key Stage 3 and 4 to ensure that students meet, or exceed, their expected levels of progress, determined by their prior attainment.
Students are encouraged to strive for the next level of attainment, whatever their starting point, as they move towards excellence in every lesson and subject. Students should be striving to secure excellence by achieving deep knowledge within all elements of the subject area and beyond.
Progress will be measured by assessing student attainment against the expectations for his flight path, which will increase in difficulty as the pupil moves through the school. This progress will be reported to parents in the three written reports each year.
Interim and Final Reports
You will receive three reports on your daughter's attainment and progress each year. The table below shows which type of report you will receive and when it will be published.
The school will collect assessment data from your daughter's subject teachers. This will usually be based on a series of formative assessments on a regular basis and/or a summative assessment such as a recent test, project, presentation or examination.
The assessment data will give you a picture of how well your daughter is currently achieving against her target grades. These are generated based on the students prior attainment - how well he has achieved in the past.
You will receive interim reports on your daughter's progress in the Autumn and Spring term as shown on the table below.
