Reporting Arrangements

Guilsborough Academy has made significant changes to its assessment and reporting systems in light of many national changes, including changes to Key Stage 3 and the introduction of a new GCSE grading system.

Our aim is to ensure that parents and carers are kept informed about their child’s progress at school.

Key Stage 3 Progress Reports

Year 7 and Year 8 Progress Reports will report information slightly differently for EBacc subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, Languages and Humanities) and non-EBacc subjects.
For EBacc subjects there will be details of the Entry Learner Pathway, this will be a flightpath based on the student’s Key Stage 2 level. This will not change during Key Stage 3. The subject teacher will report for EBacc subjects the current Pathway the student is on, providing a + or - to indicate whether the student is towards the top of the skill set or towards the lower end. The absence of a + or - indicates the student is firmly within this pathway.
The effort score uses a 4-point scale, with 1 representing excellent effort and 4 being a cause for concern. Students who receive a 3 or 4 will most likely have had the class teacher make contact with parents to discuss a student’s effort in class. Students with low effort scores are likely to be placed on a monitoring report or other suitable intervention.
For Non-EBacc subjects a Learning Pathway will be provided for that year. This is based on the class teacher’s professional judgement on which flightpath the student should be working within based on their prior knowledge, skills and understanding. The teacher will provide details of whether the student’s progress was within, beyond or below the pathway.
The class teacher will provide ‘successes’, ‘next steps’ and possibly a ‘comment’, in the same manner as provided by EBacc subjects.
Additional information will be provided on the Academy website regarding the Programmes of Study for Key Stage 3 that will assist in understanding Flightpaths and Pathways.
