My Child At School
This is a secure website where you are able to view information about your child’s school day.
There is a lot of information available for you to see, such as:
• Academy term dates – you can avoid clashes when booking holidays.
• Your child’s attendance for morning and afternoon registrations. (For Year 12 & 13 this is by lesson) – you will always know that your child is attending school.
• Your child’s timetable of lessons for each day – you can be prepared for the last minute requests for clean PE kit, cooking ingredients etc.
• House points – the number of rewards that your child has gained for their good behaviour, work, uniform etc.
• The half term reports on your child’s progress in each subject. (Please follow this link for some information to help you to understand these reports.)
Parents of students in Year 7, 8 and 12 have already received log on information for this website and have viewed their child’s autumn report.
Log on details will shortly be sent to the parents of all students and the end of autumn term reports will be available via this site. A letter will be sent with your child and a message will appear on the academy’s website to let you know when the reports are available to view.
If you would prefer to receive a paper copy of your child’s report, simply contact the academy and let us know.
Understanding your child’s Key Stage 3 report.
Each half term your child’s teachers will assess the progress made by each student in their subject as well as giving a grade for their effort and behaviour for learning. This is complied into a report that will inform you of how well your child is progressing in school.
In Key Stage 3 (Year 7 & 8 ) the targets and assessments are recorded as a sublevel. This can be confusing so here is a guide to the meaning of levels and sublevels.
A level is recorded as a number from 1 to 8. The target level your child is given will have been decided by looking at the level they achieved at the end of Key Stage 2 (Junior school) and adding to that the number of levels they should move up by during the term.
For example if George achieved a Level 3 in English at the end of Year 6, he will have a target of Level 4 to achieve by the end of Year 7 and Level 5 by the end of Year 8.
Teachers regularly assess students by assigning the appropriate Level to selected pieces of work. Over a term these are used to assign a sublevel as well as a level. This tells you how secure your child is at that Level. Sublevels are written as letters, after the level, and can be interpreted as follows:
Sublevel a (e.g. 4a) is often interpreted as a secure level 4. It means that the child is almost always achieving a Level 4 in his work, rarely achieves a Level 3 and may sometimes achieve a Level 5.
A grade of 4a means your child is secure at that level and is moving towards the next level up.
Sublevel b (e.g. 4b) means that the child is often achieving a Level 4 but may sometimes achieve Level 3 and may even occasionally achieve a Level 5.
A grade of 4b means that your child needs to make further progress within level 4 before he moves up to the next level.
Sublevel c (e.g. 4c) can be interpreted as a weak Level 4 and means that the child is often achieving Level 4 but is also sometimes achieving Level 3 and rarely achieves Level 5.
A grade of 4c means that your child has just reached that level and needs to make more progress to become secure at that level.
