On entry student targets are established based on FFT50 data. Mainstream school-based data, including attendance, is also taken into consideration when planning. Gaps in learning are identified from teacher assessment within the first six weeks of entry to the centre and work is set accordingly.
Subjects are regularly assessed and pupils receive feedback on a lesson to lesson basis. All marking assesses achievement and gives guidance on how to progress further.
Reports are issued to parents twice a year. There are two parents’ evenings per year which enables parents to discuss any issues which have arisen from the reports.
Examinations this year are being managed different due to the length of time students have been out of school because of COVID restrictions. The following diagram is to show the timescales we will be working with to ensure students achieve grades to the best of their ability.
