The school employs a range of regular assessment and reporting measures, shared with both students and parents via communication books, face-to-face meetings and formal reports.
Assessment and reporting structures at Shrewsbury emphasise the key role that a child’s attitude and approach plays in successful learning. They are driven by the fundamental belief that all students have the potential to develop and improve.
We use formal frameworks for assessing and reporting students’ academic progress, based on the age appropriate standards set out in the English National Curriculum.
Written reports are provided twice a year in which students are graded as to whether they are working towards, meeting or exceeding the standards expected for their particular age group.
In addition to the reports provided by class and specialist teachers, parents have regular opportunities to see the quality of their children’s work for themselves through blogs, topic days, exhibitions, classroom displays and other important gatherings and celebrations of our student’s achievements throughout the school year.
