Castlehead High School > Reporting
Pupils in S1 and S2 are assessed by means of continuous assessment and in this way the pupils’ progress is carefully monitored throughout the session. A full report card and an interim report are issued each session. These give parents an indication of the level of achievement reached by their child. In Maths and English, a complete programme of national testing is implemented.
Assessment is an integral part of learning and teaching. It helps provide a picture of the learner’s progress and achievements and identifies the next steps in learning. Assessment includes supporting learning, learner engagement and ensuring appropriate support.
Tracking learners’ progress
Information learners’ progress is gathered through planned assessments and this information is recorded. This allows teachers to have a clear picture of how learners are progressing. It will also allow teachers to identify next steps in learning and inform reporting on progress and achievement.
Regular reports to parents provide clear, positive and constructive information about their child’s learning and progress, reflecting on what has been achieved against standards and expectations.
