Assessment and Progress Reporting

To support parents/carers in helping their child at home, St John Fisher School post home academic reports four times each academic year for Years 07, 08, 11, 12 and 13. In Years 09 and 10 five academic reports are posted home each academic year. There will be three/four Assessment and Progress Reports Cards and one Full Report. The Assessment and Progress Report Card gives information on the Current Achieved Levels in each subject together with an Effort Grade. The Full Report will also include this data; in addition, written comments from teachers in each subject studied will be included. This regular information will enable parents/carers to see quickly how well their child is progressing and also if they are beginning to fall behind.
