The learning indicator is a measure of your child’s attitude to their learning. There are four possible indicators: ‘Excellent’, ‘Good’, ‘Requires Improvement’ and ‘Poor’.
Teachers award the learning indicator based on your child’s effort in both class work and homework.
To achieve ‘Excellent’, students must exceed expectations. This is given to approximately the top 10% of students in the classroom. Students who are meeting all expectations would receive a “Good” as their learning indicator.
Area of Development (Comment):
Students are given a short comment stating which topic they can focus on to improve their current attainment further. This comment is written by their teacher and linked to one of our online learning platforms so that students can work on these areas independently at home.
At KS3, these comments are provided in our EBacc subjects (English, Maths, Science, History, Geography and MFL). At KS4 and KS5 these comments are written for all examined subjects.
For Mathematics, this links to Sparx Maths (KS3), Hegarty Maths (KS4) or Integral Maths (KS5). It is also possible to look at these on the United Learning Curriculum website.
For MFL, this links to LanguageNut. It is also possible to look at these on the United Learning Curriculum website.
For other subjects this links to either SENECA or the United Learning Curriculum Website.
