Dear Parents and Guardians,
I very much hope this finds you well and that your child(ren) have settled back into Noadswood as well as possible. We would like to thank you for every bit of community engagement as always, and to thank your children for the many magical moments they have shared with us since the return.. As ever, if you or they are worried about anything please do contact their tutors or House Leaders and we will do everything we can to support.
This is just a quick message to update you about our end of term arrangements, including reports for spring 2021, as normally we would now be entering the report window where we publish and send them to you (with the previous reports being published in December).
End of Term Arrangements
Students will have a slightly extended tutor time and their first three lessons, followed by a tutor time with House Leader messages. The day will end as follows:
Years 9, 10 and 11 finish at 12.20pm
Years 7 and 8 finish at 12.30pm
With lockdown occurring in January and only recently lifting for schools, we have decided to change the release dates slightly to ensure that the information we give you, including the academic progress, is as beneficial as possible whilst allowing our staff the opportunity to really re-engage your child and gather the appropriate formative and summative assessment to be able to comment on their current academic progress. The reports issued will vary, with Year 11 having "grade range" academic data released to help support them in their main assessment window. As such, our timeline is listed below:
Year 11 - will be receiving updates about their progress and likely assessment range from teaching staff now, and will receive two grade range certificates, like we have previously mentioned, on Monday May 10th 2021 and Friday May 28th 2021. There will also be a tutor event on Tuesday May 11th 2021 to go through the first grade range assessment certificate. More information about this can be found on our GCSE support page (click link).
Years 10, 9, 8 and 7 will receive a slightly amended report a few weeks after the Easter return which will include information about their current effort in each subject as well as how they have settled back into Noadswood. They will then subsequently receive their normal end of year report as usual in July, along with tutor comments and a summary of how they are doing both academically and in a pastoral sense.
All our very best,
