This year schools and academies have had to develop new assessment procedures and grading systems and as a result this report will look very different to those sent out previously. At Beaufort Co-operative Academy we have viewed this as an opportunity to more accurately report on the progress of students. We are aware, that as with any new system, it will take some time to become familiar with but I hope that the guidance in this letter helps you understand the progress that your son/daughter is making.
GCSE Grade comparison table.
As from 2017 all GCSE grades will use a 1- 9 scale. The table shows an approximate comparison to the old A*-G grading system.
Absence and attendance figures are recorded at the bottom of the report. These are accurate from when the report was printed. Minimum expected attendance is 97%.
Finally we understand the importance of accurately reporting on students’ progress and are keen that the Academy assessment system is as informative as possible so any feedback would be appreciated.
I hope that this guide is clear and enables you to understand the progress your son/daughter is making.
If you would like further clarification or to give feedback please do not hesitate to contact the academy at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone on 01452 301381.
