Reporting and Assessment

Reporting

Regular feedback to students and parents about their progress is an important aspect of our work. All students are regularly assessed in their lessons throughout the year. The Progress Reports summarise the progress the students are making in these assessments.

All students have 3 Progress Reports a year. The dates of these reports vary and often coincide with Parent Consultation Evenings. All the dates for the parents’ evening are published on the school website.

What do we report on?

Students received a mini booklet and this provides the following information:

  • Attendance
  • Target Grade
  • Attitude to learning (ATL*) in class
  • Attitude to learning (ATL*) for homework
  • Number of House Points
  • Number and type of consequence

All progress data is collated and reviewed by the Heads of Department and the information is used to identify students whose progress is a cause for concern. Appropriate intervention will be put in place to students who are in danger of falling behind. This intervention might be at classroom level, attendance to extra sessions after school and/or additional work to complete at home.

*     ATL grades:

       1 =        Exceptional engagement and contribution to learning

       2 =        Consistently actively engaged in learning

       3 =        Occasionally resistant to learning

       4 =        Regularly resistant to learning

Student Resources

RBA is very well equipped. The first and most important resource for students is the staff itself. Teachers are highly trained, knowledgeable professionals who care deeply about the needs of students and make it their priority to get the best out of every child in the school. They are supported by a range of other staff, including teaching assistants, administrative staff and librarians, all of whom provide a valuable resource for our students.

The school also possesses an impressive range of resources on the premises. First and foremost is the well-stocked school library, containing books for both work and pleasure. Secondly, the school has computer rooms which are used in lessons and also computer facilities which students are able to use independently in the library. We also aim to provide quiet rooms which can be used for work at lunchtimes. Furthermore, each subject area has its own resources, from sports equipment to tools and machines, all of which are used by students in lessons and outside of lessons where needed under appropriate supervision.
