Maiden Erlegh School in Reading is committed to supporting students in their achieving their full academic potential and on-going assessment plays a vital role ensuring that happens.

At the start of each key stage, students set themselves a target in negotiation with their teachers.  This is based on a "realistically aspirational" grade which reflects what similar students nationally might aspire to.  Regular assessment helps us monitor students' progress and target learning and teaching activities accordingly.  In addition, students receive regular feedback on their work and are expected to complete improvement and reflection activities to embed their learning and understanding.

We regularly feedback this information to parents and students and the main ways of doing this are:

Reports

Each Year Group in school receives an annual report made up of 3 data reports.  These reports contain student targets and a current attainment or predicted grade.  Parent App also provides parents and students with information about attendance, behaviour and pastoral achievements as well as the timetable.  Parents and students can access the Parent App at any time to see this "live" data.

Progress Meetings

Once a year, students and parents are invited to a calendared meeting with subject staff.  The purpose of this is to discuss targets, progress and strategies for improvement.  Parents and students may request additional appointments with teachers at any point throughout the year.
