On the 13th of July pupils will receive their final report of the year. The report will contain:
- The full written report from the class teacher
- The termly attainment report
In addition to this, pupils in reception will receive the results of their EYFS assessment, pupils in year 1 will receive results of their phonics test, pupils in year two will receive the results of their end of KS1 assessment and pupils in year 6 will receive the results of their end of KS2 assessment.
The teacher report contains information about your child’s work in class, with a final comment from the class teacher and the head teacher. This report also lets pupils know who their next teacher will be for the coming year.
The attainment report will contain the following information. The report is split into three main sections:
- Attendance – information about how many sessions your child has been in school with an indication of whether they are currently over the school’s attendance target.
- Attainment – information about how your child is doing compared to children of a similar age
- Effort – new to this year’s report a grade based on the effort your child puts into their time at New Marske Primary School.
In the attainment section of the report there is a column entitled ‘NC Grade’. This is the national curriclum grade your child is currently working at. This is followed by a -, = or+ sign. At New Marske Primary School we expect pupils to be a ‘-‘ in the autumn term, at ‘=’ in the spring term and at ‘+’ in the summer term. This means that a child in year three in the summer term should be a 3+, a child in year 1 a 1+ and a child in year 6 a 6+. The box next to this grade, the age expectation box, indicates if they are ‘At’ their age expectation,
If a child has a number below their year group, this means that they are working below their age group. We have tried to simplify the report this year by only having 4 grades.
|Above||The pupil is working above their age expectation|
|At||The pupil is working at their age expectation|
|Working towards||The pupil is just below their age expectation.|
|Below||The pupil is below their age expectation|
The criteria for the effort grade is as follows.
|1||Always tries his/her best
Work is always of the highest standard – for ability

|2||Work is always done to the best of ability
Takes responsibility for own learning
Regularly completes homework to a high standard
Often contributes good ideas and answers in lessons
|3||Has a positive attitude to work

Works well with others
Homework is always completed
Maintains good relationships
Takes an active part in lessons
|4||Doesn’t start work without teacher prompting

Finds it difficult to work with others
|5||Repeated errors show no attempt to improve or learn from previous work

Grades of 1-3 are acceptable, but a higher the grade will indicate that a pupil is working near their full potential.
As with all reports, this information is only a snapshot of what a pupil is doing within school. if you require any further information about how your child is doing, the best person to speak to is their class teacher. This report will be an excellent starting point for a discussion and our staff will be more than willing to discuss any issues you have.
