At Mulberry Academy Woodside the progress of students is assessed through a mixture of summative tests and teacher assessment.
Students will sit exams in a designated exam window, when results will be collected and reported to parents and carers.
All year groups will also have one Parents/Carers’ Evening, where a conversation with each subject teacher will provide an update about a student’s academic performance, effort and behaviour, and set clear targets on how to improve. Numerical data is kept to a minimum at these events as we believe the conversation about a student’s performance is far richer when focused on the formative evidence, including: the work in exercise books, the contributions in class and the independent learning they have demonstrated.
In addition we encourage parents and carers to make contact with subject teachers directly should they have concerns or questions about a student’s progress throughout the year. Email addresses can be found on the school website.
