Reports and interim reports – which give pupils and parents vital, formative feedback on how to move forward with their academic studies – are issued three times per year to children in the Pre-Prep School, and monthly to Prep and Senior School pupils.
Pupils’ academic, pastoral and co-curricular progress is monitored closely by a committed team of Class Teachers (in the Pre-Prep School) and Form Tutors (in the Prep and Senior Schools) to ensure that all King’s pupils are progressing as they should be and to help provide support and guidance when needed.
From Year 5 upwards, the relationship between a King’s pupil and their Form Tutor becomes the most important in the whole of the school community. Form Tutors oversee the pastoral care of all pupils within their form and meet with their tutees both collectively and individually on a regular basis.
From an academic perspective, the progress of pupils across all school phases is carefully monitored by their teachers, and there is regular communication with parents should a problem arise.
Academic reports consist of comments from teachers and a target grade, which indicates whether a pupil is on target to attain, outstrip or fall short of expectations in each subject or area of learning. This provide and opportunity for our older pupils and all parents to reflect upon and discuss progress across all subjects and, where necessary, to formulate targets for future development.
