Supporting your daughter's future

Online guidance is available from www.parentalguidance.org.uk to support parents with helping their daughters' career planning.

In addition, the Government Equalities Office has produced a guide called 'Your daughter's future' to help parents to support their daughters' careers and educational choices.  Please use the link at the bottom of this page to read this guidance.

Grades and Targets

Please use the link below to see an explanation of what your daughter's grades mean. 

Targets are a reflection of a student's potential and are based on Key Stage 2 prior attainment.  There is the opportunity to review the target grade during the year, but a target must never be moved down.
 

After every assessment point, the teacher will provide a predicted grade for each student in their subject. The predicted grade is based on the evidence from their current performance. Unlike their target grade, a predicted grade can change depending on the students’ performance on the current assessment.

 

There is an information evening each September to help parents to understand how we use grades and targets.  However, if you have any questions about their daughter's grades and targets, please feel welcome to ask us.
