Reports and Parents’ Evenings


Reports are issued at Christmas and at the end of the school year in July. The Christmas report is a shorter report, which includes A general teacher comment, English, Mathematics and short statements regarding the Foundation Subjects. A full report is sent home in the summer term. Girls are continuously assessed and parents meet with teachers in October (Prep class only) and February/March, April/May to review progress and to discuss their daughter’s next steps.

SATs tests take place at the end of Year 6. The pupils also take part in the Incas diagnostic testing at Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Parents’ Evening

There are Parents’ Evenings in October (Prep), February/March and April/May each academic year. Specialist teachers are available at the Parents’ Evenings. Parents who are unable to attend Parents’ Evening are welcome to speak to the Lower School Office to arrange a mutually convenient time to discuss their daughter’s progress with her class teacher.

Open Classrooms

Parents of pupils in Years 1 to 6 are invited into the classrooms at least every half term on a Friday at the end of school to look over their daughters’ work. Please note that this is not a time for consultation with the class teacher, but an opportunity to celebrate your daughter’s work and to be involved in her learning. Classrooms are closed from 4pm.
