School Prayer Lord, help us to become the people You want us to be. In our school may there be prayer, learning and humour; hard work, faith and friendship. May we respect everyone we meet; use our gifts and encourage each other. Send Your angels to guide us, and let Your peace be with us and our families always. We ask all these things through Christ our Lord, Amen.

How we can work as a partnership to monitor your child’s progress
We have a commitment to ensure that each and every child achieves their potential. To do this we need to be constantly aware of the progress of every student.
Each Half Term the students receive a score in each subject. These scores are then reported to Parents Students Tutors Heads of Year Curriculum Leaders
Year 7 Pastoral Mentoring This mentoring monitors the students attitude to learning in each individual subject. Years 8 to 11 Academic Mentoring This mentoring monitors the students progress towards specific academic targets in each individual subject.
SCORE OF 1 Excellent behaviour and attitude which promotes good progress and learning both for the individual student and the other students in the class. This student does all of his/her work to the best of his/ her ability and always shows the highest levels of concentration and enthusiasm.
SCORE OF 2 Generally good behaviour and attitude which allows progress to be made. This student does what is expected of him but does no more. This student will do what is necessary to keep up with the work and will avoid causing any disruptions in class. Their behaviour will always allow the class and the individual student to make progress.
SCORE OF 3 Behaviour which is sometimes unacceptable. This student will either occasionally or regularly be off task. This student may sometimes or regularly fail to complete work and may sometimes or regularly distract others. A student is given a 3, if his attitude and behaviour may sometimes or regularly prevent either the individual student or his/her classmates from making progress.
