Reporting to Parents

We see a successful education as a partnership between parents, carers, students and school and value all contact with you. As well as the ongoing pastoral support your child will receive at Bartholomew School, we will communicate with you more formally at several stages during the year. 

Year 11 Success Fayre

Welcome 

The Year 11 Virtual Success Fayre provides a range of information and guidance to help prepare students for the run up to their exams.

Below you will find two short presentations, one taking you through the timeline for the year, noting key events, and the other offering some key revision strategies and guidance. You will also find some useful links, including to the ‘Bartholomew Revision Website’, where you will find revision and exam preparation guidance for each specific subject area.

We really hope that you find the page helpful and supportive. We are very keen to support students as much as we can over this important year.

Please also look out for further information about our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 25th November.

Snapshot Reports

Formal reports are sent home three times a year, for all year groups.  They include: information on students’ target levels or grades, current levels or grades, whether they are on course to meet their targets, and advice to help them reach their targets.  They also include an indication of students’ attitude to learning, broken down into: behaviour for learning, quality of work and independent learning.  The final report of the year also includes a summary comment by the student’s form tutor, which focuses on progress and personal development.

Parent Consultation Evening (PCE)

In addition to snapshot reports, parents and carers are also invited to a Parent Consultation Evening once a year, where they can discuss their child’s progress with subject teachers, form tutor and Head of Year.

These meetings may take place either face-to-face or via our virtual platform, SchoolCloud. You will find the dates for these on our calendar and we will confirm the arrangements at least one week in advance.
