At Bell Baxter High School our Assessment and Reporting systems are designed to support learning, provide feedback to pupils, parents and other teachers and to young people to identify their next steps in learning. As a school we are committed to:
- Pupils knowing and understanding where they are in relation to their learning and progress
- Pupils knowing what steps they have to take to improve.
- Pupils having realistic expectations of their levels of attainment.
- Parents being aware of their children’s progress and likely attainment.
All pupils from S1-S6 can expect to be involved in a formal dialogue with their teachers in relation to progress targets and next steps. This information is recorded in our Monitoring and Tracking System.
