Reporting to parents


At The Discovery School, we are keen to keep parents up to date with your child's progress.

Over the course of the academic year, parents receive 3 progress reports. These reports come home to you in terms 2 (Christmas), 4 (Easter) and 6 (Summer). These reports give you a snap shot of how your child is performing against the expectations for their year group.

Below is a brief outline of how these both look and work for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.



EYFS Progress Reports


Your reports looks different to the main school as your children are working on the Early Years Curriculum. Your report shares with you the progress your children are making towards the seven key areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Mathematics
  • Literacy
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Personal, Social and Emotional development

As well as this, you will also receive feedback under ‘general comments’ and ‘well-being & involvement’. Please discuss this feedback with them and celebrate their progress so far.



Years 1 - 6 Progress Reports


For those of you who are new to the system in years 1 - 6, below is a brief outline about how to interpret your child’s progress report:

Firstly, you will receive a Progress Update Report at the end of each full term. (Christmas, Easter and summer) This means you will be better informed about the progress your child is making, throughout the year.

Secondly, each large term, you will receive feedback on the following areas: presentation of work, attitude to learning, behaviour, politeness & manners and homework, as well as some general comments. We would hope that you will celebrate and discuss this feedback with your child.



Finally you are provided with information about how well your child is performing against the age-related expectations for their year group. The progress report will tell you if your child is on-track to make their expected progress.
