Support Your Child

What is the Progress and Achievement Framework?

The Progress and Achievement Framework supports your child to make good progress in all aspects of learning. Important parts of the framework are ‘Target Setting Weeks’ and ‘Progress and Achievement Sessions’ (P&A Sessions). During target setting weeks each student is given targets by all subject teachers regarding how they can improve in each subject and it is important that they record these accurately in their planners and bring them home to share with you, so that you can assist them in making progress towards the targets.

During P&A Sessions students read through their Progress and Achievement reports with their mentor and will discuss how they are going to ensure they can make good progress in the lead up to the next progress and achievement day.

What is effective target setting?

Effective target setting is when you reflect on your current grades and consider with your teachers exactly how you will move forward to the next level. It is important that you consider what skills you need to work on in order to succeed and then revisit this often in order to track your progress.

How can I successfully reflect on my Progress on P&A Session?

On P&A day you should consider the following questions and discuss the answers with your mentor before making a plan about how you will progress before the next P&A Session.

  • Are you pleased with your report? Why/Why not?
  • Have you met the targets that you set last P&A Session? How do you feel about this?
  • What things have you enjoyed or done well since the last P&A Session?
  • How hard have you worked? In which subjects have you worked the hardest? Do your effort levels reflect this?
  • Focusing on your grades, which are your strongest and weakest subjects? What would you like to get better at? How will your subject target aid you to do this?
  • What can you do in your lessons and at home to improve further?
  • Which effort and achievement grades do you want to see next P&A Session?
  • What will you do to ensure this happens?
