REPORTING TO PARENTS
A comprehensive report and/or grade sheet is issued to parents at parent/teacher consultations each term. If parents are unable to attend, the reports or grade sheets are sent via the student and by post or e-mail.
Throughout the school, progress in effort and achievement are recorded at the end of each half term. These are also distributed to parents in the form of a profile so that a child's progress over the year can be monitored.
The students also use these levels or grades. Students are required to set themselves academic and social targets for the term. This is done in consultation with form tutors and Heads of Year so that the targets are challenging but remain realistic.
In addition to academic progress, we also maintain records of student involvement in extra-curricular activities and community service contributions so that when they leave Brookhouse we are in a position to write a very thorough testimonial.
In addition to reports, we communicate regularly to inform parents of the achievements of their sons and daughters. We believe that education is a partnership between the home and the school, and so parents are always welcome to visit the school to discuss any issue relevant to the education of their child. It is always important, however, to telephone to make an appointment if you wish to meet with staff, so that we can schedule a suitable time, and prepare for the meeting by gathering all the relevant information.
