Bournemouth School believes that effective target setting can significantly improve the performance of students. To this end, individual targets are set for all students at the beginning of each key stage. These individual targets are discussed with students and shared with parents.
Assessment is integral to effective teaching and learning and focuses on supporting students to achieve their full potential. Bournemouth School students are regularly assessed and their progress monitored. Guidance and individual support is given to ensure all students remain on track to achieve their personal targets.
Regular communication is maintained with parents through termly interim reports in which a student’s progress towards his targets is recorded as well as his attitude in lessons and towards independent study. Each student also receives an annual written report.
Parents’ Evenings enable students and parents to discuss achievements, progress and any concerns with staff.
