At Ark Acton academy we have a clear view on the role of assessment data and what it can and can’t tell us. To that end we have two points in the academic year where we meet with parents and carers to discuss how your child is doing and what we can all do to support them. We call these days Academic Review Days. At this day each parent or carer will receive a report on how their child is doing in each subject alongside strategies you can use at home to help. The form tutor of your child will have a 20 minute slot on the day to discuss the report and the suggested strategies.


The dates for our Academic Review Days for 2019/20 are:

Friday 17th January 2020.

On this day your child’s form tutor will discuss the assessment data from our December assessment fortnight and the next steps to ensure your child continues to make good progress within the curriculum.

Friday 22nd May 2020.

On this day your child’s form tutor will discuss the upcoming end of year assessment fortnight and how we can ensure your child is best prepared for this.

End of year report

You will then receive an end of year report on 17/7/20 summing up the year for your child with regard to their end of year exam results.

A copy of the report you will receive at the three points across the academic year can be found here.
