Assessment and Reporting
Students are subject to formative as well as summative assessment. Thus teaching programmes may be adapted to compensate for particular weaknesses discovered, both on an individual and a whole-class basis. Assessments may include speaking, writing, reading and listening. Free writing is encouraged wherever possible.
These are provided to parents online via the Parent Portal. The report includes a brief synopsis of their child’s progress in the form of achievement and effort grades for each subject. They are issued in October, the week before half-term break
Issued to exam classes after mock exams in Years 11 - 13. They provide feedback to students on their exam performance only also advising on strategies for improvement of exam techniques and preparations.
Full reports are sent to parents three times a year, at the end of each term. Each report contains a comprehensive breakdown regarding achievement, effort and teacher comments. The report also shows attendance, lates and WINAI.
WINAI is a standard which takes into account appearance, attendance, punctuality, promptness of homework and politeness. This is calculated into a percentage which is contained in the full reports.
Leaving Traill International School
Students leaving either at the end or part-way through the year receive a leavers folder containing their latest report, a reference, an academic transcript and examples of work if required. If necessary, overseas school entrance examinations may be posted directly to the International School. We will then organise a time for them to be completed and ensure that they are appropriately administered. You will need to inform us in advance should you wish us to do this for you.
*School reports and documentation are issued provided all school fees are up to date.
