Keeping in touch with your progress

During the year subject teachers and personal learning tutors will explain what type of learning will help to achieve the grades that you are aiming for.

Teachers will also give you feedback on the grade you are currently working at in all subjects. You should compare these with your success targets to see how well you are doing.  You can also check how much progress you have made across the year so far.  All parents and carers are provided with a user name and password which provides access to your son/daughters progress, achievement and attendance data via the ‘Go4Schools’ system.

Subject teachers and personal learning tutors will regularly give feedback on the quality of your  work and effort and advice on how to improve.

During the year we hold a Tutor Review Day. You are expected to come into school with your parent/carer for a 10 minute appointment to look in detail at your progress and how you are managing your learning. Where problems or uncertainties arise, a booking will be made to see the teacher(s) concerned at the Subject Parents’ evening.

At the Subject Parents’ evening you are free to see as many or as few teachers as appropriate. Some staff may request to see you. You will find this out and can either make the appointments on Review Day or online using the Parents Evening booking system.

Oakwood High School is an e communications school, this enables us to communicate more effectively with parents and carers using email and text messages.

We hope to reduce our carbon footprint in the coming months and years, and see the use of the above as a key way of doing that. Parents and carers are asked to provide an email address and a mobile phone number when their child starts school. Parents are required to inform us of any changes to their contact details.
