Assessments Letter

Dear Parents,


Your daughter or son’s final Assessment Sheet will be available on the SIMS Parent App from Monday, July 15th.

We hope that both you and they will find cause for celebration and that the grades they have received will inform their work for the coming term and beyond.

In the coming school year we will be focusing on student attendance. Every student should be aiming for 100%, except in the most exceptional circumstances. Less than 98% attendance is a serious cause for concern and identified by educational research as disruptive to students’ learning. Attendance recorded of students, who arrive and are marked late to school in the morning, or who are marked late in the afternoon, is reduced by their lateness.

In 2019 – 20 we are sharpening our focus on the completion of all Homework by all students to their best personal standard, as we believe this is a vital key to student learning and progress. Homework set by teachers is shown on our SIMS Parent App and should be recorded by students in their planners.

We are now insisting all students bring an appropriately sized bag to school, which is sufficiently large and robust to carry equipment and books.

If you have any query or concern around your daughter or son’s Assessments please contact their Academy Director from Monday – Wednesday of next week.

May I also take this opportunity to wish all students and their families a restful and happy summer holiday.


Yours sincerely,

Charles Joseph

Senior Vice Principal
