Keeping Parents Informed

As a small School we pride ourselves on our communication links with parents. Parents are asked to sign student planners weekly to be kept informed about homework and maintain communication with the form tutor. In addition, students at the Senior School receive assessment grades in attainment and effort, along with targets for improvement, in every subject five times per year. These are augmented by annual parents evenings, full academic reports and statistical analysis of examination results to measure and improve ‘value added’. We believe that parents of HGSF students are kept fully aware of students’ academic and pastoral progress through the appropriate mix of subjective, objective, summative and formative reporting and assessment.
