Ensuring Positive Progress and Achievement for all
From the moment your child joins the school until the day that he or she leaves, their progress is monitored to ensure their success. Information from the previous school attended, plus our own assessments inform us. We use these sources of information to celebrate their successes and intervene where we feel there is a need. In addition to teachers’ day to day assessments, and the care and guidance of Progress Managers, assessments are analysed on a termly basis. This information is communicated to pupils and parents in the Progress Day, Parents Evening, Gradesheets and reports, including through our Firefly learning platform.
As a school, we endeavour to provide our students with the support they need, particularly at crucial times in the school calendar. Form Tutors engage their students in Learning Conversations, and students can take part in specific mentoring and support programmes, to secure their progress.
In addition, the school offers innumerable opportunities for enjoyment and achievement out of the classroom through the successful sporting and music programmes, our excellent Extended Schools Provision, and a wide range of residential and day trips.
There is strong evidence that involvement in this sort of activity is linked with good academic achievement as the child engages positively with all the school offers, so we do encourage all to take part in at least one extra-curricular activity (many would like to be involved in all!).
ARRANGEMENTS FOR PARENTAL VISITS
An Open Evening will be held in school on Thursday 27th September for the parents of children presently in Year 6. Parents will be able to visit all areas of the school from 6.30 p.m. observe pupils working and discuss any queries they may have.
There will be a brief formal meeting at 8.00 p.m. in the school hall, at which the main areas of the school’s expectations, organisation and experiences are described, and the admissions process is explained. Senior students will also give a short presentation on their personal experiences of Endon High School. This meeting lasts usually 30 minutes, with an opportunity for individual questions at the end.
Mr Skelding, Headteacher is happy to discuss personal enquiries from parents at any time, and a tour of the school during a normal school day is available for any prospective pupils and their parents in addition, or as an alternative to the Open Evening opportunities.
There will be a further meeting in July 2019 for those parents who have been offered and have accepted a place at the school for their child for September 2019.
Your child will have a full induction programme, meeting his/her Progress Manager personally, and coming into Endon High School for a taster day towards the end of their Year 6.
