All pupils are assessed regularly through class work, home work, internal assessments and by scheduled external 'public' assessment. Details of the performance of each pupil are held by the teacher in each subject and also stored centrally on the school network for subject, faculty and whole-school access. All pupils are assessed formally at 3 points in each academic year.
The results of these test-based assessments are recorded via the School's MIS and this information is then shared with pupils, parents and staff through an 'Interim Report' sheet which includes details of the pupil's assessment score as a percentage, the group average, an indication of the current level/grade of attainment in relation to National curriculum/GCSE (or equivalent) criteria, and a Target level/grade indicating the National Curriculum/GCSE level* the teacher believes the pupil is capable of achieving by the end of the key stage.
There is also a grade awarded for Effort, to reflect the pupil's own level of input towards progression within the subject. The third and final report of each academic year also contains a written statement from the form tutor.
The results of the external examinations are then released to pupils on the national 'results release day'.
Parents' Evenings are held for each year group once per year. At these events, parents (and pupils) are able to meet with the pupils' subject teachers and discuss progress and any issues as appropriate.
N.B. Please be aware that Healing School's assessment policy is currently to continue with a system of measuring progress in National Curriculum levels at Key Stage 3 and numerical GCSE grades for the vast majority of subjects at Key Stage 4. Any future changes will be fully communicated to parents.

At Healing we firmly believe in the value of extra-curricular experiences. We offer a wide variety of after school activities which include cheerleading, theatre events, sports and competitions. Each faculty area contributes to our enrichment activities and we are always seeking new ways to provide pupils with a range of opportunities outside of the classroom itself.
