Parents are informed of students’ behaviour and progress periodically throughout the academic year. Term assessment results, percentages and comments are posted home at Christmas and Summer after in-house examinations.
Periodic Assessments are issued via the VSWare College administration system, informing students and their parents of their progress and behaviour in each individual subject class. Each report is reviewed by their Year Dean.
Reporting on your child’s progress is important in order to maintain connected to their learning and progress. In addition to contact with Year Deans, parents will receive the following feedback:
Staff will use the school journal for feedback on test results or low-level disciplinary matters. Teachers can ask a child to bring a particular message to parents' attention via the School Journal.
After Christmas and Summer tests (and Mock Exams for 6th and 3rd Year) Rockwell College issues Term Reports with comments from teachers on your child’s progress.
Throughout the school year, Periodic Assessment Notes will be issued via VSWare. These are brief reports that identify your child’s application in a subject rather than the grade or percentage received. They are followed by meetings with the Year group to discuss pupils’ progress, to affirm strong application and guide those underperforming.
