Carshalton High School for Girls is a high achieving school.
At Key Stage 3 and 4, after each progress review for the term students will be judged with the criteria shown below. In Years 7 and 8, depending upon what students have received for their attendance, expected progress in English and Maths and other subjects, report status, points and help within the community they will be eligible for distinction, merit, or pass award. In Years 9, 10 and 11 student will be eligible for eligible for a gold, silver or bronze award. We will monitor the points and adjust the level if required to maximise students’ rewards. It is hoped that all students will achieve at least a pass level. Whatever they achieve, we are hoping students will reflect on their progress and change or enhance what they are doing to achieve more at the following progress review. We have also now changed the name of our points to House Achievement Points (HAPs) so they are linked and recognised with our house system creating a far more inclusive system as a whole.
Following release of the data based on the criteria, students will have a year assembly where their successes will be celebrated. Students will be given certificates, recognition and possibly a gold, silver or bronze star badge depending upon their level. It is our aim to embed a culture of ‘Wear them with Pride’ as it truly reflects their success in a range of areas.
Students will have reflective sessions as part of their Personal Academic Review in tutor periods, where they will write their next steps and actions in their planners. These will also have to be completed by parents.
At the end of the year Year 7 students will take part in a Celebration of chievement event, a Graduation will take place for Year 8 and a Prize Giving events for students in Years 9, 10 and 11, where overall student winners and subject prizes will be given out. Students could have 3 stars by the end of the year with lots of recognition, praise and certificates. Key Stage 4 students will also compose a record of achievement portfolio that will aim to be completed by the end of Year 11 that will outline their achievements, skills and qualities.
