Quick Reference

Schools are required to send parents or carers at least one report each academic year detailing their child's progress in national curriculum core subjects and, where appropriate, the results of their Standard Tasks (SATs). The report must also make clear how the pupil's SAT score compares with those of others in their age group. Parents are also informed of their child's attendance record, their attitude to learning, and their general progress. Schools may include other information, such as the results of internal examinations, or progress in subjects and activities outside the core subjects. The report forms part of the essential communication between school and home, and often suggests ways in which parents and carers can support the child in improving their performance.

Subjects: International Law — Education.
