We talk a great deal about learning at NTS and in order to encourage students to become better learners we have introduced attitude to learning grades. We believe that if students approach their learning in the right way there will be direct benefits to their attainment grades.
The attitude to learning grades will apply to all students and they will be reported to them and their parents at regular intervals. This will usually be every half-term.
We will record the average grade achieved and monitor movements of this average from one reporting session to another. Where we have concerns intervention will take place.
These grades will also be incorporated into the twice yearly reports.
All students have a copy of the criteria for gaining these grades.
