At CFS, we believe that regular and constructive communication with parents about their child’s progress is a vital part of a successful education. It is also important that daily feedback is provided to pupils in the classroom, both celebrating their achievements and supporting them in making the next steps.  

In a variety of measures – academic progress, attitude to learning, House Points, behaviour and attendance – CFS adopts a colour coded system to ensure pupils, and their parents, clearly understand how they are doing. 

Whilst these conversations are occurring regularly with subject teachers and tutors, where appropriate, the whole school also has a ‘Colour Week’ each term. During these weeks, pupils’ progress in all these measures is formally recognised. 

Alongside the regular, often informal communication with parents, please find outlined our formal programme of written reports and Pupil Progress Consultation Meetings in both phases of the School.

Written Reports
