Student Assessment

The aim of the ‘student tracking system’ is to provide an assessment system which tracks the progress made by students throughout the year and between year groups.


It aims to combine prior student data together with staff information to provide a detailed snapshot of a student’s progress throughout their time at The Chase. It collects “current grade” data from staff with the aim of gauging at any set time, the current performance of students.


How it works:

There are three tracking windows calendared during the academic year


On each occasion information is provided by staff to keep the assessment of students current and therefore as accurate as possible. Progress reports are then distributed to parents electronically via The Sims Parent App. Parents can opt in to a paper based copy of this report by emailing the school


More information about the Sims Parent App can be found here on the general information page
