JRCS Reports - SPRD Preparation
You will shortly or may have already recieved your end of term report. We think it’s important that you understand what we mean by ‘excellent’, ‘good’, ‘satisfactory’, ‘cause for concern’ and ‘poor’ JRCS Reporting System. This will take more than one form time, and the activity will require your tutor to assist you.

Following on from the assembly, you need to prepare for SPRD by doing the tasks below over the course of the next few tutor sessions.
Attainment and Targets - In student planners, you should record your attainment, predicted grades and make sure the targets they have put in are accurate.
You need to do the following before SPRD:
Read the introductions at the top of the Effort Matrix.
With your tutor, read the column “Independence” on the effort matrix, Effort_Matrix_2012-13.doc then use a coloured pencil or highlighter to highlight the one box which best describes you. Then you should read the “Resilience” column and do the same. And so on.
At the end you need to make a judgement as to where most of you grades fall Behaviour_and_Homework_Matrix_2012-13.doc : ‘excellent’, ‘good’, ‘satisfactory’, ‘cause for concern’ or ‘poor’; you can then highlight this in the box at the top of each matrix. If there is an equal split between grades you should use the most important criteria to guide their judgement, as you do when you’re using the criteria. At the end circle one target from each matrix which you know you can focus on to improve further.
Please then make sure the sheet is stapled or glued into your planner for future reference.
JRCS reporting and ranking system
This is a summary of the reporting and ranking system which we have introduced across all year groups in preparation for SPRD. The reporting and ranking system is designed to reward students who excel or improve in a meaningful way, and at regular intervals. It also allows us to support students who are not meeting our basic standards.
• Students are ranked according to effort, behaviour and homework. Academic performance does not contribute to student scores. These scores are turned into an overall average.
• Students engage with the matrixes so they understand what we mean by excellent behaviour and effort.
• You are not in competition with each other, you are ranked against fixed thresholds. However, you may enjoy the competitive element!
• Data is collected at the end of each half term. Six weeks is long enough for you to show sustained improvement.
