I'd like some advice from those in the know please ! My son's grammar school sets end of year targets as a point system ...all added up to a grand total ( 5c is 31, 5b is 33 and so on ) apart from Maths and English which he does have a target NC level to reach and is currently 1 sub level away from reaching, so hopefully will achieve that target ! However I have been sent an email to say he is currently some points off his total ...not a personal one, but one they send to everyone if they are 38 points or more below at this stage .
His points add up to 432 which is higher then 2 friends in his class and although I don't really know much about it all , it would seem he needs to go up by a whole level in every subject to achieve this, which seems quite high...or is that the progress they need to make at school ? That would mean he needs to be level 6 for the majority of his subjects...and a 6a for some ???
I have emailed his tutor and head of year but have had no reply as yet......and you know how I like to worry. I do apologise to those of you that I've already bored with pms about this too.
When I spoke to DS about it...he is lazy and I am slightly worried he is just doing the bare minimum , he was really upset because he thought he was doing really well . When DH texted him to say we had received an email he thought it was a congratulatory one re his hard work
I know I need to hear more specifics from the school ....... but any advice ?
