Growing and Developing at Cardinal Newman


In these leaflets (one for each year group) you will find a description of a Cardinal Newman Learner through your child's year group and a description of our expectations. Once that is all in place, the third element of the leaflet comes in to play. This is a description of the current National Curriculum levels and national expectations by year group. Your child’s teachers will talk about these levels and where your child is performing at Parent Teacher interviews and in the end of year report. We hope that you will find this helpful in understanding your child’s academic progress. The teachers will also discuss and report on your child as a Cardinal Newman Learner and the key areas of growth and development – we believe that these are crucial areas which underpin academic success and our mission to educate the whole child.
