Assessment, Attainment, Progress and End of Key Stage

Assessment of new pupils

All new pupils are baselined after a 6 week bespoke induction and assessment window. A Personalised Learning Plan (PLP) is created which incorporates all pertinent information and priority targets. Pupils enter school with differing experiences some pupils have not attended any pre-school settings. A range of school professionals and healthcare professionals work with the pupil to develop a personalized approach. All progress made through our holistic curriculum is shard on a pupils assessment profile (PAP).
Significant changes in the profile of intake

Data shows that our intake has become more complex over the past 3 years. Evaluation of our assessment system demonstrated a need for a more holistic approach to ensure we accurately assessed and monitored our complex pupils.

Our assessment portfolio is being adapted to include assessments which inform and track very small steps progress across a wider more holistic model such as Quest for Learning and The Engagement Profile
Attainment and progress of pupils

Early Years Foundation Stage (2 pupils)

All pupils entering Foundation Stage are working within the‘emerging’ band in relation to national expectations. When pupils first join EYFS the class team spend the first half term completing baselining assessments which is then recorded on their individual personalised assessment profiles in order to support tracking of progress from their starting points.
Analysis- for pupils making good or very good progress.

At the end of KS2 the data set (2 pupils) is too small to make conclusions regarding pupil achievement.

Pupils do better in Listening at the End of KS 3 when compared to Speaking with more pupils making very good progress. Pupils do similarly well in Reading and Writing. At the End of Key Stage 4 pupils do equally well in Speaking and Listening followed by Writing and Reading.

Analysis - for pupils making good or expected progress.

At the end of KS2 the data set (2 pupils) is too small to make conclusions regarding pupil achievement.

Pupils do similarly well at the end of Key Stages 2 and 4 across all maths aspects. At the end of KS3 pupils do best in Geometry and Statistics. Fewer numbers of pupils make very good progress in Number and Measurement. Pupils perform equally well across Number, Geometry and Measurement and although fewer number of pupils make very good progress in Statistics, this is because only those who are working above P8 are assessed in statistics and they will not access the full programme of study as the other aspects of maths are more meaningful in supporting them in achieving their learning outcomes.
Progress through Key Stages

Based on annual tracking relating to End of Key Stage targets (although pupils progress is monitored formally against expectations twice a year).
English

Key Stage 2 (17 pupils)

All pupils have made good or very good progress in English.
Key Stage 3 (28 pupils)

All pupils have made good or very good progress in Listening& Reading. Pupils do less well in Writing than Reading which reflects national norms. Pupils do least well in Speaking with few pupils making very good progress.
Key Stage 4 (6 pupils)

All pupils have made good or very good progress in English.
Maths

Key Stage 2 (17 pupils)

All pupils in Key Stage 2 have made good or very good progress (with the exception of measurement 16/17 pupils). 2 pupils do less well in Geometry than in Number and this will be a focus during teacher progress meetings.
Key Stage 3 (28 pupils)

All pupils in Key Stage 3 have made good or very good progress in Measurement and Statistics. Fewer number of pupils are making good orvery good progress in Number (25/28) & Geometry (26/28).
Key Stage 4 (11 pupils)

All pupils in Key Stage 4 have made good or very good progress in Geometry and Measurement. 10/11 (90%) pupils have made good or very good progress in Number. 4/6 pupils made good progress in Statistics.
Intervention

Individual pupil assessments on B Squared are completed twice a year. Class teachers meet with assessment leads and discuss progress towards targets at least once a term. Where a pupil is not on track to make expected progress it is considered if and which intervention should be used. These may include being focussed teaching within class or accessing a more bespoke intervention. Pupil participation in interventions are recorded and evaluated on the school’s provision map. It may be that the assessment tool used is not appropriate to capture small steps progress in which case an alternative and more purposeful tool will be used e.g. Quest for Learning. All assessment information relating to a pupil is recorded on their Personalised Assessment profiles and in their Key Information File.
Assessment information relating to groups of pupils

Pupils with EAL/CLA or who access pupil premium funding are not compared against pupils who are not as it is not meaningful or relevant to do so. Rather pupil progress it tracked individually for these pupils and interventions identified as appropriate.
Accreditation

All pupils completed ASDAN transition challenge.

Progress 8
Our pupils are working significantly below age related expectations and as such progress 8 is not a relevant measure of progress (from the end of KS2 to the end of KS4). Rather, progress is tracked individually using the school's menu of assessment. More information on how we assess pupil progress can be downloaded below.
