Exam and Assessment Results

 

2015 – 2016  End of Year Report- Outcomes

Strengths

Significant improvements in the number of accreditations gained by our Year 11 leavers. Pupils left with up to 9 qualifications in accredited courses, compared with up to 4 qualifications last year. ( see attached analysis of Year 11 Student Achievement)
The percentage of pupils gaining GCSE qualifications is increased in English- 27% compared to 20% last year, and in Science 20% compared to 10% last year. Maths stands  at 27% compared to 35% last year.
KS2 to KS4  English progress:  47% of pupils made good or better progress form KS2 to KS4
KS2 to KS4  Maths progress:  33% of pupils made good or better progress form KS2 to KS4
KS1 to KS2 English progress:  The two pupils who have attended Mount Tamar since KS1 both made good progress
KS1 to KS2 Maths progress: The two pupils who have attended Mount Tamar since KS1 both made good progress
LAC pupils in Primary have made between 5 and 8 points of progress in Maths and between 2 and 7 points progress in English this year. ( see attached LAC charts )
Overall, across the school, more pupils are working at Age Related Expectations than last year, with some pupils working beyond ARE. The number of pupils working more than one year below ARE is significantly reduced.
Interventions such as Read Write Inc continue to prove effective in Primary with all pupils closing to gap to ARE across the year in reading and spelling
Pupils are more involved in regular discussions about their progress, and areas of strength and areas for development through the use of Pupil Progress Review meetings, PPRs.
Pupils know their targets and how they are progressing towards them through graphs in the front of their books
Pupils understand more clearly how their books are marked and have clear guidance in their books
Classroom displays celebrate positive learning experiences and allow pupils to see at a glance how they have improved.
Ongoing moderation, both internal and external has enabled staff to gain more confidence in levelling pupils’ work and exemplar files are available for staff to consult  and discuss.
Staff attend hub meetings to ensure they are up to date with current research and practise and to network with teachers in other local schools.

Development Points

Ensure all pupils leave with qualifications or accreditation in English and Maths- particular monitoring required for those on placements and offsite.
Ensure all pupils in Year 6 are well prepared for their STAS in May, through booster sessions and in class preparation for exam techniques.
LAC pupils progress in Secondary is not in line with NON LAC pupils. Several of these pupils are our high need, package pupils , some of whom are on part time timetables. We need to monitor their progress and ensure end of year targets are realistic
Introduce Read Write Inc Language and Literacy to support the development of writing and to ensure pupils are sufficiently stretched and challenged to improve outcomes
Look more closely at the Risk and Resilience analysis to ensure realistic end of year targets are set for our high risk pupils
Ensure staff are more accountable for the progress of the pupils they teach-  TS to collect and analyse data from staff to update and create a whole school data tracker, ensuring staff are more aware of the progress and needs of their pupils and issues are brought to light before the 6 week accountability meetings  to minimise lost learning.
2 staff to attend Maths Mastery Hub meetings as part of PTSA
Head of Maths to undertake TSST course to ensure good leadership of maths across the whole school.

Actions

Intervention provided for LAC pupils in Secondary to accelerate their progress
Staff to update and populate their own sheets for the whole school tracker and send half termly to TS for whole school analysis and actions required.
Develop links with MAP staff to support and work with our staff to share experiences and strategies to support and accelerate pupils progress

Developments since September 2016- first half term

Risk and Resilience analysis has been updated, with new pupils added and all other data updated accordingly.
End of year targets have been set and communicated to staff according to the Risk and Resilience analysis.
High Risk pupils have been set individual targets based on their level of risk within this category- for example a non attending pupils who is supported at home has been set a lower target than a LAC pupil who is making good progress currently and whose attendance is high.
New whole school tracker distributed to all staff with September starting points  and risk and resilience analysis outcomes in order for end of year targets to be set. EOY Targets pre populated by TS  for English and Maths
Maths Hub meetings attended
TSST training, first 2 days attended
