Performance Data 2016-17 (Updated May 2017)

Summary:

-2016/17 has been a transition year, with the aim to move away from commercial purchased Curriculum/assessment systems (Bsquared/SOLAR) towards our own bespoke, skill based system with less reliance of statistical predictions/targets.

-This is on track, with new curriculum/assessment to be implemented September 2017 for all Core subjects, as well as PE, Art and PHSE strands.  Remaining subjects will be implemented throughout the 2017/18 academic year.

-Individualised learning and targets were implemented across the school (for Number, Reading and Writing), with each student being tracked rigorously throughout the year (learning reports).

-Moderation was expanded (internal and external) and successfully implemented between Modules 2-4.  Modules 5 and 6 were spent devising the new curriculum and assessment systems and will resume September 2017.

-Speech and Language Targets are set individually by each class’ Speech and Language Therapist.  They are then measured twice a year (January and June) against P-Scales/National Curriculum Outcomes.  Student Speech and Language progress is detailed in annual reports and can be discussed with each Speech and Language Therapist.

-Foundation subjects are recommended to be the focus for next academic year

Speaking and Listening

Whilst students’ individual targets are set by each class’ Speech and Language Therapist, the following details the range and progress of students against National Standards.  For information on students’ individual progress, each class Speech and Language Therapist records and keeps progress and assessment notes.

Foundation Subjects

  • Foundation subjects have been under review this year to identify strengths and areas of improvement within the following areas, Planning, Teaching, Assessment, Evidence of Learning and Curriculum.
  • Foundation subject leaders were required to input assessments for students throughout the year for the first time
  • These assessments highlighted the following systematic strengths and areas for improvement within the realm of curriculum and assessment:
    • Strengths: 
    • All assessments were completed by on time and for each student
    • A range of evidence was viewed (photographs of artworks, observations of performances, recordings of PE skills and reports in newsletter of external events)
    • Most Foundation subject leaders agree that bsquared assessments are no longer fit for purpose and are eager to review and rewrite where necessary
    • Areas for Improvement
    • The reliability of assessments for some Foundation subjects determines that moderation of Foundation assessments must be incorporated into the schools’ moderation program next year
    • Review of curriculum, starting with PE and Art as first steps towards making Foundation subject curriculums more individualized towards our students
    • Revised assessment tracking of student progress to move away from whole group averages towards individual targets

 

The following is a record of student progress in Art, PE, Drama, PHSE and Humanities (where applicable).

Understanding the World

  • Pluto, Neptune and Saturn underwent a trial during Humanities and Science lessons this year, to determine if a ‘Topic’ based approach would lead to increased levels of engagement and relevance to students who primarily do not access suggested programs of study.  This was deemed successful, with per module reviews by key staff and will be continued and formally assessed next academic year.
  • Humanities in Mars and Jupiter was also under review, following targets within class that were adapted from the National Curriculum to ensure relevance and appropriateness.  This curriculum will be changed to reflect this approach in January 2018 and then subsequent formal assessments.

 

Average student progress in Mars, Saturn and Neptune measured against Bsquared outcomes.

 

Students in Pluto, Jupiter and Mars also had their progress measured against individual targets.  Here is there achievement:
