Pupil Progress

Pupil Progress 2018-19

We are pleased to report that our students have made good progress because:
• The vast majority of students in Key stages 3 & 4 have met or exceeded the expectations we have set in reading, writing and number.
• The number of students who have exceeded the expectations has increased this year in all areas.
• 88 % of IEP targets, which are related to students’ EHCP outcomes, were met.

During this academic year teachers have assessed student progress at 3 points in December, April and July using the Bsquared assessment tool. A target for expected progress was set at the start of the year according the students starting point for the year and their curriculum pathway.
