Assessment

Pupil Progress 2015 – 2016

At Fordwater we use a variety of different tools to measure the progress our pupils make.

Progression Guidance

In line with Ofsted criteria, we have measured progression using the progression guidance. This measures progress from the end of KS1 – KS2, KS2 – KS3 and KS3 – KS4. The guidance defines the level of progress we should be expecting pupils to make regardless of their levels of need.

  • From KS1 – KS2: 75% of progress made was in the upper quartile and 25% the median.
  • From KS2 – KS3: 32% of progress made was in the upper quartile, 32% the median and 36% the lower quartile.
  • From KS3 – KS4: 46% of progress made was in the upper quartile and 54% the median.

CASPA

We also enter our data onto CASPA which compares progress made by pupils at Fordwater with those in many other schools. Data was analysed on all pupils in KS1 – KS4

Progress by groups

We also measure the progress made by different groups of pupils such as ASD, PMLD, Gender, Ethnicity, Children Looked After and pupils who receive Free School Meals. The data shows us that there is no significant difference in the progress made by any of these groups.

IEP Targets

All our pupils have at least three IEP targets per term; one literacy/communication, one numeracy/cognition and one PSHE. Achievement of these targets is outstanding.

91% of all IEP targets were achieved 2015 – 2016
