target setting evening 2013 v3

Key Stage 4 Information Evening
Lady Lumley’s Loves Learning
Dave Brailsford’s philosophy
“Firstly, you need a team with the skills and motivation to succeed”
“Secondly, you need to understand what you want to achieve”
“Thirdly, you need to understand where you are now”
“Then, you need to put a plan in place to see how you can get
from where you are now to what you want to achieve”
“Also, it’s important to understand the ‘aggregation of marginal
gains’. Put simply….how small improvements in a number of
different aspects of what we do can have a huge impact to the
overall performance of the team

Talk to the person next to you.

The relationship

INDICATOR of how well you

Form Tutor
The Form Tutor should have an overview of each
student in their tutor group.
Through weekly planner checks and individual
interviews and monitoring of the learning diary tutors
will be able to keep a close check on progress.
Tracking and Monitoring ProgressHow does this work?
Information from staff.
Data generated through pieces of assessed
work each half-term.
Reporting Home- What does this
tell me?
TARGET GRADE - the minimum grade that you should aim to
achieve in the examinations at the end of Year 11. It is based
both on prior attainment that is achieved at the end of Key
Stages 2 and 3.
CURRENT GRADE – the GCSE grade that you achieved
based on actual assessed pieces of work. At this stage in
Year 10 this may be lower than Target/Forecast.
FORECAST GRADE – the GCSE grade that your teachers
expect you to achieve by the end of Year 11 based on
performance so far.
ATTITUDE TO LEARNING - Your attitude to learning.
The grades are: 1 = excellent, 2 = good, 3 = some concerns, 4
= serious concerns
How do we use the information
from reports?
To celebrate success
To reinforce interventions already in place

Student attendance at school…….
 This
is Simon
 He has 90% attendance
 Is that good?
 What does this mean?
Simon thinks this is pretty good.
So do his parents, are they right?
90%attendance = ½ day missed - every week!!
(Would your boss like you to be off work this
Absent half a day every week
Lets look a little closer…..
1 school year at 90%
= 4 whole weeks of lessons
What impact might this have on Simon?
Research suggests that 17 missed school days
a year = GCSE grade drop in achievement
The greater the attendance the
greater Simon’s achievement.
The school wants to aim for a target of above
Be part of the success story!
We want to work in partnership; the students,
parents and the school working together in
order to achieve the best possible outcomes
for each individual.
