This is a quick overview of your child’s current progress against a baseline grade for each subject. A positive value indicates how many levels of progress your child has made in the subject since the start of Year 7.  By the end of Year 9 students are expected to make at least 2 levels of progress.

Progress from Year 7 Baseline

Progress from Year 7 Baseline ks4

KEY

  • Expected 2 whole levels by the end of KS3
  • Expected 3 whole levels by the end of KS4

This is a quick overview of your child’s current progress against a baseline grade for each subject. A positive value indicates how many levels of progress your child has made in the subject since the start of Year 7.  By the end of Key Stage 4 students are expected to make at least 3 levels of progress.

Detailed Progress

Detailed Progress ks4

KEY

  • Purple = Above Target
  • Green = On Target
  • Yellow = Below Target
  • Red = Well Below Target

This table shows the following: Year 7 Baseline level (where they started), Expected level (where they should at least get to at the end of the Key Stage), Above Expected level and their Working at level (which is taken from the units/topics/assignments and may not be the whole course).

Also, there is a teacher’s prediction (teacher’s professional judgement for the end of the whole course) in each subject. Furthermore, on the right hand side is a breakdown of the units/topics/assignments covered in each subject.

You may notice that the working at level is higher than the teacher prediction, this is usually the case when all the units/topics/assignments have not been covered, so please don’t be too alarmed and refer to the teacher’s prediction.  Moreover, if your son/daughter is studying BTEC courses their Working at Level may show a U grade until all of the units have been completed.  Please refer to the teachers prediction.

Finally, there may be some grades showing for subjects that the student has not completed at the moment, but they will be doing in the future.  Teachers have put in a prediction based on their knowledge of the student, indicating the likely outcome.
