1 Welcome to our Year 10 target setting evening March 2014

2 What we will cover this evening? Distribution of progress report and attendance data Explanation of progress report and attendance data Key dates in the Year 10 calendar Next steps and the sixth form Opportunity to set targets

3 What does the progress report contain? The autumn grade: the grade your daughter was assessed as working at in November 2013 A current grade: the grade your daughter is currently working at A predicted grade : the grade teachers feel your daughter will achieve in 2015 based on her current rate of progress A challenging target grade (the minimum grade we feel she should aim to achieve) % attendance to date Some subjects (e.g. BTEC Science) assess progress as pass, merit and Distinction. GCSE grades go from A*-U Where a current grade is lower than the autumn grade, please remember that subjects assess different skills and knowledge at each assessment point Where the predicted grade is lower than the target grade, action plans will have been created in each subject area

4 Why does this report matter? An important milestone towards summer exams They tell us as teachers where your strengths are and what you need to do to improve We are now over half way through the first year of GCSE studies so these grades will help to focus minds
