2 Why Track Pupils At All?

3 The National Curriculum has charged schools with producing successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.

4 Why Track Pupils At All? The National Curriculum has charged schools with producing successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve. The Egglescliffe Commitment states that the school aims to give everyone the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential.

5 Why Track Pupils At All? The National Curriculum has charged schools with producing successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve. The Egglescliffe Commitment states that the school aims to give everyone the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. Progress made in lessons links directly with GCSE grades obtained in exams.

6 Why Involve Parents?

7 Engaging parents is beneficial to pupils attitudes to learning and their achievement levels. In some respects, it is the SIMPLE FACT THAT PARENTS ARE SEEN TO BE INTERESTED that acts as the prime motivator. Desforges & Abouchaar, 2003

8 Why Involve Parents? Although the degree and power of this influence wanes gradually during a pupils progress through the education system, that influence remains a factor throughout. Desforges & Abouchaar, 2003

9 Why Involve Parents?

10 What Data Is Used To Track Pupils?

11 At Key Stage 3 (years 7, 8 and 9) National Curriculum levels are used (as in primary school).

12 What Data Is Used To Track Pupils? At Key Stage 3 (years 7, 8 and 9) National Curriculum levels are used (as in primary school). At Key Stage 4 (years 10 and 11) GCSE grades are used.

32 Mathematics – Number & Algebra What Does A Particular Level Mean?

33 Mathematics – Number & Algebra Level 4 Pupils use their understanding of place value to multiply and divide whole numbers by 10 or 100. When solving number problems, they use a range of mental methods of computation with the four operations, including mental recall of multiplication facts up to 10 x 10 and quick derivation of corresponding division facts. They use efficient written methods of addition and subtraction and of short multiplication and division. They recognise approximate proportions of a whole and use simple fractions and percentages to describe these. They begin to use simple formulae expressed in words. What Does A Particular Level Mean?

Level 5 Pupils use their understanding of place value to multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals. They order, add and subtract negative numbers in context. They use all four operations with decimals to two places. They solve simple problems involving ratio and direct proportion. They calculate fractional or percentage parts of quantities and measurements, using a calculator where appropriate. They construct, express in symbolic form and use simple formulae involving one or two operations. They use brackets appropriately. They use and interpret coordinates in all four quadrants.

70 How Do We Track At Key Stage Four? At the end of each half term a current grade and an aspirational target are given. Maths CA

71 How Do We Track At Key Stage Four? At the end of each half term a current grade and an aspirational target are given. Maths The current grade is where the pupil is NOW. CA

72 How Do We Track At Key Stage Four? At the end of each half term a current grade and a target are given. Maths The target is an estimate of the best grade that that pupil could gain at the END OF Y11. The current grade is where the pupil is NOW. CA

Maths CA 2 The target is an estimate of the best grade that that pupil could gain at the END OF Y11. The current grade is where the pupil is NOW. A measure is taken each half term to see how far a pupil is from their target.

104 Summary

105 Academic tracking is not an exact science, it is an art form.

106 Summary It is not about seeing which pupil won the race, but about ensuring that all pupils have run as far as they were capable of running.

107 Summary The most important part of the whole tracking system is the dialogue between teacher/form tutor/parent and pupil about maximising their progress or achieving their full potential.
