Using Educational Outcomes to inform Curriculum Planning Aims: To give an overview on the workings of Educational Outcomes To demonstrate how Educational Outcomes can be used to improve performance To demonstrate how Educational Outcomes can be used to seek out and share good practice between schools
Why use Educational Outcomes? Gives an overview of outcomes from your school over the last four years Ability to compare schools against similar schools (using KS2 APS) To seek out good practice form other schools Interactive Informative Most Importantly – It is easy to use!
How to use Educational Outcomes www.ssatrust.org.uk Log-in Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and click on E A number of resources will come up, click on Educational Outcomes Click on Educational Outcomes online 2010 Enter School name in search Then click on Name of School
You can then see the performance of your school against many different measures Headline figures from previous year Performance over 4 Years. Blue (5A*-C EM) ISV (In school variance). This a measure of varying grades that students achieve between subjects in a specific school. CVA judgement and confidence intervals Performance of English and Maths Departments New addition is the EBacc. Students who would have achieved this in 2010 Jesson Value added as a percentage (eg Expected from Jesson (5A*-C for 2010 was 74% we got 63% = -14
Why is this a useful tool to use in school? Clear graphics that indicate performance over the four years against both 5A*-C measures All headline figures given in one snapshot Inform discussions about ISV, which departments need to improve / which are out performing others Inform discussions about “matching students” in Maths and English – looking at profiles of like students in the new cohort Inform discussions about “matching students” with MFL and Humanities
Comparing against other schools This can be done against: –Schools Nationally –Geographical Area (probably most useful) –Local Authority (probably already have contact with schools in own authority) –Specialism –Year of Designation (when the school became a specialist school)
Comparing with schools Enter School name in search Then click on Name of School Click on school summary view
All schools nationally are shown below. National Levels of Outcomes over the last four years At the cross over of the lines will be your school. Based on KS2 APS (Horizontal axis) against KS4 outcomes (vertical axis) 5A*-C measure Different graphs will appear depending upon which measure you want to compare. 5A*-C EM, A*-C English and Maths or English Baccalaureate
Comparing against schools in a geographical area To do this you need to filter out your geographical area If you want apply a filter you need to click on “Apply a filter Choose any group / groups to filter by clicking on them, then click to apply filter
Enter school name again and we will go back to this screen Click on “Show school on summary view”. To see comparisons against schools of your chosen filter(s) Each Red dot represents a school in geographical area. Schools to contact are schools that are higher up the vertical line from the cross The graph changes against each measure
How has this been used to inform Curriculum Planning. We visited a school in Durham who had a similar intake than ourselves but were out performing ourselves. We decided to incorporate and adapt their pathways curriculum. Route 1 - high achievers complete English and Maths in Year 10. Focus on higher grades. Introduce A/S courses Route 2 –C / D borderline students. Route 3 – students who would become disaffected and risk losing. Package in Year 10 that allows passes at English and Maths, as well as 2 days work placement
Impact of Pathways Route 1 – all achieved C’s or above at the end of Year 10 and now focussing on achieving A* to A grades in Maths and English Route 1 staff focussing on higher grades in all subjects Route 2 focussed intervention with Maths and English. Impact to be seen in August. Route 3 – 10 of the 12 students identified have achieved 5A*-C grades Attendance of these students increased from Key Stage 3.

We adapted a system that was being used by another school in Durham.
Impact of Data and Tracking Staff are fully aware of the crucial students to reach our EM All of the key students have SLT mentor Targeted intervention to meet the skills deficits of individual students Hope to see the benefits in the summer.
Subject Specific - Mathematics Maths department was not performing as highly as it should have in connection with predictions and estimates. Using Educational Outcomes a school in Sunderland was identified that performed highly with a similar intake Visits and discussions took place between the two departments
Impact of Subject Specific Mathematics Results Year% A*-C’s 200735 200838 200935 201049 2010 – saw a massive rise and surpassed FFT estimate of 40% and currently predicting mid 40% for this year.
