Year 7 Key Stage 3 Supporting Progress
Purpose Examine the way that KS3 targets are set Explain how we track Student Progress Outline the information that will typically be found on your child's report
Data We Use Prior Attainment – Key Stage 2 Year 6 Teacher information CAT Tests Fisher Family Trust projections Year 7 Teacher assessments
Standard Age Score (SAS): This mechanism removes the inherent differences of chronological age across Year 7 when the test is taken. Therefore students of different ages who gain the same SAS have done equally well. Mean CAT result: The average score for the three components: Verbal, Quantitative and Non-Verbal.

Why do we need targets? So teachers & tutors know when to praise / encourage So parents know when to praise / encourage So students know what to expect of themselves

Tutor comment: Unnamed should take great confidence from this report. She has clearly worked hard to achieve at least her target grade in all subjects. Unnamed is focussed in lessons and reflects on what she has learnt. Both of these skills help her to complete tasks set effectively and benefit from learning opportunities. During tutor time, Unnamed is by nature one of the quieter members of the group; she has however worked very well with the other Year 7 and 8 girls to complete the World Cup tutor challenge. To ensure Unnamed continues this good start to her time at Nailsea School I would encourage her to join extra-curricular clubs in Year 8. This will help her develop her confidence in working with other students and allow her to apply some of the skills she has learnt during lessons in new and exciting challenges. Target for improvement: 1. To decide which extra-curricular clubs to join in the Autumn term. This will allow Unnamed to apply the skills she has learnt in lesson time to practical experiences and develop her confidence in working with others. 2. To improve her current score in Technology to 4B by the end of Year 7. Unnamed can achieve this target by remembering to ask questions throughout the lesson and thus deepen her subject understanding.
Thank you for attending this evening Any questions?
