What is Progress Tracker? A reporting system updated and published to parents/carers six times every academic year Progress tracker reports on the ACADEMIC PROGRESS and EFFORT of every student from Year 10 to Year 13
Why do we use it? To drive learning and achievement
Students, parents/carers, Senior Leadership Team, Curriculum Directors, subject teachers,Learning Managers and Professional Learning Mentors are better informed Individual students, groups and departments can be tracked against predictions based on their prior attainment and current performance It identifies where intervention is required....before it is too late!
Progress Tracker and the 4 I Model Information gathering Identify Systematic Intervention Measured Impact Information gathering – Data input creates an interactive database Individual students are identified and tracked against predictions based on their prior attainment and current performance Systematic intervention then follows in order to get them ‘back on track’ Impact measured by results of next Progress tracker
Attainment Grade Staff predict…… ……..working at their current rate and performance, what level/grade will each student achieve at the END of the appropriate key stage or course
E1 Star Students Always invest in their own learning Are always ready to learn Always listen to teachers and other students Make excellent contributions to the lesson Work well independently Always hand homework in on time Will go that extra mile with extra research, reading etc
E2 Very Promising Students Almost always invest in their own learning Are usually ready to learn Usually listen to teachers and other students Usually make a good contribution to the lesson Try to work independently Usually hand in homework on time Sometimes do extra reading or research
E3 Hard working students Are positive about their learning Generally try to be ready to learn Generally try to listen to teachers and other students Generally try to contribute to the lesson Are making progress with working independently Generally try to hand in homework on time Have done some extra reading or research
E4 Wake up call students Are beginning to neglect their College work Are sometimes not ready to learn Sometimes do not listen to their teacher or other students Sometimes do not get involved in the lesson Do not work independently Do not attempt to do any extra research or reading Exhibit behaviour which disrupts their learning Are in danger of not doing as well as they could
E5 Target students Frequently interrupt lessons Slow down the learning of other students as well as themselves Don’t do enough work in lessons Often arrive late Get easily distracted Refuse reasonable requests Fail to hand in homework
An E5 is a serious concern and leads to action. It is not awarded easily or as a result of a one-off incident. It is the end of a process which has involved the subject teacher in ALL of the following processes: Student informed that they are likely to be awarded an E5 if an improvement is not made Faculty detentions. Curriculum Director involved in looking at different teaching strategies to meet the needs of the student Learning Manager involvement Phone call home to parents/carers Meeting with parents/carers and student in the UTC to discuss concerns and agree strategies for improvem ent
Coursework/Homework It is vital to flag up any coursework/homework issues as early as possible Each subject teacher will keep an up to date record of coursework/homework completed/assessed These results will be continually updated on a department database and monitored by the Curriculum Director If students are behind in coursework (c) or homework (h) is not handed in there is a box to alert everyone that there is an issue
Attendance If there is a concern about attendance there is a box to alert everyone that this is an issue.
