The OFSTED framework and the Department for Education have this year introduced new performance table measures. There is now a great emphasis on progress rather than attainment only. The key headline measure is now Progress 8, replacing the previous attainment measure of 5 A*-C including English and mathematics.
We at The Hart School firmly believe in measuring success by the progress every single student makes across all of their subjects. This is a measure of the value we add during the students’ educational journey with us, regardless of their ability.
Progress 8 measures the difference between what a student achieves in their subjects and what national benchmarks require them to achieve. A score of zero indicates expected progress has been made. A score below -0.5 is regarded as below the national floor standard.
Key Performance Indicators for Y11 who left in July 2017
Progress 8 Score = -0.02
Average Attainment 8 Score Per Pupil = 45.4
Grade 4 and above in both English & maths GCSEs = 48%
Grade 5 and above in both English & maths GCSEs = 29%
Percentage of pupils entered for the English Baccalaureate at the end of KS4 = 33%
Percentage of pupils who have achieved the English Baccalaureate at the end of KS4 = 16%
Percentage of pupils staying in education or employment after KS4 = 96%
Our next Pupil Premium strategy review will be in May 2019.
Post 16 Performance 2017
The progress pupils have made compared with pupils across the country – A Levels = +0.1, Applied General = +0.2, Tech Level = N/A
The average grade that pupils achieve at KS5 – A levels = 28.5, Applied General = 31.8, Tech Level = N/A
Retention (the proportion of pupils who get to the end of the main programme of study that they enrolled on) – A levels = 100%, Applied General = 100%, Tech Level = N/A
Destinations (percentage of students who continue in education or training, or move on to employment in the year after the end of KS4) – All Education or employment / training destination = 98%, Apprenticeship = 7%
The good outcomes of 2016 have been further improved in 2017 in relation to progress and attainment, with more students continuing to University. There has also been a significant increase in the number of students continuing into Y12. In 2017 78% of students accepted University places
