Academic Progress


Expected Progress - 1 Pearson Step

Progress - 1 sub-step


Explanation - For Primary, the range is age related.  Each set of age related expectations are broken down into sub-divisions, i.e. 1 Emerging, 1 Developing, 1 Secure.  To make expected progress, they have to complete all 3 sub-divisions in an academic year.


Non-Academic Progress


Progress is based on individual need and will not look the same for every pupil.  For example, some pupils arrive with us with very little or no attendance at main stream, therefore if their attendance is substantially increased and they are engaging in school, this could be good progress for a particular child.


For some children, they may not have left their house or attended a school for some time.  Any engagement out of the house would be good progress.


Some pupils behaviour presents a barrier to engaging well in the classroom.  Any engagement with the Youth Team or working 1:1 with various staff, with short periods in the classroom would be good progress.


Expected progress would be if a pupil's attendance is improving and is engaging well in class and with the curriculum.


For some pupils, we offer extended work experience or alternative provision when they are not succeeding within the centres.  If they engage well with this provision this would mean they would make expected progress.


We feel that if students leave us with an offer of employment, education or training post 16 they will have made expected progress.
