This category indicates a student's attainment grade based on the current term’s work in relation to national norms. It is perfectly reasonable for this to alter from term to term as the work or topic being covered might be more or less complex for the individual student to master.
|Graded A* - U|
This is a level for the student to aim for by the end of the Key Stage/course. The target should not change from term to term as it is for students to aim for. With negotiation between the student and teacher, it may, however, be increased to ensure a suitable level of challenge for all.
This combines the student’s current performance and target grade to show whether the student is likely to reach their target by the end of the Key Stage/course, based on their teacher making a professional judgement combining all known factors.
|Exceeding Target||the student is likely to achieve higher than their target grade.|
|On Target||the student is likely to achieve their target grade.|
|Under Target||the student is unlikely to achieve their target grade.|
Students should aim to attain their target level by the end of Key Stage 4 (the end of Year 11) or the end of the course (in the case of students who are fast-tracking a subject).
The current performance and target do not need to be the same for students to be ‘on target’ as this is a prediction as to where the student will finish the Key Stage/course.
Outstanding, Good, Satisfactory or Cause for Concern is used to show a student’s attitude to a subject and covers issues such as punctuality to lessons, being well prepared and working in a focused way.
Outstanding, Good, Satisfactory or Cause for Concern is used to indicate the quality of class work, homework and coursework produced relative, to the student’s ability.
If the work a student is producing (both in and out of lessons) is not in line with their target, this is unlikely to be Outstanding or Good. The use of Satisfactory and Cause for Concern should indicate the degree to which the work is not at the expected level.
Outstanding, Good, Satisfactory or Cause for Concern indicates whether homework is completed to a high standard and/or handed in on time.
Satisfactory would indicate that one piece of homework has not been completed and/or handed in on time. Cause for Concern would indicate that this is the case for two or more pieces of homework.
If applicable, Good, Satisfactory or Cause for Concern indicates whether coursework (controlled assessment) is completed to a suitable level and/or handed in on time.
A Satisfactory would indicate that the student’s coursework is either not fully up-to-date or is not yet at their target grade. A Cause for Concern would indicate that it is a long way off being complete or has simply not been handed in for the teacher to monitor progress and assess the work.
