    Lady Lumley’s Loves Learning

    dave brailsford s philosophy
    Dave Brailsford’s philosophy

    “Firstly, you need a team with the skills and motivation to succeed”

    “Secondly, you need to understand what you want to achieve”

    “Thirdly, you need to understand where you are now”

    “Then, you need to put a plan in place to see how you can get from where you are now to what you want to achieve”

    “Also, it’s important to understand the ‘aggregation of marginal gains’.  Put simply….how small improvements in a number of different aspects of what we do can have a huge impact to the overall performance of the team

    Whole School Level

    Subject Level

    Student Level (the most important)

    ks2 to ks4 the real picture
    KS2 to KS4 – the real picture
    • The next slide shows every student in Lady Lumley’s young person's KS4 scores plotted against the expected KS4 score based on their KS2 scores from 5 years earlier.
    • What do you expect it to look like?

    Positive value-added

    This is actual data about Lady Lumley’s students from 2010.

    Negative value-added

    Expected KS4 score calculated from KS2 average point score


    Targets are not a PREDICTION they are an INDICATION.

    • If you (as a student) and we (as teachers and parents) are doing our job right, you should meet your target and even exceed it.

    All these people have exceeded their target grades

    Expected KS4 score calculated from KS2 average point score

    where do the targets come from
    Where do the Targets come from?

    We use a national system for setting targets.

    This compares us with the top 25% of schools nationally

    Predicts a student’s GCSE grades based upon their prior attainment at Key Stage 2 and 3.

    what does this mean for my child
    What does this mean for my child?

    It is a guideline for your child’s attainment at GCSE.

    Students and teachers can strive to exceed targets.

    Two assessed pieces of work every half term enable us to track student performance closely.

    Students who are showing signs of struggling in a subject can be identified more readily and supported.


    All exams will take place at the end of the course and form part of the overall GCSE grade.

    It is important that you know the dates of any exams and controlled assessments and avoid booking holidays or medical appointments.

    controlled assessments
    Controlled Assessments

    Controlled assessments have replaced coursework in many subjects.

    The assessments are carried out under exam style conditions, throughout the course.

    The results count towards the final GCSE grade.

    • TARGET GRADE - the minimum grade that you should aim to achieve in the examinations at the end of Year 11. It is based both on prior attainment that is achieved at the end of Key Stages 2 and 3.
    • CURRENT GRADE – the GCSE grade that you achieved based on actual assessed pieces of work.At this stage in Year 10 this may be lower than Target/Forecast.
    • FORECAST GRADE – the GCSE grade that your teachers expect you to achieve by the end of Year 11 based on performance so far.
    • ATTITUDE TO LEARNING - Your attitude to learning.
    • The grades are: 1 = excellent, 2 = good, 3 = some concerns, 4 = serious concerns

    • General concerns/questions- Sarah Monkman/Lorraine Phippen
    • Attend consultation evenings and Parent Forum meetings
    • Student attendance at school…….
    • This is Simon
    • He has 90% attendance
    • Is that good?
    • What does this mean?
    • Simon thinks this is pretty good.
    • So do his parents, are they right?
    • 90%attendance = ½ day missed - every week!!
    • (Would your boss like you to be off work this



    Absent half a day every week


    Lets look a little closer…..

    1 school year at 90%

    = 4 whole weeks of lessons MISSED!!


    What impact might this have on Simon?

    Research suggests that 17 missed school days a year = GCSE grade drop in achievement (DfES)

    The greater the attendance the

    greater Simon’s achievement.


    The school wants to aim for a target of above 95%

    Be part of the success story!


    We want to work in partnership; the students, parents and the school working together in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for each individual.
