Behaviour and Expectations Mr Lewis Head of Year 10
Behaviour and Expectations • Year 10 are currently a well behaved year group who respond well to support and advice from the school. I hope this can be maintained with close support received from home. • Attendance, Behaviour, Commitment • It has been a pleasure to see pupils getting involved in school clubs and activities within the school and participating in school life with pride and developing the school community. • The expectation is that ALL students will achieve a minimum of 5 A* -C GCSE grades at the end of Year 11. This can only be done by commitment and effort from the students, the staff and parental support • Please feel free to email myself email@example.com or the relevant form tutor Griffith, Newlands , Harvey, Tarawally, Lewis, Kerley, or Joshi @shirley.croydon.sch.uk

Standards and Achievement Mr Templeman-Wright Deputy Headteacher
Standards and Achievement Key Points: How do we do it – strategies that deliver success for all? • PiXL membership x 600+ = schools network with our own PiXL Associate • Our targets for students come from ‘FFT D’ estimates (top 25% Nationally) note ‘school’s actual 2013 results = value added factor – FFTD – 85% (5+ A* - C passes) actual 99.4% = +14.4% factor and FFTD 63% inc. English and Maths, actual 63% • FFTD Notice: Student estimates may change due to the inclusion of a new ‘output area classification’ factor • Individual One to one meetings with students x 3 per year to review progress (Yr.9 x 2) • We issue grade reports x 3 per year to monitor and report progress which we internally monitor on a further 3 occasions per year. We state ‘current performance’ and FFT D estimates • In addition we offer: One to one and small group teaching and support, additional lessons afterschool, additional GCSE equivalent options, bespoke timetables, early entry in Maths and English (iGCSE V AQA Homeboard issue), outstanding teaching and a whole school commitment to achieving success.
Standards and Achievement Key Points - continued: • We focus on reporting ‘indicative’ grades i.e. C1, C2, C3 • We focus on a minimum of two sub-levels progression per year e.g. • Student ‘A’ in July of Year 9 = English C1 • Student ‘A’ in July of Year 10 = B2 • Student ‘A’ in July of Year 11 = A3. • We expect students to: complete all set homework, read and action all assessment comments by their teachers, attend extra classes, complete all classwork and ask for help. It is a positively interactive learning collaboration to ensure all students make a minimum of 3 levels of progress re: KS2 (L5 – E grade) and KS4 (L8 -B grade).
