Standards and Achievement How do we do it? • 1:1 meetings, intervention & support lessons, extra lessons after school, assemblies, external speakers, grade reports, indicative GCSE grades. • PiXL membership x 700+ = 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%
Standards and Achievement National Curriculum Levels to GCSE Grades L3 = GCSE G L4 = GCSE F L5 = GCSE E L6 = GCSE D L7 = GCSE C L8 = GCSE B 3 levels of progress factor

Standards and Achievement Individual Target Setting
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 8 = English 5a = GCSE grade E1 Student ‘A’ in July of Year 9 = D2 Student ‘A’ in July of Year 10 = C3 Student ‘A’ in July of Year 11 = C1 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.
