Year 11 Outcomes Data for Academic Year 2017-18

 

At The Personal Learning Centre we break our outcomes analysis into two distinct phases. Our Phase 1 outcomes relate to a critical part of our work and measure pastoral indicators. We gather evidence each term using the Boxall assessment tool and analyse engagement, resiliency, social ability, behaviour, mental well-being and quality of life. We also record attendance data.

 

Our Phase 2 outcomes are related to academic progress and positive destinations.

 

We gather evidence on academic progress each term, from which we are able to identify and begin to bridge learning gaps. Students are baselined in English and Maths on entry and using those scores we set a target of at least one sub-level of progress per term in every subject. We also set an aspirational target for the end of their Key Stage 3 or 4 which is based on their Key Stage 2 data. This ensures that all staff and students have challenging targets to aim for and that students are pushed to get as close to their aspirational target as they can. We assess and talk in terms of GCSE levels for all of our students.

 

We also gather evidence on attainment, and post 16 destinations. It is clear from our evidence that we can only be successful in phase 2 if phase 1 targets are achieved by our students. It is also very often the case that our remit from the Local Authority and the Schools that we work in partnership with, is sometimes purely to focus on Phase 1 outcomes.

 

 

We had 6 year 11 students attend with us in 2017-18. 5 of the 6 students completed two full terms with us, and one student attended for less than a term.
