At Erasmus Darwin Academy we monitor student progress rigorously. The data we collect on students is analysed and evaluated at all levels of leadership. This data is also used to plan our teaching and learning next steps.
WHAT DATA IS COLLECTED?
In all stages of education at Erasmus Darwin Academy we collect the following information to enable us to monitor student progress:
A current working at grade A professional end of year predicted grade (this is our indicator to judge whether a student is on track or not) An attitude to learning grade An intervention strategy which will be implemented to get the student back on track. This piece of data is only entered where a student is identified as not being on track
HOW OFTEN IS DATA COLLECTED?
The number of times data is collected varies depending on the stage of education. The information can be seen below:
Development Stage (Years 7 and 8) – data is collected 2 times per year
Qualification Stage (Years 9, 10 and 11) – data is collected 3 times per year
Advanced Stage (Years 12 and 13) – data is collected 3 times per year
Progress reports are issued to parents following each data capture. The progress reports are designed to identify whether students are on track to achieve their end of year target. The information on the progress reports is as follows:
The student’s name and subjects taught In all years (7-11), all students have their end of year 11 target grade The end of year target grade The students attitude to learning grade The students current working at grade The students professional prediction grade An intervention comment (if identified as not being on track)
All students in all stages have a designated evening during the academic year whereby they can discuss their child’s progress with their child’s teachers.
