Entry to Exit Data
The progress our pupils make is judged from when they join us at the start of Year 6 until when they leave use at the end of Year 8. We use GL Assessment to provide externally validation of our pupils' progress.
GL Assessments check pupils’ knowledge, understanding and application in the core subjects, track progress at individual and cohort level and indicate possible gaps in learning. As they are standardised on over 100,000 students, with benchmarks verified each year based on analysis of over half a million pupils, they are a robust tool to help us assess the impact of our curriculum.
For example, the table below demonstrates the progress students leaving us in year 8 in 2021 made compared to their baseline test data in year 6. The data links to the Standard Age Score (SAS) where a score of 100 is the expected score of an ‘average’ pupil in that year group, as based on GL assessment data overviews. This is the fairest way of comparing the performance of students within or across a year group and/or different schools.
