progression as a setting


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I need some help.

 

How do you all show progression of your setting and demonstrate that what you have implemented has improved development or narrowed the gap?

 

I don't know where to start to break down my cohort and demonstrate my knowledge in a. Setting overview.

 

Thank you ?

Over time - year on year improvement in % attaining expected or above as a whole, and then groups boys/girls, summer born, PPF entitiled, SEN, major ethnic groups attaining levelly, not one group substantially better than others.

I keep annotated data to show what we have done about ensuring different groups stay in-line with the majority, eg one year we had a drift among our Spring born girls, so we put a brief intervention in place to bring them back on track, last year our boys' calculating was not so good as the girls, so we put a heavier weighting on maths outside and assigned an adult to support that activity.

Take a look at the Ofsted schedule for ideas of groups to track.

Within a cohort I look at intake data to identify any particular groups who appear to be 'at risk' - this year it's the high-fliers (all 2 of them!) who need careful watching so they don't just coast along. Then I track them through the year as well as groups shown above. I also keep an eye on children who may be affected by other interventions in the family - mum doing an in-house ESOL course for example - so I can show the impact of these.

Mid-year (now!) the whole year group takes a check on progress and we put interventions into place if we need to. This year we are focussing on our children who aren't retaining phase 2 of Letters and Sounds - phonics is a BIG deal just now!

Sure there's loads more ways and others will give ideas about those, this is just what I do, and it was OK with Ofsted last half-term.

Thank you so much, this is exactly it, but how do you gain all this information and where do you input it.

 

I have visions of me in the middle of 40 trackers trying to input it on an excel document.

 

But what you are explaining is exactly what I need to do.

 

Will have a read of the document too. Thank you

We commit the grave crime of highlighting developmental matters statements - keep a set for each child - as we observe and work alongside the children. This gives a reference point for a sense of where each child is and how they are progressing.

My school uses Target Tracker as a data handling tool, so so do I now. I did keep excel files until quite recently and they did the job, but did involve a lot of highlighting of different groups and calculator work to get information that is now a few clicks away.

I'm afraid I don't know about Tapestry, but many people seem to like it a lot.

Incidently - 2 o'clock in the morning is sleeping time!!!

I bet more of us do this, than those that don't :D:D to me it's a very visual way and the only way in a pre-school playgroup that doesn't have 'all singing all dancing' systems like those in a school - added to it the great bonus of the staff understand it :1b
