At Key Stage 3, students’ targets are set for all subjects during the Spring Term of Year 7. We have a bespoke based target system using FFT20 as a basis.
At Key Stage 4, students’ targets are set for all subjects during the Spring Term of Year 9, and then reported on in each subsequent term during KS 4. As with KS3 FFT20 is the basis for all targets.
At Key Stage 5, for those starting courses in September 2017, FFT20 is used to set students’ targets in the Autumn Term of Year 12. For Y13 students, ALPS targets are used.
In all instances, the school sets aspirational targets against which we can assess our students’ progress and reports upon their grades in comparison to these targets throughout their studies with us in order to support their progress.
