Attainment & Results
Maplefields Academy Analysis and Evaluation of Pupil Attainment and Progress September 2019 - March 2020
What is expected progress at Maplefields Academy?
After working alongside two outstanding SEMH provisions, we at Maplefields have identified that the expectation of progress in all subjects is 2 sub stages over the academic year. Due to the complex needs of our pupils this sometimes has to be adapted to meet the specific needs of the pupils. Some pupils may progress at a slower rate. We take in to account starting points and rates of learning in their previous setting. We also take a holistic viewpoint that will inform any judgement. Pupils may also have their academic target stretched to 2.5 sub levels in order to accomodate any accelerated progress that may be made due to being academically more able in the context of our school.
Staff set individual targets for students that they teach in all subjects. The targets are set using prior attainment and progress knowledge of the students and using the information from the student profiles. Students are set realistic targets that should be achievable by the end of the year/key stage and also a challenging target which would be possible if the student did not have the challenges to learning that they experience during the year ie absence, family circumstance etc.
The results are RAG rated and this is exceptionally helpful in readily showing which classes and subjects make the most and least progress. The school continues to refine its process in target setting and tracking progress year on year.
