Student Achievement

Park View School review the curriculum and attainment to ensure students are able to access nationally recognised accreditation; this not only allows them to achieve within the national success measures but to achieve a range of qualifications suited to their interests and abilities.

Students in Key Stage 4 at Park View School had access to up to 7 qualifications at GCSE level. This year we have increased this to 10 different qualifications at GCSE, with students now able to select option choices in both Year 10 and 11.

There were 13 students in the 2017 Year 11 cohort.

46% (6 students) of Year 11 students attained 5 A*-Gs’ at GCSE or equivalent.

15% (2 students) of Year 11 students attained 5 A*-C’s including English and Maths.

23% (3 students) attained a grade 4+ in GCSE maths and English.

100% of students attained at least 1 GCSE

Some students attained over 10 nationally recognised qualifications.

Key Points

Context

Working Below Age Expectations:

Over 60% of students entering Park View School are working at a level below what is expected based upon age and KS2 data.

Reliability:

All students are baselined upon entry to establish an accurate starting point. Assessment systems are regularly moderated with outstanding mainstream provisions.

Assessment:

The revised 5A’s in Maths and English and the new assessment system in Science are now embedded. Moderation with a variety of schools, including mainstream, is a regular occurrence now in the core subjects.

Priorities

Literacy:

Ensure progress in writing matches that in reading through targeted intervention strategies.

Pupil Premium:

Continue to measure the progress of this group of students (88%+) to ensure that funding is effectively utilised.

Moderation:

We have a strong programme of moderation, it can be developed further by developing more links with outstanding mainstream schools in the North East, particularly for KS 4 maths and English assessments.

Intervention

At Park View School we recognise the value of intensive, personalised intervention and have invested heavily in daily, timetabled maths and English intervention for all students.  At the end of every half term students are assessed using the 5A’s programme which enables the maths and English lead staff to pinpoint key areas of weakness/development.  From these assessments students are grouped into very small groups of 3/4 based on target area.  Work is planned on each students individual targets over a half term period in order to plug gaps and accelerate progress. The process is repeated half termly and students moved into alternative groups depending on the findings of the assessments.  All staff are involved in the delivery of intervention under the guidance of subject leads.
