Understanding Pupil Performance in Primary schools

There is one given in education and that is nothing stays the same for very long. At the moment the education community is experiencing some of the most significant periods of change for some time. 2016 saw the introduction of new statutory assessment measures across the primary phase and an increased focus on the performance of specific groups by Ofsted.

Pupil performance is a key indicator used by the government to support and develop initiatives to ensure that every child in every school achieves the best possible educational outcomes. Governors play a key role in the leadership and management of schools. An effective governing body provides challenge and is able to monitor the impact of school improvement initiatives across all key stages, to do this governors need up to date information and a clear understanding of the measures being used to measure pupil performance across the school.

This training session will:

  • Clarify the current requirements for statutory assessment at all key stages.
  • Explore sources of data available to governors and how they can be used.
  • Look at “Diminishing differences” and discuss how the pupil premium should be used to promote equality of opportunity.
  • Outline the revised Ofsted framework and the responsibility of governors to support improvements in achievement.
