WHS Mindset Factors affecting Learning
Being prepared for learning - equipment, punctuality and a growth Mindset: ready, prepared and willing to learn
STAR – (Sit up straight, Track the teacher, Answer ready, Respect) conduct in class, towards other learners and members of staff in all learning situations, e.g. group work, individually, in pairs and during assessments
Classwork – quality and completion of work in class including resilience and embracing challenge
Home Learning - effort and challenge in the completion of homework (this could be short homework and/or longer project style homework)
Terms and score: (applied to each factor)
1 Exceptional - Outstanding commitment given to their learning. Always tries hard and perseveres when the challenge and work difficulty increases. Home Learning is always completed and goes well beyond the minimum that is expected. Shows a genuine interest in the subject and independently researches work and asks questions. Always well organised and prepared to learn.
2 Good - Shows a good attitude to their learning. Home Learning is always completed and meets the standards expected for them. They are well organised and give high levels of effort to their learning and generally approach challenging tasks positively.
3 Inconsistent - Their attitude to learning is inconsistent. They do not always give their best effort to learning tasks. Home Learning whilst usually completed, is often not at the standard that would be expected for them, or is often late. They are not always well organised.
4 Causing concern - Does not display a good attitude to their learning. Home Learning is rarely completed on time and is often not at the expected standard for them. Shows little interest in the subject and does not seek to learn independently or ask questions. Organisation is often poor.
PROGRESS TO NATIONAL EXPECTATION GRADE
Student progress is measured against the expected grades that students with a similar KS2 score achieve nationally at the end of year 11. These expectations change annually based on national GCSE results and will be updated each year for our students in the autumn.
The ‘Progress to National Expectation’ column gives an indication of the amount of progress that has been made during the latest reporting period:
On - progress is resulting in a student being on course to achieve the national expectation of students at the end of KS4
Above - progress is very good and the student is likely to exceed the national expectation of students at the end of KS4
Working towards - progress is being made and a student is working towards achieving the national expectation of students at the end of KS4
Below - progress is not currently enough to achieve the national expected grade at the end of KS4
WH Target Grade
WH Target Grades - this is the grade which students should aspire to achieve in that subject by the end of Year 11.
Key Stage 4
At Key Stage 4 grades are broken down into "fine grades", with each grade being suffixed with a, b or c.
a - the grade is in the upper band and could be pushed into a higher grade boundary.
b - the grade is secure.
c - the grade is not secure and could fall into a lower grade boundary.
The Working at Grade is the GCSE grade that students are currently attaining (based on the summative assessment data up to that point).
This is the GCSE grade which subject teachers are ‘projecting’ that students are likely to achieve at the end of Year 11 based on their work and effort so far.
