Impact on Year 7 Pupils

Please note that progress was effected as school shut in March 2020 following a new assessment system being introduced in January 2020. So the progress is measured on 3 months of data.

Cohort of 9 learners in Year 7.

  Maintaining Emerging Expected Exceeded
Reading 2 (22%) 2 (22%) 4 (44%) 1 (11%)
Maths: Number 5 (55%) 3 (33%) 1 (11%)
Maths: SSM 5 (55%) 1 (11%) 3 (33%)
  • Assuming that progress continued at the same rate for the period of closure, Year 7 pupils in reading, number and shape, space & measure is good, demonstrating the effective use of Year 7 Catch Up Premium at New Siblands.
  • New targets for Maths: SSM were introduced half way through the three month assessment period so pupils were new to these targets and were not able to move from maintaining to emerging.
  • However, the cohort of learners is small and is not statistically significant.
