Hi, I'm setting my appraisal target for this year and was doing some googling to help me decide what would be a sensible number to put on my Y11 class. Before we get started, I completely agree that measuring levels of progress based on their attainment in KS2 English and Maths is complete rubbish. But that's the system I've got to work within, and at least I'm my school allows me to set my own target rather than imposing an unachievable one on me. So... We have "languages for all" and my (top-set out of 2) class are a fairly mixed ability bunch, currently working at grades A to F. Based on how they're currently doing, I think 52% of them are going to make the alleged 3 Levels Progress and 25% of them are on track make 4 Levels Progress. As 3 Levels Progress is the national "expected" level, only getting 52% of them to that point sounds pretty appalling. So I'm feeling under pressure (from myself, not from above) to bump it up a bit to a more ambitious sounding number. But I did some googling and found this: www.bolsover.derbyshire.sch.uk/wp-content/uploads/Target-Setting.pdf The letter in the link states that nationally, only 26% of pupils make 3 Levels of Progress in French. If this is true, it's great news from my point of view, as it turns my 52% into an ambitious, aspirational goal of double the national average! The trouble is, I can't find what this headteacher's source is in order to back it up if queried. I've done some more googling but haven't found an official page stating this. Does anyone (I'm guessing HoDs are more likely to know as you do more number crunching) have a source?
