Pupils Progress meetings

Discussion in 'Primary' started by awhita, Jan 2, 2012.

  1. Does anyone else have their pupils progress meetings assessed to ofsted grades? Our school introduced them earlier this year and I wondered if this was now the norm and where the criteria had come from.
  2. We don't, and I'm hoping it stays that way; they're soul destroying as it is!

    We have progress meetings, not sure about Ofsted gradings though. How does that work? Might actually be an improvement on ours.
  4. We are going to be given a grade (o,g,s or I) based on the progress in our class and the justification and evidence that we provide to show what we have done and are going to do in the future. I don't know where the grade criteria has come from as I can't find anything on Ofsted website about it.

    The new ofsted framework does have a lot about progress in the lesson observation criteria. It sort of makes sense to use progress data to decide if children are making inadequate/ satisfactory/ good/ outstanding progress from data than from a 20 mins snapshot of a lesson...

    But sheeesh!

    OFSTED may well determine (although not refer to in the report) whether progress is o/g/s/i in each year group/cohort.
    In our last inspection, in the pre-phone call, we were asked to provide a single figure for each year group (annual APS gain) along with our interpretation of the progress made. In the one before, the tables of figures we provided the inspector were left behind with o/g/s/i scrawled next to them.
    Given that management are now expected to drill down to this level ... and that somewhere in most headteacher's offices there is a bit of paper with one of those words next to the progress for each group ... would you rather be told, or not?
