    Ask to see raise online so that you can understand what is being demanded of you. It won't just be progress from KS2 - KS4 although it is probably worked out from literacy levels. Raise online is going into great detail with languages as well as humanities due to the e-bacc measurement. You will see which groups are doing better/worse and it will allow you to understand where you need to focus your energies as well as. Broadly speaking all pupils are expected to make 3 levels progress from KS2 so all level 4 children are expected to get a C and level 5 are expected to get a B. If they get an A then that is greater than expected progress in general.
  2. Thanks for your advice. I will ask to see the document.
  3. I am not MFL, but I think subject teachers and heads of departments can benefit from using RAISEonline and FFT data -
    For your subject, have a look at the RAISE pages on <u>attainmen</u>t, summary of full GCSE results for all pupils, also the table of Relative Performance indicators for full GCSEs all pupils, and the EBacc subject areas thresholds by pupil groups, plus <u>Progress</u> Measures Value Added, KS2 - KS4 VA scores for best 8 and EBacc subject areas, trend. You can see how MFL is doing in relation to other subjects in your school - progress and actual results - you can also compare with national context - results and profile/percentage of Yr 11s doing languages. Look at average points scores in your subject compared with others. Bear in mind prior attainment ('Low, middle or high') of the students who elect to take MFL.
    KS2 levels in Eng, Maths and Science are used - this is 'prior attainment' - to calculate expected rates of progress in <u>all</u> subjects to KS4, even those like languages that pupils may not have studied at primary school. As well as prior attainment, the FFT calculations for individuals take into account gender and month of birth, and (RAISE too) are contextualised with info on the school (how many FSM, EAL, geodemographic factors like higher education rates in your area, etc, etc). The expectations are a little crude - being based on averages - so they are not gospel true for every child. But they do give a rough idea of roughly how you might expect your students to perform in most academic subjects. Student with three secure level 5s at Ks2 would be expected to get Bs or above in 8 subjects at GCSE. If they are (almost) managing that, but getting Cs and Ds in languages, then their progress in MFL probably needs to improve, at least relative to other departments in school. You can also look at progress rates in MFL in KS3 (where much of the groundwork should have been done) to see if the mountain to climb in KS4 is reasonable.
    Many LAs used to run training sessions on using RAISEonline. We asked for training in our school.
  4. is this what you needed, lalspc?

    Latest progress data says that all subjects must make 3 levels of progress from KS2 to KS4. The starting point for measuring student progress is the individual level achieved in English.
    For example, a pupil attaining level 5 English at KS2 is expected to get B or higher in all GCSE subjects in KS4. See conversion chart on the following website:
    The hard bit to swallow is that a student arriving at your school with no prior data is regarded as having achieved a level 5, so must attain a B or higher to be judged as having made the expected level of progress.
