New Post 16 Accountability measures
(from summer 2016 so involves our current year 12s)
5 Headline Measures
• Progress
• Attainment
• Progress in English & Maths (L2)
• Retention
• Destinations
Education reform and KS4
Accountability measures from summer 2016
•pupils’ progress across 8 subjects. So, a parent will
see whether pupils at a school typically achieve 1
grade more than expected, or 1 grade less
•the average grade a pupil achieves in these same
‘best 8’ subjects. This will show, for example, that
pupils in a particular school average a high B grade
or a low D grade in their GCSEs
•the percentage of pupils achieving a C grade in
English and maths
•the proportion of pupils gaining the EBacc, which
will continue in its current form
• Pupils’ progress and attainment will be assessed in 8 subjects:
• English (the best of English Lang. and English Lit.) and maths will be
double weighted to reflect the importance of these subjects.
• 3 further EBacc subjects.
• 3 other ‘high-value’ qualifications. This final group can include further
traditional academic subjects, subjects such as art, music and drama,
and vocational subjects, such as business., as well as the second best
score of English Literature and English Language.
Progress 8 Floor Standard (from DfE)
• We will define the new floor standard as progress
half a grade lower than reasonable expectations. So,
if pupils at a school are expected to average a B in
their 8 subjects, the school will be below the floor if
they average less than 4 Bs and 4 Cs.
• At present, there are 195 schools below the floor
standard. Using existing figures, we estimate that
around twice as many schools would be below this
new floor standard. However, as schools will adjust
their curriculum to the new framework the actual
number is likely to be significantly lower than this.
• The DfE is still determining the methodology for
some of the calculations
Blast from the Past!
The EBacc (English Baccalaureate)
• English
• Mathematics
• Sciences (physics, biology, chemistry and
computer science –introduced at GHS this
September)
• Geography
• History
• Languages (classical and modern).
Qualification Grade changes
A* - G
(A* - C – ‘good pass)
9 – 1 (4 equivalent of a C but 5
may well become the preferred
threshold)
Curriculum challenges – a few
• Maintaining a broad and balanced curriculum when
more and more emphasis is being placed on certain
subjects e.g. EBacc
• Computer Science students will need to have high
aptitude in Maths and / or Science
• Post 16 subjects – Academic; Applied ; Technical
qualifications
The Learning Journey
The future
• What characteristics, attributes, skills,
knowledge and understanding will our
students need for the future?
• How do we work together to best ‘equip’ our
students for the future?
