Progress & Results

Assessment at Bridgelea

Nearly all pupils on arrival to Bridgelea are working below age-expected levels in Maths and English. However, most pupils make accelerated progress from their Bridgelea baseline. Pupils work towards personal targets that use National Curriculum year group expectation descriptors according to the child’s level, these descriptors are then used to set ongoing lesson-by-lesson targets.  Within this, teachers aim to include an age-related option where this is suitable for the class group.

Each child at Bridgelea follows expectations according to where they are with their learning, not according to their age. However, each Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 child does follow year group National Curriculum expectations to inform where they are at, progress, and set challenging targets. We have developed a tracking system linked to the key writing objectives for writing from Reception through to Y6, which we use for Writing. The Oxford Criterion Reading Scale is used for tracking Reading (OCRS). We use Numicon tracking grids to track progress in maths. Samples for Y3 are attached below.

Descriptors are used according to the child’s current learning age, not their chronological age. For example, on entry to Bridgelea, a Y5 child may be functioning within Y3 expectations, therefore, Y3 expectations will provide the starting point and the child will make accelerated progress toward their chronological age.   Any exceptions are due to additional cognitive difficulties, complex SEND, or extreme past/present trauma in their lives and additional support and monitoring is used to capture progress. Progress is aggregated to reflect the number of half-terms attended within the academic year.
