Summary Report 2013 Released
Despite a slight delay the RAISEonline 2013 Summary Report for primary phase schools is now available.
The Report is much reduced from previous years down from 94 pages to 57, mainly due to removal of a number of charts and particularly a culling of the scatter plot charts.
The main changes:
- The report clearly highlights the pages that the DfE/Ofsted believe will be of most use to Governors by placing a large G in the top corner. As you will be aware there is significant emphasis on Head Teachers to provide their Governors with the information they need to do their job, and this is a case in point. Best practice for Governing Bodies to review the RAISEonline data, and if necessary to seek external support in understanding and interpreting it.
- The Y2 Phonics Screening schedule by Pupil Characteristic has been added to the report covering both retakes and first-time entries.
- As schools should be aware there is no overall English subject reporting in the KS2 data this year on all schedules (attainment and progress) reading and writing are reported separately. Additionally the new Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling test results are also analysed but for attainment only.
- Also L4B+ thresholds are reported as the DfE moves towards its goal of identifying those pupils who are “Secondary Ready”, i.e. those children who have gained L4B+ in both reading and maths tests as well as L4+ in the teachers assessment of writing are said to have gained a “good” L4 or above.
- The transition matrices this year include versions showing the Pupil Premium children alone and comparing their progress percentages to the rest of their cohort and the national Non-FSM/CLA
- There is a substantial section at the back of the report dedicated to Pupil Premium and its impact in Closing the attainment Gap. These schedules now include trend schedules based on APS by subject and the only remaining scatter plot chart showing FSM/CLA children by gender. Ofsted in its latest Subsidiary Guidance document (Sept 2013 – page 28) sets out how inspectors should evaluate the use of Pupil Premium. Its is suggested that it needs to be evaluated whatever the number of pupils and that inspectors need to conclude whether or not it is used well to support PP pupils.
