Raising Achievement in Key Stage 4

On Thursday 8th February Years 10 and 11 took part in an important raising achievement initiative.

The meaning of Progress 8 was explained to the Year 10 students and how they can ensure they are making positive progress through adopting a positive attitude to learning and ensuring 100% attendance to school. With the Year 10’s now around a third of they way through their GCSE courses it was a significant ‘moment in time’ for them to stop and think about their learning journey and how they can improve.
Mr Varsani, Head of Maths and Advance Skills Leader, then discussed the impact of the PiXL Maths App with the Year 10 students and celebrated those who had already made good use of the app. The top 4 students within the year group received a prize and the students could then see who were in the top 10 for the whole year group. The year 10’s then spent some time exploring the app and trying to improve their position on the leaderboard.
The Year 11 students then had an assembly where the ‘Passport to the Prom’  was launched to encourage the students to attend planned intervention sessions in order to raise attainment. Mr Varsani then introduced the Year 11’s to the PiXL Maths App then enjoyed dowloading the app in the assembly and exploring the key features.
The next moment in time for Year 11 is the Raising Achievement Evening which is taking place on 13th March.
