Data Assessment Review 2022-2023

As we currently disapply our students from taking the National Curriculum Assessments and our Key Stage 4 students follow ASDAN Personal Progress, you will not find data on interim assessments or GCSEs on the DfE website.  However there is other information about the school held on the DfE site and you may also view this information clicking hereGiven the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.


Both Manor Mead and Walton Leigh schools use ILP target data as our main form of assessment. Each student is set targets in four areas:

  • Communication, Language and Literacy
  • Personal, Social and Emotional
  • Cognition
  • Physical and Sensory

These targets are set twice a year by teachers, reviewed by school leadership, then agreed by parents during parent consultations. The targets are then evaluated twice a year and allocated a completion score between 0 and 3 stars

  • 0 stars meaning no progress or very little progress
  • 1 star meaning some progress, but not consistently half way to the target
  • 2 stars meaning good progress, either more than half, but not the complete target has been achieved, or the target has been achieved, but not consistently
  • 3 stars meaning the target has been consistently achieved

In addition, English, Maths and PSHE progress is recorded using P scales and the Beyond P8 levels used by SPAN schools

This progress is then reviewed by school leadership, who create a data report, which includes any trends and highlights any suggested interventions.

Some pupils are able to access national Year 2 and Year 6 assessments, however most students are dis-applied as they are working below the level of the tests
