"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."
Ofsted January 2013
We analyse assessment data frequently to ensure that children make good progress that matches their potential. Various targets for progress can help this. As well as targets for a child's progress, teachers set targets around what a child needs to learn next:
'Next Steps' - daily marking where teachers note 'stars' (when pupils did well) and 'wish' (how the next piece of work can be even better)
'Personal Targets' - sometimes, children will be given an individual target that a teacher (and often the child) recognises as a particular area to improve (eg to show capitals clearly; to know number bonds to ten); these targets are written on a sticker on exercise books.
