Assessment - Outcomes
All Year 11 pupil's individual starting points were compared to their outcome (qualification obtained) in all qualification subjects in 2016/17 and Woodlane judges that outcomes are outstanding. This is because pupils progress well from their different starting points and achieve or exceed standards expected within the school’s own curriculum and in comparison with other outstanding SEN schools.
Pupils at Woodlane make substantial and sustained progress, developing excellent knowledge, understanding and skills, considering their different starting points. Over time (2015, 2016 and 2017) qualification outcomes and the percentage meeting and exceeding expectations continues to rise. The graph below compares all subject qualifications with expectations over the last three years.
For further analysis of outcomes, including analysis of subjects individually and the progress of key groups, please download the Outcomes 2016/17 Executive Summary below.
Woodlane also explores outcomes achieved through the Raise Online yearly report. Woodlane has used the Raise Online report and broken it down in to a more suitable and useful snapshot of the performance of pupils at the school.
The Progress 8 data in the table above for 2015/16 shows that their progress is not in the bottom 10% when compared with the national progress figure for all schools. Given that these pupils’ academic starting points are extremely low, their progress is very positive when compared to that of their ‘peers’ nationally.
The Attainment 8 table suggest that Woodlane pupils are described as being in the bottom 10% nationally when directly compared with all mainstream secondary schools in the country. However, when comparing attainment at Woodlane with that of other outstanding SEN provisions, (see Assessment - Comparison) Woodlane pupils are achieving very highly which is a significant cause for celebration.
