Autumn Term Progress – Impact Report 2022/23

Executive Summary

This summary assumes the reader has a good understanding of Woodlane’s assessment practices. For more information on this, please visit our Assessment page of the school website. Within the graphs in our reports, impact is demonstrated through a blue star (outstanding progress) and a red flag (working below).


This data set reports pupil progress from the Autumn Term 2022/23, where school has been operating normally, (e.g. without closure). This has been significantly different to the previous 2 years, therefore any reference or comparisons made with 2020/21 and 2021/22 must be considered with caution due to the impact of Covid-19.


Autumn Term 2021/22 Headline Results:

  • 98.8% of pupils met and exceeded expectations across all subjects. This is a significant rise of 1.7% from the Autumn term 2021/22 and comfortably over the Outstanding threshold.
  • 28.3% of expectations were exceeded.
  • 7 out of the 8 foundation subjects have achieved the School’s threshold for ‘Outstanding.’

*The figures presented under Meeting+ include those pupils who have both met and exceeded expectations.

At the end of the Autumn Term, 98.80% of expectations are being met or exceeded. This is a significant rise of 1.7% from the Autumn term 2021/22 and comfortably over the Outstanding threshold. This is a key indication that progress is back to pre-pandemic levels. Over time we see fluctuation in the data, (below) and clearly the school’s upward trajectory was impacted by Covid-19, but work undertaken has recovered this well.


Impact in the Core Subjects:

The combined average for the core subjects is 98.22%, and 24.69%. English and Maths demonstrate an excellent proportion of pupils exceeding expectations for this point in the academic year and are on-track to exceed the school’s 50% threshold by the end of the Summer Term.


Impact in the Foundation Subjects:

The headline data is very positive in the foundation subjects with the overall ‘mean’ figure at 99.25%. This is 0.6% higher than the Summer Term and 3% higher than the Autumn Term 2021/22. Expectations exceeded for the foundation subjects as a whole is at 31.01%, 6.5% higher than the core subjects, demonstrating continued excellent progress across the wider curriculum.


Impact across Common Groups:

Woodlane analyses the progress of all pupils within common groups (e.g. Gender, SEN, Ethnicity, and PP). 

  • There is almost no gap between Girls and Boys, (0.2%).
  • The gap has been closed in terms of expectations met with KS3 pupils progressing better than their peers in KS4 by 1%.
  • In the MMH, there is a difference in exceeding and meeting expectations compared to their peers but this gap has closed since the Summer Term. The gap has reduced down to approximately 2.5%.


Areas for Improvement:

  • Improve the progress of pupils in Science in-line with their peers.
  • Improve the progress of WOTH (meeting) and WBRI (exceeding) in the core subjects.
  • Monitor the progress of Year 8 in English and bring KS3 pupils more in-line with their KS4 peers.
  • Improve the progress of Computing and Humanities in-line with the other foundation subjects.
