Sir William Stanier School utilises a comprehensive approach to reporting home to parents and carers by incorporating both Minimum Expected Grades (MEGs) based on FFT50 data and Aspirational grades based on FFT20 data, alongside a student's current working grade.
By utilising FFT50 data, the school can determine the minimum grades that a student is expected to achieve based on their prior attainment. These MEGs serve as a benchmark to ensure that students are making progress in line with their potential. Additionally, FFT20 data provides aspirational grades that challenge students to aim higher and exceed expectations. By considering a student's current working grade, which reflects their ongoing progress and performance, the school can provide a holistic picture of a student's academic journey to parents and carers.
Additionally, Sir William Stanier School recognises the crucial role attendance plays in academic success and ensures that it is factored into the reporting process. By acknowledging the importance of regular attendance, the school emphasises the significance of consistent engagement in the learning process, as it greatly contributes to students' overall achievement and progress.
This comprehensive reporting system allows for a well-rounded understanding of a student's achievements, potential, and areas for improvement, fostering a collaborative and supportive environment between the school and home.
