Target setting plays a crucial role in promoting student progress and achievement at Sir William Stanier School and FFT20 and FFT50 (Fisher Family Trust) are widely used statistical models that effectively support this process.
These models provide valuable insights into students' expected performance based on their prior attainment, by analysing historical data and taking into account various factors such as socioeconomic background and other contextual information. The generated targets are both challenging and realistic, enabling educators to tailor their teaching and learning strategies to meet the specific needs of each student, ensuring that they are appropriately challenged and supported.
Using FFT20 and FFT50 to set targets help foster a culture of high expectations and continuous improvement at Sir William Stanier. These models empower us to set ambitious yet achievable goals, and support them in tracking student progress and evaluating the effectiveness of their teaching approaches.
