Pupil Attainment and Progression

It is fundamental to all that we do at the John Fielding School that our students make measurable year on year progress in key functional skills.  Students following a semi-formal curriculum are assessed using the PIVATS scales, a nationally recognised assessment system supported by Lancashire County Council.  Students following an informal curriculum have their progress assessed using MAPP, an approach which is entirely personalised to a student’s individual learning targets but with a rigorous monitoring protocol.

We set all of our students a minimum expectation of achieving the national average level of progress, based on age and prior attainment.  We derive these progress targets from the CASPA data set.  At the beginning of each academic year we also set a ‘stretch’ target for each student for each subject based on our judgement of an ambitious but achievable objective beyond average progress.

Our post-16 students follow the OCR Life and Living curriculum leading to external accreditation of their achievements.  Over the past few years all of our leavers have moved on to successful further education placements as a result of well-planned transition programmes
