What do the fine grades mean at Key Stage 4 and 5?

At Key Stage 4 and 5 an end of course prediction is given by the class teacher. This is based upon the student continuing to work as they are at the moment. These grades are fine grades and indicate how strong a grade the student is likely to achieve.

For Example:

Legacy A*-G grades

C3: the teacher believes the student could achieve a low grade C.

C2: the teacher believes the student will achieve a middle grade C.

C1: the teacher believes the student will achieve a high grade C.

Similarly for the new 9-1 GCSE grades

5-: the teacher believes the student could achieve a low grade 5.

5 : the teacher believes the student will achieve a middle grade 5.

5+: the teacher believes the student will achieve a high grade 5.

 

Attitude to Learning

Students also receive an attitude to learning grade from A to E (A being the highest, E the lowest) input by class teachers at each data collection.

Key:

E – Serious concern significantly impacting on progress.

D –There is a concern, if this continues it will impact on progress.

C- Attitude is no concern but more effort could be made.

B – Good effort, therefore good progress is being made this year.

A – Outstanding effort, better than expected progress is being made this year.
