Tracking pupil progress in English and maths

Senior leader Katharine Hall discusses her work to develop an effective system for tracking pupil progress and monitoring her school's intervention strategies.

In September 2011, as part of my first year residential training on the Future Leaders programme, I took the post of assistant headteacher at St John Fisher Catholic High School in West Yorkshire.

My main focus was to identify track and monitor students’ attainment in English and maths at both key stage 3 and key stage 4 ( particularly years 8 and 11). The goal was to increase the number of students achieving in both subjects.

My work at St John Fisher had a great impact on the students and the school. In 2011, the school saw its highest GCSE pass rate to date, at 62 per cent five A* to C including English and maths. This stood at 50 per cent in 2010.
