Target Tracker

All schools in TKAT use Target Tracker to record assessments of the children.

Expectations
The expectations for staff are embedded in their Performance Management. Expected progress is 6 steps per year; good progress is 6.3 steps, outstanding progress is 7 steps.

Assessment
Target Tracker (TT) is organised into a ‘band’ for each year group (Year 1 = Band 1, Year 2 = Band 2, etc) and within each band there are three ‘steps’ which are used to show progress over the year – beginning (B), within expectation (W) , secure at expectation (S). These are then broken down further into 6 overall steps: B, B+, W, W+, S, S+.

Every term we complete and share the data in this format. We expect the data to improve at a faster rate this year due to cautious conversions in September. These are our 1 stop sheets and they are shared with governors, senior leaders and teaching staff. We write actions, analyse groups and discuss actions taken from last half term. We call each of our half terms a term for the purpose of these sheets so we have 6 ‘terms’ each year.

Curriculum
Our curriculum is bespoke to us and is driven by the fact that we want children to leave the Mill secure in their own identity; familiar with their own community and sense of family; skilled in making connections with friends and the wider world.
Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. We continuously reflect on the best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
Newsletters
Our regular newsletters are one of many ways that we celebrate their amazing successes, hard work and adventures. We always love to share how 'Forever Proud' we are of the children in The Mill community.
