Target Tracker

Across TKAT we use Target Tracker.

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.

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.


Look below for the bands that correspond to the year group that your child is in. These are the end of year expectations for your child and the year group they are in.
