As mentioned dd got 113
The score was undoubtedly a hurdle, but the rest is quite concerning.
End of yr 5
4a, 4b, 4b
Pupils generally progress by 2 sub-levels in an academic year, and predictions 5b, 5c and 5c would be entirely reasonable based on those results.
And working at levels repeated end of yr 5 levels
Hardly a surprise, given that around 10 school days will have elapsed in the interim!
Predicted end of K S 2 were
5b, 5c, 5c
Although actual end of Dec 2013 results were
5b, 4a, 5c
Which suggest that 5a, 5c and 5b could well be achievable by May.
And her mock sat in maths (only one I have results for so far) last week was 5b
Recent progress, something that a IAP would take into account.
The letter that came this morning has a series of options to tick and the one marked for dd is option 2 I.e. "Their view was the KS2 progress clearly shows that one level 5 can be achieved in KS2 Sats"
It seems they are working out their own progress levels and replacing those of the head.
On what basis, given that all the information provided appears to differ with that view? Oh, but I'm assuming that there is no further information about that in the Clerk's record?
DD's head is one of the panel members for selection review so this seems a bit odd to me.
I will aim to speak to head next week for her comments.
She won't have been involved in the Review herself, but it would be helpful to know whether she feels comfortable with her professional judgement being overridden.
