The Progress Toolkit: Helping schools to track student progress
Monitoring Student Progress and Rewarding Success
The Progress Toolkit helps teachers to best support students in their learning journey, whilst providing appropriate information about progress and attainment to key stakeholders.
The Progress Toolkit is a software tool underpinned by a tried and trusted methodology for monitoring student progress and achievement, identifying interventions and rewarding success. It is designed to enable every student in your school to make the maximum possible progress, whatever their starting point, in order that they can achieve the best outcomes in their future lives.
Setting up the structure: Students are given up to three targets based on their KS2 average fine levels and the expected outcomes for students with similar fine level scores, as published by the DFE:
Minimum - 3 levels of progress
Expected - 4 levels of progress
Aspirational - 5+ levels of progress.
Subject specialists work out what the learning journey looks like in their particular subject and the toolkit provides a series of reports and analyses for groups and individuals throughout the course of that journey.
