New systems have been introduced, do you know about them? The government maybe looking to introduce another new “accountability measure” into the education system, the ideas being discussed are about testing at KS1, tests for four to five year-olds. From our Trust’s community engagement programmes we know that most people have not yet caught up with the changes of 2016, a major portion of these changes are the introduction of Attainment 8, Progress 8 and new GCSE grading levels which are scored from 1 to 9. The Futurist (Haringey) magazine is part of your local home-school knowledge exchange (HSKE) which is building up connections between “schools” (a variety of learning spaces) to find ways to help progressive schools engage in knowledge exchanges with families and other community integrated learning spaces. So before preparing this special report article we spoke to local teachers, school governors (including Chairs of Governors), parents and young learners, none were able to confidently explain the current monitoring system for schools, most basically had no idea about how Attainment 8 and Progress 8 work. In summary Progress 8’s stated design intention is to measure how well pupils progress between the end of primary and the end of secondary school. The score for each pupil is based on whether their actual GCSE scores are higher or lower than those achieved by pupils who had similar attainment (Attainment 8) at the end of primary school. So rather than assess a school’s performance simply by the proportion passing a particular threshold, which is strongly correlated with intake, Progress 8’s design intention is to make the school system as a whole move more towards measuring the underlying dynamics of a school. This notionally is the basic idea. The flaws in Attainment 8 – Part 1: page: 3 of 39 Should schools be most accountable to the community or the government?
