Tracking your Pupil Premium students - or any specific cohort
I'd be interested in hearing what you have in place to track your Pupil Premium kids (or, as I said above, any specific cohort who need detailed tracking).
We have mentors here in school and they need to able to access, easily (bearing in mind that they are not all very IT-savvy), tracking data on attendance, behaviour and current/predicted grades. Home page widgets give a snapshot of today's figures but we need both a series of up-to-date snapshots, and the ability to track progress in each of these areas.
I can run a set of reports each term giving their individual and group figures for each of those aspects for the term (one behaviour report, one lesson monitor report, one grades marksheet with totals), pulling all the figures together into one spreadsheet for each term's snapshot, and then collecting the figures for each term in one place so that we can see the trends from one term to the next.
It all seems a bit long-winded and clunky though. I am sure other schools across the country are tracking pupils with similar aims - just wondered how you do it?
[have x-posted into the DM group as it's not SIMS specific, though SIMS does give us that particular problem of attendance and assessment modules that don't really talk too well...........]
