Our Key Stage and Achievement Team reflects our approach to seeing progress in learning take place over time, not just within a year, and aims to ensure that all of our pupils recieve the support and challenge that they need to make sustained progress throughout their school life.

Children in Years 7, 8 and 9 are part of Key Stage 3, and those in Years 10 and 11 are part of Key Stage 4.  Our new Key Stage Team will develop target setting with pupils and the challenge that we give pupils to make the best progress possible.

The Key Stage Team will work alongside our SENDCO and Head of PSHCE and Tutorial to ensure that any barriers to pupil learning are reduced and removed.  This may involve challenging barriers created by individual needs, approach to study, or in a small minority of cases, through behaviours that make learning less effective.
