Aspirational targets and progress for CiC 2016
Current Yr 11
2018 onwards (Yr 10)
Key Stage 2 to 4
Although this may well change, currently rough scaled scores in the new SATs from Key Stage 2 will equal the
following grades in the new reformed GCSEs and new grades. As foster care can often allow greater progress,
opportunities should also be available where appropriate for those achieving less than expected standards.
Eg Joe gets 69/80 in his maths SAT in year 6. When the scaled scores are sent out by the government, it seems
that 69/80 is equivalent to 105 on the scaled scores. So he has beaten the expected standard of 100 and is
clearly able in maths. His target at secondary should be at least a 6 (high B) and extra opportunities to reach his
potential in maths should be offered with his £1900 LAC Pupil Premium funding as well as the school’s core
KS1 to 2
100 is the scaled score for expected progress in KS1 in reading and maths. Those getting below 92 would need targeted
support in key stage 2 to support these gaps. A child in care may have large areas of missed learning so 1 to 1 support to
fill in these individual gaps would be needed. Pupils going into care can often make more than expected progress so if a
child is in care before the end of year 1 and still reaches expected standards of 100, he or she is likely to be capable of
achieving more than 102 in the year 6 SATs.
With writing, WDS (working at greater depth) is used to describe those pupils with higher ability being demonstrated.
A child in care getting a GLD (good level of development) should achieve expected standards of 100 in the scaled results at
the end of Year 1 at least and with the extra £1900 from LAC Pupil Premium, exceed the expected standard at the end of
