Reports Glossary

SHS KS3 levels

Whole level (e.g. 6) - Overall the pupil has achieved the skills, knowledge and understanding to be awarded the level, although their work is still developing and some aspects may be at the level below.

Level + a (e.g. 6a) - The pupil has consistently shown the skills, knowledge and understanding to be awarded the level and is starting to produce work at the level above.

SHS Expected Minimum Level

This is the level we expect your daughter to have achieved by the end of Year 9 based on estimates from average KS2 levels and CATS scores.

SHS Aspirational Target

This is a motivational target for your daughter to work towards. If your daughter is making particularly good progress this target may be increased to provide more challenge.

SHS Current Level

The SHS current levels are colour coded to show your daughter’s progress in relation to the SHS Expected Minimum Level at this stage in Key Stage 3 for each individual subject.

FFT Estimates

The FFT GCSE Estimates shown are statistical estimates provided by the Fischer Family Trust (FFT) calculated from a pupil’s prior attainment, usually their average KS2 score. The FFT Estimate is a nationally recognised benchmark which allows schools to more accurately monitor pupil progress.
