Assessment at Gibside School

The majority of pupils at Gibside School are working below national expectations.

We assess our pupils using PIVATS (Performance Indicators for Value Added Target Setting) We use a data analysis system CASPA (Comparison and Analysis of Special Pupil Attainment) to determine whether our pupils are making the best progress possible in the areas of English, Maths and PSHE. Data from CASPA tells us whether our pupils are making as much progress as they should be, by comparing assessed levels with the levels of other similar pupils nationally.


Target setting at Gibside School

Targets are set each year for all pupils using ‘moderated’ teacher judgments and CASPA set targets. Where there has been an anomaly between teacher and CASPA set targets the assessment leader will take an average of the two, unless there are valid reasons not to do so (following further discussions with class teacher). The final target is ‘validated’ in the CASPA system. This makes the target setting process at Gibside robust.

Throughout the year teachers track the progress of the pupils in their class ensuring they are able to meet or exceed their targets. Focused interventions will be put into place where a pupil is not showing expected progress.

Pupils who are working within national curriculum levels may be entered for SAT’s tests along with their mainstream peers.
