Introduction

Please note: Reporting dates are shown in terms of financial years, in keeping with Bristol City Council reporting
conventions. As regards annual examination results, this results in a one-year reporting lag because National Curriculum
assessments are not finalised until the following year. Data reported more frequently (eg. attendance, exclusions) is now
collected by school terms starting in 07/08; The most recent term available will be reported each financial quarter.


                                                                                                            Page 1

  There was a fall in primary English and Maths results this summer (based upon provisional results). 72% of children gained at
  least Level 4 in English (the standard expected for their age) and 69.0% in Maths. The results are lower than last year - English
  73.1% and Maths 70.2% but are above 2005 results. They are considerably behind the national average figures and short of the
  Key Stage 2 targets for this year which were 78% in English and 79% in Maths. Underachievement was not confined to low
  attaining schools.

  Risks to Delivery:
  • Delivery of Transition Plans for primary schools undergoing transition
  • Pupils making poor progress in reading and numeracy in KS1.
  • Many schools not practising what the best do consistently well.
  • Insufficiently rigorous pupil tracking.

  Actions to Improve Performance:
  Universal
  • Training delivered to all primary phase schools by July 2008 to support the implementation of national strategies frameworks,
  including the effective use of phonics
  • SIP (primary) Steering Group and School Improvement Partners (SIPs) established for all primary schools
  • All primary phase schools to have reviewed and revised curriculum, supported by QCA curriculum
  networks, by July 2008
  • All primary schools deliver transfer units in Extended School Partnerships in years 5/6 and Y6/7
  by July 2008. Best practice seminars delivered by lead schools by December 2007

  Targeted:
  • Intensive national strategy support programmes delivered in 43 targeted schools from September 2007
  • Reading Recovery Programme extended to 41 schools by December 2007
  • Science subject leader support training delivered in partnership with Science Learning Centre South West by
  March 2008

   5+ A*-C was 46.5%, 2.7% up on last year but 1.5% below target. 5+ A*- C including English and Maths was 31.4% this summer,
   still 2% below target. Since 2005, 5 A*-C has moved up 10% and 5+A*-C including English and Maths has moved up 3.2%. (All
   2007 results are provisional.)

   Risk to Delivery:
   • Insufficiently broad curriculum offer post 14 in some schools
   • Insufficiently rigorous pupil tracking
   • Low standards in English and Maths in some schools
   • Intensified support for teaching and leadership in English and maths

   Actions to Improve Performance:
   Universal:
   • 5+A*-C (including English and Maths) Strategy delivered to all schools through subject training, target cohort tracking and
   monitoring by June 2008
   • All schools trained in the use of Raise On-Line by March 2008
   • All schools have reviewed and revised KS3 curriculum to deliver the KS3 Learning to Learn curriculum, supported by QCA
   network, by June 2008
   • All schools have mapped progression in ICT through assessment grids by February 2008

   Targeted:
   • Targeted support delivered in identified schools and under-performing subject departments by July 2008
   through Accelerated Progress Programmes

   NB. Although there is a direct correlation between attendance and absence data , absence data is now reported within this report card on an
   annual basis while attendance is measured termly.

   Performance Highlights:
   • Term 5 annual outturn for attendance up to 93.82% in Primary and 90.32% in Secondary
   • 2 of 9 schools targeted reduced persistent absence to below 10%
   • City wide, persistent absence down to 9.9% from 10.7% last year
   • Every Day Counts celebration event well attended
   • Bristol's work on improving attendance levels has been rated by the Audit Survey of Heads as being in the top quartile nationally
   • Out of remedial category through year on year improvement
   • Reconfigured Education Welfare Service to establish an audit and quality assurance function which will give consistency across all schools
   and Academies on reporting absence. By March 2008 it will be fully operational
   • Appointment of Advisor - Attendance & Participation
   • Attendance Champions having a significant impact on BME attendance

   Risks to Performance:
   • Attendance and Configuration of DCSF thresholds for persistent absence changed and lowered from 10% to 9%
   meaning that more schools can be categorised as having high persistent absence levels
   • Attendance of children in care is too low
   • 9 schools still need support to reduce persistent absence

   Actions to Improve Performance:
   • All schools receive accurate and timely attendance data to effectively target support and intervention by October 2007
   • Targeted intervention programmes for cohorts of pupils and schools with low attendance delivered by September 2008
   • Targeted programme to ensure successful Y6-Y7 transfer for pupils with below 90% attendance delivered
   by October each year
   • Impact of Attendance Champions evaluated by January 2008 in relation to improving BME attendance
   • Identified 15-16 year olds with poor levels of attendance engaged in the Choices programme by May annually
   • Children and young people at risk of becoming missing from the system through moving schools, absenteeism, and house moves
   are tracked and followed up (ongoing)

  Provisional data shows an improvement in performance between the academic years 05/06 and 06/07. At KS1 the gap between BME and non-
  BME pupils narrowed in 06/07. This is an LAA stretch target.

  Actions to Improve Performance:
  • Supplementary schools commissioned to deliver targeted programme for identified groups by March 2008
  • Black Achievement Project implemented by three targeted schools from September 2007
  • Ethnic Minority Higher Education Awareness project operating in 5 primary schools from October 2007
  • Windsor Fellowship Programme operating in identified schools from September 2007
  • Local authority services to support and challenge schools to raise BME attainment re-focused to meet need by April 2008
  • Strengthened support and challenge to schools in providing for EAL pupils by March 2008 through: SIP monitoring of effective use of EMAG
  funds; 3 training sessions and follow-up workshops for schools on effective school based provision for Emphasis on Additional Learning (EAL)
  pupils; EAL best practice website further developed
  • Role of Assessment and Induction Centre refocussed by March 2008 to continue and strengthen support
  for newly arrived pupils; revised protocols for accessing provision established by November 2007
  • Admissions Policy reviewed in conjunction with Community Cohesion Institute by March 2008
