Assessment Data 

Due to the complex needs of our students, Harford Manor School does not produce much of the formal data that attributes to many of the standardised performance results. However, you can access our 'Government School Performance Data' using the link below.

Performance data specific to our school and further information regarding our assessment can be found below.

Pupil Progress and Target Setting

At the heart of effective teaching and learning is good quality, consistent and continuous assessment and recording.  We cannot plan for progress if we do not have an understanding of where the pupil is and how he or she has arrived there. We are committed to giving all our pupils every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. Target setting is the means by which we identify specific and measurable goals that help to improve the standards achieved by all our pupils. These targets are generated from the pupil’s Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) outcomes, these are agreed at the annual review by all those supporting the pupil and the pupil themselves if appropriate, these are then addressed in our termly Personalised Learning Goals (PLGs).

The targets aim to break down the pupil’s individual barriers to learning, whilst looking forward to help equip them to build solid foundations for their futures, incorporating effective communication, promoting independence and building confidence. 

Measuring Holistic Progress

At Harford Manor we are passionate about what holistic progress looks like for each and every one of our pupils and our range of assessment routes support us to recognise wider achievement and identify where additional support is needed. The particular pathway that each pupil takes will depend on their need, this will then determine their curricular route, this includes;

  • Ongoing teacher assessment.
  • Moderated curricular assessment using one or a combination of three frameworks; Autism Education Trust (AET), Harford Steps and OCR accreditation, within Earwig, (an App and software package that enables staff to capture teaching evidence, pupils work, photographs, videos, make assessments, celebrate achievement and create timelines).
  • Annual Review and termly Personalised Learning Goal (PLG) progress.

We need to include in our model of progress those pupils for whom maintaining skills is good “progress” and we need to recognise the importance of generalising skills with different people and in different settings. We should be able to recognise different types of progress and celebrate the achievements and attainments of our pupils.  Our pupils can develop their self-esteem if they and others can celebrate what they have achieved.

Key Stage 2 - Swimming Attainment

Due to the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, we were unable to access pools in the community and training for our staff to safely teach swimming.
During this time however we have continued to use the hydrotherapy pool and all our year 6 pupils (among others) practiced their safety skills which include but are not limited to;
  • Getting into and out of the pool safely  
  • Learning how to behave safely in a pool area 
  • Blowing bubbles in the water
  • Putting their face in the water
  • Using floatation tools to practice moving in the water 
  • Picking objects up from the bottom of the pool
  • Following instructions

We aim for all our pupils in Key Stage 2 and above to access larger pools on an annual basis over a term (at least) to develop their swimming skills and water safety, enabling us to provide more accurate assessment data in this area from the end of the 2022/23 academic year.

2022/23 - KEY STAGE 2 - 25 METRE SWIMMING ASSESSMENT DATA WILL BE DISPLAYED HERE
