Progress & Attainment

Progress for pupils and students is tracked carefully from their starting point at St Dominic’s every term against national curriculum outcomes. We also use a range of other assessment tools to measure progress in maths and English each year to review spelling, reading, comprehension and numeracy.
We measure pupils and students’ progress in holistic outcomes through:
  • The PASS test measuring pupil/student attitude to self and school
  • The CAT test measuring cognitive ability
  • Progress in communication, independence and self-development, enrichment and learning

Pupils and students’ progress against their EHCP outcomes is tracked using provision map.

Pupils and students work towards a broad range of qualifications over time, developing the skills they need to have success in public examinations.
  • At Key Stage 2, pupils are able to take the end of key stage tests.
  • At Key Stage 4, pupils attain qualifications in broad a range of subjects. This includes BTEC, GCSE and functional skills.
  • At Key Stage 5, students work towards GCSEs, BTEC, functional skills and AS/A level.
