At Greenacre School pupil outcomes are outstanding. Our judgement is based not only on our progress data but on a range of rich measures that are vital in preparing our young people for life beyond Greenacre. Our Outcomes measure consist of four pillars: Pupil Progress – how pupils progress in core subjects over time; Emotional Wellbeing – how pupil’s behaviour and readiness to learn improve over time; Teaching and Learning Outcomes – the progress observed and captured through the quality assurance process; and Accreditations and Destinations – the qualifications pupils attain and their journey into further education, training and employment, after Greenacre.
Detailed analysis of end of key and within key stage pupils progress shows that the majority of pupils make exceptional progress in most areas of learning and development. All students at the end of Year 11 remained at the school to continue their education in year 12 and students who left the school at the end of 16-19 study moved on to positive destinations. This is detailed in the following data analysis.
As a result of the personalised approach to learning for all pupils there has been no material difference in terms of education outcomes for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) funding compared to non-PPG pupils. Further information is provided under the Pupil Premium Strategy.
