Flight Paths

At Christ's College, we strive to ensure all students make good academic progress. Throughout the year, each student will sit three summative assessments in each subject that enable Subject Leaders and Class Teachers to monitor a student's academic progress.

We use flight paths to help us to assess whether a student is working above, on or below their expected trajectory. The trajectory for each subject is calculated using the Department for Education attainment 8 estimates.  The Key Stage 2 Reading and Maths scores contribute towards producing a fine point score. This fine point score can then be mapped to an attainment 8 estimate for each element of progress 8 using the latest tables released by the DfE. These attainment 8 estimates allow us to produce target grades for each subject.

The flight paths are kept inside a student's exercise books and are a tool that helps them to monitor how they are progressing as they move through their 5 year journey with us.

Below are examples of each flight path, indicating the expected trajectory for a student at each target grade.
