Would people be willing to share formats they use for PPMs? I am particularly interested in any ones used in EYFS and KS1. Would love to see how others are managing it and ensuring that enough data is captured but also ensuring the meeting doesn't last longet than 4 hours!
Ours have always been fairly unstructured. People bring along the data they have and talk to it. We use pupil progress grids which show the progress each term, although these are not so useful for EYFS and Year 1 as they're based on NC levels. We use a data tracking program (itr@ck) to track progress by year group, class, gender, SEN, FSM, EAL etc. so data from that might be used too.
Would be happy to share the pupil progress grids we use (I think they come from our LA) but as I say, they're probably more useful for Year 2 upwards.
We have worked on our FS form this year - I can send it when I'm back in school. I'll send our Y1-6 when I'm on the PC. What has saved us a lot of time is getting people to fill in as much as possible before the meeting so we're just talking through it and deciding on any action that's needed.
Every teacher was asked to present data in their own formats at our last pp meetings. It really changed the way the meetings went as previously we filled in data during meetings and this took up most of the time. This time teachers were able to really talk about their own classes and seemed much better 'clued up'.
Would love to see some eyfs examples though if anyone has any that they wouldn't mind sharing.
When the new eyfs starts in September we have been told by our authority to track progress through the development matters age bands by deciding whether a child is entering, developing in or confident in an age band for each of the aspects. We haven't been given an idea of what is considered expected progress though from start to finish though. To track from one term to the next I have these record sheets. For each term an E, D or C is entered into the appropriate column.
If anyone wants to know in the EYFS PPM format E/D/S bands are a bit like what Chilli uses. They are the DM bands broken down into sub bands with Emerging, Developing and Secure being the EDS. Just helps to show progress within quite a large DM band.
