Pupil Achievement

Substantial and sustained progress across the curriculum and in ILPM targets, pupils make substantial and sustained progress, developing excellent knowledge, understanding and skills, considering their different starting points.

Strong progress:  in a wide range of subjects (including English and maths) and in ILPM targets, pupils make consistently strong progress, developing secure knowledge, understanding and skills, considering their different starting points
