Our school is expected to set challenging and aspirational targets for every child, every year. The school leader is focused on absolute pupil progress and attainment and on achieving the quality of provision that makes Ark aspirations achievable. Leaders must ensure that the sum of individual pupil targets equate to our expected whole academy targets.

The expectation is that 100% of children will be targeted to reach the Ark minimum attainment target, irrespective of starting points. Those pupils at or above expected on-entry attainment will meet Ark’s minimum level of progress, resulting in above average attainment.
