  9. School progress – general / anticipated • s1 August 2010 – Es & Os levels 2 / 3 • what & how – principles of curriculum design • partnership working with primary colleagues • s1/s2 August 2011– level 3 consolidation & progression • wider achievement / 4 contexts of learning • ongoing work with primary colleagues • s3 August 2012 – year 3 of the bge –levels 3 / 4 • increased personalisation & choice • breadth & depth of learning • preparation for transition to the senior phase

  10. Build on current strengths Challenge 5-14 STANDARD GRADE Application INTERMEDIATE Breadth

  11. School progress – general / anticipated • Transition to senior phase – august 2013 • informed choice / identified pathways to meet pupil needs • Attainment pathways – national levels 3 – 7 in place for 2013 – 14 • course outlines • assessment guidance • exam timings • background of the BGE experience • additional resourcing • professionalism of staff • pupil profiles – tracking, recording, reporting

  12. Expectations - Renfrewshire • “ Most young people will be secure at level 4 Literacy and Numeracy by the end of s3 “ • “Most young people will be secure at level 4 in a range of curriculum areas, by the end of s3” • “The achievement and attainment of all young people will improve in relation to that achieved by previous cohorts “ • “ In s3, pupils will begin to consider whether , and to what extent they will continue to carry forward their interest in particular subjects into qualifications , and at what levels … “

  13. Transition To The Senior Phase • learning & teaching issues • progress through S1 – S3 (broad general education) • assessment evidence, profiling and reporting • preparation for the new national qualifications • meeting pupil needs • pupil / parent concerns • number / level of qualifications • expectations of / for fe, he, work • will it work ?

  14. Planning the senior phase - schools • At authority level we feel it is important to adopt a consistent and coherent approach in all schools • We have agreed on the S3 model and it is appropriate to have a transition to the senior phase that builds on that strength and also sustains the excellent consortium arrangements across every secondary • We are proposing a model that allows the needs of all pupils to be met, includes developing skills for learning, life and work and addresses the importance of a transition to the vocational phase that is flexible,adaptable and aspirational • We have taken cognisance of emerging practice across the country and built in more time per subject to provide better chances of improved performance

  15. Senior Phase – key messages • Builds on Es and Os experienced and achieved through the broad, general education • S4-S6 in schools and 16-18 out of school • Phase for building up qualifications portfolio • Partners to plan coherent learner experiences • A flexible system that offers choice, personalisation and supported pathways • S3 profile from BGE supports transition

  16. Planning the senior phase - schools Based on the S3 structure, there are various models of how S4 should look : • Model 1 – choice of 5 subjects at various levels (National 4 or 5 predominantly) • Model 2 – choice of 7 subjects at various levels (National 4 or 5 predominantly) • Model 3 – choice of 8 subjects (Nationals 4,5 , 6) • Model 4 – choice of 9 subjects (Nationals 3,4 or 5) • nb possible changes after s4 for s5 and / or s6 • nb possible changes after 55 for s6

  17. Planning the senior phase – Parents & Pupils • It is important now for pupils and their parents to see the years S4 – S6 as a block of time for which a planned approach should be prepared : there are many possible pathways to accreditation and beyond that pupils might take over that three year period :

  18. Old model S4 8 subjects S5 5 subjects S6 4 subjects

  20. Broad General Education Senior Phase S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 2nd level 2nd/3rd level 3rd level National 3 National 4 National 4/5 2nd level 3rd level 3rd level National 4 National 5 Higher 3rd level 3rd / 4thlevel 4th level National5 Higher 3rd/4th level 3rd /4th level 4th level National 5 Higher Higher 3rd level 4th level 4th level National 5/Higher Higher

  21. Proposed model for Renfrewshire • 7 courses in s4 • provides additional time for study • facilitates wider experiences • maximises number of qualifications in context of a cfe • addresses pupil / parental concerns • meets the needs of our pupils • provides consistency across renfrewshire • further informed choice in s5 ( 5 courses ) but assumes progression in study eg national 5 > 6 ; national 4 > 5 ; national 3 > 4 ; skills for work • further choice for s6 to meet student needs eg return to subjects not taken up in s5 or previously in s4 • encourages positive leaver destinations : work / college / university • supported by all secondary schools in renfrewshire

  22. Next steps : • any questions / issues to be raised at this stage ? • background briefing available on the council website at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk • written comments / questions welcomed for education & leisure services at walter.hayburn@renfrewshire.gov.uk • This presentation will be placed on the school website
