SUMMER LEAVERS 2022
This is another year of extraordinary issues for our cohort of 12 Year 11 leavers. During their Key Stage 4 schools were closed to most pupils by the Government three times as part of the national COVID-19 measures and it was announced in January 2022 that pupils would return to taking externally marked exams again in the summer.
In 2021-22 all but two year 11 pupils were single rolled. 5 (41.7%) are girls and 7 (58.3%) are boys. All of these students sat at least one exam, either at CEDARS base or with an Alternative Provider. 100% of those sitting exams achieved at least one qualification.
12/12 of those taking an exam sat Functional Skills or the English Language GCSE exam and 12 (100%) passed. This is on par with the results from summer 2021, and reflects the predicted grades for this cohort.
10/12 of those taking an exam sat Functional Skills or the Maths GCSE exam and 10 (83.3%) passed. This is on par with the results from summer 2021, and reflects the predicted grades for this cohort.
Students also achieved passes in Art & Design, Biology, Catering & Hospitality, City & Guilds Writing and Maths, Construction, Creative Media, D&T Product Design, Hair & Beauty, Health & Social Care, Information Technology, Literature and Sport.
One of our leavers is a ‘Looked After Children’.
None of our leavers had Special Educational Needs.
The key indicator for Y11 success is NEET (Not in Education, Education or Training) prevention as all PRU students are regarded as ‘high RONI‘ (Risk Of Neet Index). 11/12 (91.7%) of leavers had a year 12 destination arranged by July. The CEDARS SSS measurement of NEET/non-NEET is to check whether pupils are attending education/training during the last week of September and is not a presumed destination figure.
