Hemsworth Arts and Community College near Pontefract uses pupil data as the foundation of its personalised learning programme for students.Maths teacher Kate Roche demonstrates how she uses a traffic light system in the classroom, to keep herself and pupils informed on a regular basis as to their progress. She outlines how this formal and informal data is then used by her to inform her lesson planning. Beyond the classroom, the schools data manager keeps records constantly updated on the internal computer database. This information is then accessed by the head of maths and the assistant principal, who evaluate the progress of Year 11 students and identify specific pupils to meet with the headteacher - some for a pat on the back, others to be further encouraged. Integral to the school's personalised learning programme is the involvement of parents, who are invited into school regularly with their children to discuss progress.
