Tracking students is about supporting students, not about Ofsted. One of the problems faced by Heads of Department is how to keep track of what is going on across a department. This is where our use of Google Docs comes in. As each data collection phase finishes, I identify those young people who aren’t making sufficient progress. What is important to note here is that the expected (or predicted grade) is a professional judgement by the teacher.
All I do is add the name into the document and then the team enter any intervention strategies. At GCSE this overview allows me to get involved at an early stage.
