In our inspection in June 2012 the lead inspector was aware of the 4Matrix system that our school uses and was keen to point it out to the rest of her team. In my meeting with the lead Inspector on achievement I presented her with the press release pack for our Year 11 Summer fine grades with a comparison with the same period last year. The predictions we were making for our 5 A* - C (E&M) and 5 A* - C were accepted without any further discussions. The same data was also able to show the progress being made by our EAL students and this ticked off another box. At The Brittons Academy we also use our fine grades data to show the 3 levels of progress being made in English and mathematics. Again this was accepted without any real further discussion. 4Matrix is clearly fit for purpose and I will continue to develop how we use it next year.
