Pupil progress meetings are useful for school improvement

You don’t need to have pupil progress meetings, but they are a useful way to discuss the data that teachers and other staff have collected while assessing and tracking pupils’ progress.

Use these meetings to reflect on the progress individual pupils or groups have made throughout the term, and identify any gaps in your provision or areas for improvement.

You can then plan next steps to improve attainment. We’ve listed some suggestions at the end of this article. 

You can consider a different approach

Instead of pupil progress meetings, your SLT can keep track of assessment data and raise any discrepancies with the relevant teachers.

Teachers can also raise concerns about individual pupils on an ad hoc basis.

Schedule termly meetings with the relevant people

Who should attend

This will depend on the size of your school.
