RAG Rating

Making the process more meaningful

Making RAG Rating Count

CLUE: It's all about the interventions!

The RAG rating process is a chance to take stock and identify which students are at risk, who's on track and who's excelling. This can be useful checkpoints in the year but the real impact and learning begins with agreeing the appropriate interventions for each student.

These interventions might be as simple as 'attend revision classes for GCSE maths', 'undertake specific catch-up work in a particular subject' or 'complete extension reading'.

It;s not enough just to set them for each student though- it's vital that we measure their progress with their targets and adjust the intervention as necessary to ensure they're having the greatest impact possible.

The first thing we'd really like you to do is to share all of the ways in which you stretch, challenge and support your learners to achieve as highly as they possibly can.

What works for you and your learners in getting them to move from being at risk to achieving highly? What do you do to ensure high-performing learners remain that way? Are there any interventions that have had particularly high levels of success when it looked like it was all going to go wrong?

If every member of staff in the organisation shared their ideas this week then we'd all be equipped with lots of strategies and interventions to try this year and beyond!

OPTION 1- This differentiation magazine is filled with ideas about effectively stretching and challenging our learners to help them achieve the best. Click here to read.

OPTION 2- Access this written guide to effective target setting on our Planning for Learning blog. Click here to read.

OPTION 3- Watch the target setting and measuring progress in the classroom below for some ideas. This was designed for new staff (by Hannah Tyreman and Lawrence Hill at Reading College) but it contains some gems that anyone could use.

Target Setting and Measuring Progress


Can you offer 20 minutes of your time to have a video hangout with Hannah Tyreman talking about what you do that works with your learners? We can record it just with audio if you wish! Please email her: Hannah.Tyreman@reading-college.ac.uk

Alternatively, and perhaps even better, record your own video/audio with colleagues and send it across to her!
