Who's in Your Corner - Newcastle Safeguarding Children's Board Annual Conference
Who's in your corner is this year’s Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board’s (NSCB) Conference. The theme this year is Mental Health and Wellbeing which was identified as a priority at last year’s conference. The event is for young people aged 13 – 21 years of age. We have a number of young people who are keynote speakers presenting their experiences and we have planned, with support from young people, interactive workshops. By popular demand we are continuing to have a ‘question and answer time’ which gives young people an opportunity to ask adult decision makers questions about mental health services.
It would be really helpful if you could promote this event with your students and colleagues. The event is in the school holidays and the aim is to get more young people to attend the event at Newcastle Civic Centre on 30th August, 2018 as possible. Any promotion would be appreciated before Schools break up for their summer holidays..

AWL Pupil Tracking System for Primary and Middle Schools
The pupil tracking system is a simple way for school to analyse children’s data. Schools update children’s half termly results onto the tracker, then the tracker produces a range of reports about the data, for example showing children’s current results against their previous key stage performance or comparing results of children with EAL or Pupil Premium.
It is the complete assessment package, that supports entry, sharing of pupil attainment and progress, from Early Year, through to KS2.
Bespoke, to work with any Assessment Language a school uses.
The system uses Assessment Manager 7 (AM7), Arbor, Integris and other Web based systems, as a ‘data warehouse’ to securely store data. The data can then be exported to the tracking system. This allows us, for example, to update the tracker on request with current attendance figures.
Inputting directly into the tracker takes away the process of you putting it into a system/program, for us then to export and transfer to the tracker….we have basically cut out the middle man.
Key aims of this system
? The system is simple –it can easily be understood at a glance by internal and external users of the data
? The system provides users with key performance indicators about the attainment and progress of children, which informs self-evaluation and form a good starting point for demonstrating progress to Ofsted
? The system enables users to determine with confidence whether or not children are on track to meet the expected standards in the statutory assessments which will take place at the ends of KS1 and KS2
