Sea Margate massage phuket One Slough primary school reported Compensated dating Slough a of pupils every year at the end of Year 4. The varied, but in one recent year no fewer than 12 girls transferred; Compensated dating Slough would have been regarded as borderline in terms of plus chances. Travelling to schools outside Slough can be problematic in terms of transport and can also be expensive — another reason why it is more likely to be middle-class, relatively affluent parents who choose those schools for their children.
Two headteachers said that they felt that more parents would send their children out of borough if transport were easily Belfast sweet czech. However, several headteachers felt that in practice the of children going to Windsor and Maidenhead schools would decline rather than increase, since the closure of the Princess Margaret Royal Free School would reduce the total of secondary school places in the borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Compensated dating Slough make it harder for outsiders in this Female escorts Mansfield county, Slough families to get in.
Slough shares a border with Buckinghamshire, which also operates a selective. Primary headteachers thus become involved in explaining the Bucks system to parents see Section 2. Inevitably, therefore, comparison between the two systems was often made by interviewees. The Bucks test itself is taken as the Slough Berkshire test used to be — in primary schools, on three separate occasions. Although primary headteachers were asked specifically about the Slough plus, about half volunteered the information Valentines escort Halifax they arranged for pupils to take the Bucks exam in their schools.
However, despite the practical problems of arranging the tests, a of headteachers said that they felt the Bucks procedure was much better and fairer than the present Slough system, since tests were spaced out over three different days, and children took them in familiar surroundings. Primary headteachers had the difficult task of explaining how two different admissions systems worked.
One primary headteacher said that her children had no chance of passing the Bucks test, because the passmark was too high. Another primary headteacher, arguing that Slough grammar schools were not true grammar schools see Section 2. Such comments reflect a failure to understand two key facts about plus scores. First, they are age standardised within the population of children taking the test, i. Since the population of children taking the Bucks test will not be identical to the population of children taking the Slough test, who performed the Compensated dating Slough in the two tests would not necessarily obtain the same score.
For the same reason, plus scores are not directly comparable with scores obtained in nationally standardised tests such as CATs. Second, while the Straight massage Acton scores are standardised to Hence performing the same in both South Shields montag shemale would obtain a higher score in Bucks; and so the fact that Bucks has a higher passmark does not necessarily mean that it is more difficult to pass the test.
Interviews revealed that some secondary headteachers shared similar misunderstandings about the Bucks. Slough has more grammar school places than anywhere I know … In Bucks, the [non-selective] secondary Southwest Southall craigslist personals are better, because the grammar schools take a smaller percentage.
This belief is also erroneous, as Slough and Bucks have approximately the same proportion of students in grammar schools. InSlough with 44 per cent was second highest to Bucks, with 47 per cent. InSlough with 45 per cent was marginally ahead of Bucks with 44 per cent Ofsted, The selection test administered by Berkshire in Slough was until taken at the age of 12 rather then At that time, Slough had a middle school system, although the middle schools catered for children ofrather than as in Windsor.
In the context of these interviews, some primary headteachers made it clear that they still regarded the change as a mistake. The main reason given was that children were considered too young to take the test in Year 6, when since the test is taken in November most would be only ten.
Several headteachers argued that many children develop later, and are therefore Should i Islington up with my partner by taking the test at such an early age. Two headteachers felt that they could see ificant changes in Redditch single shot 22 model 67 during the course of Year 6, and that some who were not able to pass the test in November were performing much better by the end of the year.
Some believed that transfer at 12 was preferable for educational reasons. She argued that primary teachers know individual children well, and can therefore provide the kind of support which is particularly needed by children lacking an appropriate parent figure.
Only one primary headteacher put the opposite view secondary headteachers did not raise the subject. Sixth forms and staffing are issues not directly linked with selection at age 11, and so questions about St Keighley sluts were not asked during interviews.
However, a of headteachers pointed out the impact of the selective system in these areas. Sixth forms are popular with Gillingham chat rooms singles, as a primary headteacher noted.
Adult Chat Plymouth
In the context of comprehensive education, it is recognised that schools need to be large in order to produce an economically viable sixth form which can offer a wide range of options 8. It would be difficult for the Slough non-selective schools relatively small yet catering Compensated dating Slough a wide ability range to operate Compensated dating Slough forms, even if they were given permission to do so.
As interviewees saw, enabling individual schools to have sixth forms would mean not only going comprehensive, but reducing Massage parlour central Rugby of schools in Slough see Section 2. At present, students in non-selective schools who reach the age of 16 have up to three options if they wish to continue in full-time education:. Some secondary headteachers reported examples of students moving on to grammar schools at the age of 16, and achieving success in subsequent examinations.
Proposals All american centerfolds Bradford a new sixth form centre at Wexham School may help to meet this need. One point — made by interviewees and generally acknowledged — is that schools without sixth Poole rich men have more difficulty in attracting high-quality teaching staff.
Teacher recruitment is a serious problem at present, and some interviewees expressed the view that it was exacerbated by the selective system in Slough. The non-selective schools lack sixth forms, they have fewer high-ability pupils than a comprehensive, and a greater Compensated dating Slough pupils with learning or behavioural difficulties; they may therefore experience severe Australian babe Gravesend in recruiting teachers.
By contrast, the grammar schools may find it relatively easy to attract staff, but one interviewee pointed out that grammar school teachers lack the opportunity to gain a broad experience.
The selective system disadvantages you for the future, whichever side Compensated dating Slough are on. It would be difficult for a secondary modern teacher going for a head of department job, and for a grammar school teacher going for a job in a comprehensive. It will be evident from the above that a large majority of interviewees were opposed to the current system of selection in Slough. The exceptions were the grammar school headteachers not surprisingly and a few primary headteachers who thought that the system was basically acceptable, though aspects of it could be improved.
However, positive comments such as this were rare, and many interviewees focused on the disadvantages of selection. Most of these have already been discussed at some length elsewhere Beautiful girl sex Swindon this chapter, and so this section will summarise briefly the main points.
Arguments Meet a girl from Bognor Regis favour of or more commonly opposed to selection could be classified in four broad : moralsocialeducational and practical. The moral argument centred on the fundamental issue of dividing children into successes and failures at an early age.
One secondary headteacher observed:. Socially, selection is untenable. One primary headteacher observed:. Until I came here, I had not got a view Compensated dating Slough selection]. Some headteachers expressed the Reigate free sex picture that there are social advantages in a comprehensive education.
A primary headteacher said:. You cannot beat a really good comprehensive. Children should be able to learn and mix with a whole range of people — Speed dating United Kingdom Kidderminster learn to become tolerant, recognise strengths and weaknesses.
The corresponding disadvantage of selection was described by a secondary Bhutanese women looking for men in United Kingdom. Pupils in grammar schools suffer socially — they develop a superior view of life. If they go on to university, they do not have the background for a job in society.
A of educational considerations have been mentioned, and will be briefly recapped. Several headteachers felt that, because the plus is regarded as more important, children may not perform so well in the key stage 2 SATs see Section 2.
Comprehensive education was preferred because it is more flexible — children may be placed in streams or sets, but there is scope for movement:.
There was greater debate in response to a question to secondary headteachers about the impact of comprehensive education on Compensated dating Slough groups of children. A of interviewees thought Lovers playground Torquay the top children in terms of academic ability would fare better in a grammar school. One non-selective headteacher thought that there might be educational but not social reasons to support grammar school education for a small of very gifted children.
Another headteacher, strongly opposed to selection, said that there was. But the losses would be more than compensated for by Compensated dating Slough greater achievement in the rest of the population. However, there was considerable discussion about the best place for borderline above average, but not high-flier children.
The majority view was that such children were better at the top of Online dating Darlington non-selective school than struggling to keep up in a grammar school, although there was Massage rego park York counter-argument that such Backpage massage south Southend on Sea needed the challenge and encouragement which would result from mixing with high-ability students see Section 2.
The arguments quoted above relate to the best type of school for borderline children within a selective system; our main concern here is how they would fare within comprehensive education. A third headteacher agreed that such young people.
They may not achieve their potential. Statistical evidence for the impact of different types of schooling on different ability groups will be discussed in Chapter 4. Many of these problems have been mentioned elsewhere in the present chapter. In primary schools, a lot of time would be spent on matters related to the plus — even if the headteacher was opposed to the selective system and tried to have as little to do with it as possible.
Time could be spent on any or all of the following:. For details, see Section 2. Some primary headteachers also observed that their schools were effectively judged by parents in terms of their perceived success in sending children to grammar school 9. The Year 6 had been a particularly able group, so the pass rate had been high, and parents concluded that the school had improved. The current Year 6 was much weaker, the headteacher Mature escorts Keighley that only one or two would go to grammar school, and was wondering how parents would react.
In non-selective secondary schools, selection can cause different but equally ificant problems. Because they have relatively few The best dating sites Eastbourne pupils, they are unable to support sixth forms and may have difficulty Hot kiss Exeter forming sets to work towards the higher tiers of GCSE see Sections 2.
The converse is that non-selective schools are likely to have an above-average of young people with learning or behavioural difficulties, which can make teaching a challenge. This in turn can cause problems in teacher recruitment, Compensated dating Slough staffing shortages can mean that the quality of teaching and learning suffers: hence there is a danger that non-selective schools can become trapped in a downward spiral from which it is difficult to escape.
Some interviewees argued that there would be no dramatic change. Schools recognised, Russian mistress Bedford course, that they would have to cater for a wider ability range. Some saw great advantages in this:. The presence of more able kids would have a ripple effect — it would raise the performance of the. Commitment, motivation, behaviour would Voluptous sexy in United Kingdom Compensated dating Slough.
It does not happen here [with the current intake]. However, headteachers recognised that a switch to comprehensive education would Nurse Cheshunt massage immediately solve all problems.
A grammar Guest friendly hotels in Cheshunt sukhumvit headteacher wondered how happy his staff would be about the change, and how well Singles club Farnborough would cope. Another grammar school headteacher observed:. Teachers have different skills — mine could not handle the lower-ability children, and those at  might not cope with the academic high fliers.
Interviewees also recognised that major structural change would be necessary, or at least desirable. One headteacher envisaged that the grammar schools would become comprehensives, and the non-selective schools comprehensives. However, the longer-term prospects were considered more Compensated dating Slough.

The [present] climate is always challenging because there are few Compensated dating Slough parents — in a Male strip clubs Middlesbrough county school, there would be a better balance. A set of questions was deed Sonia indian escort in United Kingdom collect the views of all Year 11 students in Slough on the plus test and the selective system in general.
These questions were combined with a standard NFER pupil attitude questionnaire which is administered annually to Year 11 students in Slough. An additional question, deed to assess self-confidence and self-esteem, was included. Names of the current Year 11 cohort were obtained from SBC, and questionnaires were labelled before being despatched to schools.
In addition to obtaining views on selection, we wished to compare the Male models wanted Weymouth and self-esteem of pupils of similar Hot nude Shrewsbury girls in different types of school.
All Slough schools with secondary age pupils were sent questionnaires for their Year 11 students, but three grammar schools refused to take part in the survey although one allowed students to complete the pupil attitude questionnaire anonymously.
As a result, questions relating to selection were answered by a total of students, representing seven non-selective schools, one grammar school and one special school 11 students.
Opportunities for comparing the responses of students from different types of school were therefore limited. Students were first asked whether they had taken the plus test at one of the four Slough grammar schools. The most common reasons given by the students who did not take the test were:. Responses were neatly divided: almost exactly one half said yes, one quarter said no, and the Male stripers Craigavon quarter could not remember.
Those who thought that the test was not fair were asked to explain why they thought. It should be noted that this question was completely open-ended; no suggestions Zip line lava Slough provided, so the students responded in their Purley backpage women for men words.
In summary, the reasons most frequently given were:. I feel it is unfair to Compensated dating Slough a pupils intelligence at age 11, how can you base the rest of someones life on a test they took at age 11?
Euro Spa And Massage Bootle
Compensated dating Slough puts people down, and makes them think they are not clever, because they did not get into grammar school. You can get them right by luck! The SATs are much better! Because you may be really bright and deserve to Free trial match com 2017 in United Kingdom to a grammar school, but the nerves get too much for you.
There are interesting similarities between these views and the views of headteachers discussed in Chapter 2. Several headteachers also argued that children develop later, and are therefore disadvantaged by taking the test at such an early age Section 2. It might be expected that grammar school students — who by definition had passed the plus test — would be less likely to consider it unfair. In fact, 18 per cent of grammar school respondents took that view, compared with 26 per cent from non-selective schools: a lower proportion, but the difference was not statistically ificant.
There was however a different emphasis in the reasons given by grammar school students. Not one of the 22 students in this category thought that the two-tier system was fundamentally wrong; instead, they focused on the random nature of the test: six said that it was not a good test of knowledge, and four that it was wrong to be judged on your performance on a single day.
Candidates are too young and get too stressed over it. Children should not be put under so much pressure at so young an age, it depends how you feel on the day of the test also, getting in should depend on your work throughout your primary Oldham sister cities life.
This suggests that some children, who were generally confident in their own ability, nevertheless worried that their performance on the day might not do them justice. Again, this reflects the concerns voiced by primary headteachers about the possibility of children — for whatever reason — performing badly on the day when the tests are held see Section 2.
Students were asked which secondary school they most wanted to go to at the age of The responses of students who named a different school are Compensated dating Slough in Table 3. Type of school No. As Table 3. On the contrary, a third of the children apparently wanted to leave the borough, but found themselves in Slough schools instead. There were also a substantial of children who wanted to go to a Slough non-selective school, other than the one in which they eventually found themselves.
Students who said they wanted to go to a different school were asked to give their reasons, and these are consistent with the analysis outlined in the paragraph. The most common reasons were:. Reasons given by students specifying a Slough grammar school were compared with those of students naming a non-selective school in Slough.
Not surprisingly, the first two reasons Massage di Rossendale above were by far the most important to the would-be grammar school students:. You get to do more work and courseworks that help you. Good discipline and responsibilities. I would like to go to — Grammar School because you find there clever people and that will ever push you to work very hard like.
Those who wanted to go to a different non-selective school were more likely to say that they wanted to be with their friends or close to home, although Compensated dating Slough reputation of the school was also a key issue. These responses suggest that only some disappointments — perhaps a minority — I love Purley girls due to the plus. To explore this further, the analysis was repeated for students in non-selective Compensated dating Slough only i.
More than half 57 per cent of those who said they took the test and must therefore have failed said that they had wanted to go to the school that they were attending; only 18 per cent said that they wanted a place in a Slough Chinese sex Wallasey school.
So why did they take the plus test? It may be that some parents insisted on their children taking the test, while the children themselves actually wanted to go to a non-selective school.
Looking for love partner in United Kingdom, we should note that the students were Compensated dating Slough with hindsight, describing the way they had felt some five years earlier, and their memories may have been coloured by their experiences in the intervening years.
However, almost one in five 19 per cent; four per cent did not reply maintained, towards the end of their secondary education, that their school was not right for. They were asked to say why they thought another school would have been better. Most students responded by identifying the shortcomings as they saw it of their present school; the Asian world massage Oldham ok common were:.
Teacher shortage is currently a serious problem in Slough, particularly in some of the non-selective schools; it is interesting that the students themselves identified this as a major source of dissatisfaction:.

Because I am not receiving the right amount and standard of education I should be. I am being predicted low Russian mistress Great Yarmouth and I know I could do better if we have more qualified full-time teachers. Other problems relating to teachers included allegations that they lacked skills in teaching, classroom management and dealing with bullying; however, many comments were Compensated dating Slough personal students claiming that teachers had treated them unfairly and should probably be disregarded.
Students were given a Escorts port Solihull of ten statements, and asked to indicate which were true for. Responses are Mid singles Kidderminster in Table 3. The responses of grammar school students were compared with those from non-selective schools.
It is important to remember, however, that only one grammar school was involved, so differences may be due to the individual Compensated dating Slough rather than school type.
Only two items were ificantly different: grammar school students were more confident about coping with Compensated dating Slough things 72 per cent, against 54 per cent of non-selective students while non-selective students were more likely to say that they were good at organising their work 54 per cent, compared with 46 per cent of grammar school students. Factor analysis suggested two distinct themes: organisation Items 6 and 7 and general self-image all other items Washington the person Item 3, which did not relate closely to either factor.
In terms of organisation, non-selective school students gave the more positive response, but the difference was not ificant. The range of scores suggests that the differences are due more to variation between individual schools than to school type. The questionnaire Compensated dating Slough a standard set of NFER questions deed to measure student attitudes to school. This part of the questionnaire was completed by Year 11 students at a second grammar school, so the scope for comparison was better, though still limited.
Students were first asked to agree or disagree with a series of questions relating to their school. On most of the statements, the difference between grammar school and non-selective school responses was highly ificant. Grammar school students How to date Dagenham women more likely to say that:.
It seems that grammar school students recognised and shared the high opinion in which their schools were held, while students at non-selective schools seemed to enjoy school more and accept the value of school work and school rules.
Surprisingly, perhaps, grammar school students felt more often that they were bored in lessons, their work was a waste of time, and they often counted the minutes until a lesson ended.
Britney Stevenage escort was more often true for non-selective students that their work was interesting, and they worked as hard as they. A possible explanation is that grammar school students find their lessons insufficiently challenging and therefore boringwhile non-selective students find them more difficult but therefore Newport wife swinger interesting.
Lady boy massage Eastbourne Compensated dating Slough of questions about teachers also yielded very clear distinctions between responses from different types of school. Grammar school students were more likely to Man man massage Aberdeen that most or all of their teachers:.
Clearly, grammar school teachers are perceived as being more strict and in control than teachers in non-selective schools. In accordance with this, grammar school students were much more likely to say that the discipline in their school was too strict 37 per cent, compared with 12 per cent in non-selective schools and that the school Bristol bi sex too many rules 55 per cent compared with 30 per cent.
Escorts Hayes backpage, two thirds said that they were usually Compensated dating Slough always well-behaved in Year 10, and a much larger majority 85 per cent gave that Norwich dating in United Kingdom with reference to Year However, students in non-selective schools gave a more positive assessment of their behaviour that those in grammar schools.
Asked to rate the preparation they had received for the future, grammar Babe Glasgow students were more likely to agree that their Year 11 education had:. A of students actually wrote on the form that they had not yet received any guidance; one or two made specific reference to careers interviews, and it may be Compensated dating Slough students saw careers guidance exclusively in those terms.
In sum, grammar schools were seen to provide the best general education, while non-selective schools were better at preparing students for working life probably seen as less important in grammar schools, where students would be expected to continue in full-time education for several years. A factor analysis of the responses reported above was undertaken, and four factors were identified, which can be broadly described as follows:.
However, a comparison New Basingstoke shemales the factor Compensated dating Slough obtained by individual schools was revealing.
In terms of good behaviour, one grammar school had the lowest score, while the other was in the middle of the range. Only in terms Gay camping Brixton strictness did the two grammar schools clearly have the highest scores.
Craigslist St Cloud City Of London Free Stuff
This confirms the conclusion reached in the section, that the difference between individual schools is greater than the difference between school types. Only a small of students all from non-selective schools expected to get a GNVQ Part 1, and there appeared to be a degree of confusion, Compensated dating Slough some of them apparently expected to get as many as eight or nine.
In order to facilitate comparison, an expected total point score was calculated for each student who answered the question about GCSEs. The of expected D-G grades was multiplied by 2. Adding Rochdale private girls two figures yielded an expected total point score.
The overall mean score was We wished to know whether there was a difference Premiere escorts Newcastle under Lyme types of school, over and above the difference due to varying levels of ability.
We were able to match the student questionnaire responses with CAT scores for individual pupils obtained when they were in Year 9. We Stoke on Trent chocolate models com undertook a multiple regression analysis, using predicted GCSE score as the outcome.
The analysis confirmed the strong correlation between ability and predicted GCSE score. However, it revealed that, even after allowing for CAT score, there was a ificant difference in the predictions of grammar school students and those in non-selective schools. It must Compensated dating Slough remembered that we are talking about GCSE scores predicted by the students themselves, and of course their predictions may not be accurate.
But either way, the finding in the paragraph is ificant. If the difference is not as great as predicted, it shows that the grammar school pupils have a great deal more confidence and higher expectations relative to their ability than those in non-selective schools. Mount Dartford college girls will be presented in Chapter 4 to support the former view, i. However, the two options are not mutually exclusive; there may also be truth in the hypothesis that being in a grammar school increases confidence and raises expectations.
Students were asked when they thought they would leave full-time education. Responses of grammar school students and those in non-selective schools are compared in Table 3.

The showed that, after allowing for ability, the probability of a grammar school student wishing to go on to HE was 1.
We were particularly interested in that group of young people, Adult world Hastings United Kingdom within what might be called the borderline zone it is possible to compare the performance of students of the same ability level in Saint Albans of Saint Albans escort Compensated dating Slough of school.
Their achievements will be examined in Chapter 4; we also wished to examine their views, as reflected in the Year 11 questionnaire, to see if type of school appeared to influence them in any way.
Compensated dating Slough
We defined the borderline zone in terms Compensated dating Slough CAT scores young people who are above average in terms Free trader Bolton county Bolton ability, but not academic high fliers.
Some students with CAT scores in that range will be in grammar Swingers club Hastings or, others in non-selective schools. Of the students who completed the Year 11 questionnaire, had CAT scores in the relevant range: 46 were in a grammar school and 85 in non-selective schools.
The analysis described in earlier sections of this chapter was repeated for this group. On most issues the views of the group Compensated dating Slough representative of the whole cohort, and differences between grammar school students and those in non-selective schools were similar to those already noted.
However, given that the analysis was confined to a relatively Compensated dating Slough group in terms of ability it is striking that there Independent ts escort Worcester still Compensated dating Slough very ificant difference in terms of future expectations.
In terms of GCSE success, grammar school students in the borderline zone expected an average total point score Massage Gateshead creative loafing Indian students in Eastbourne would be expected, borderline students in non-selective schools expected better than the average for their schools.
Nevertheless, there is a big difference between expected total point scores of It is right to note that even our restricted borderline zone covers a range albeit a limited range of ability; it is true that most students with Slough weekly escort CAT score of will be in grammar schools, while most of those with will not. Clearly this will have an impact on expectations, but is it enough to explain such a gap?
In this case, after taking of ability in terms of exact CAT score, the grammar school students expected The impact of a grammar school place was even greater for borderline students than for the cohort as a. Nearly three quarters 72 per cent of the borderline grammar school students expected to go to university — almost as high a percentage as in Compensated dating Slough whole sample of grammar school students. Within non-selective schools, 45 per cent expected to do so.
Again, allowance needs to be made for varying levels of ability within the borderline zone, so the logistic regression analysis was repeated for this group of students. The demonstrated that, within the borderline zone and after allowing for ability, grammar school students are three times as likely to Most educated man in Gosport plans for higher education than students in non-selective schools.
In Section 2. Our analysis suggests that those concerns were fully justified. A range of statistical analyses was undertaken, using national value-added datasets as well as those provided by SBC. The overall aim was to compare the progress and performance of.
For some of the analyses, we focused particularly on students in the borderline zone, i. The key stage 3 of young people who took the tests in were compared with their CAT scores from the same year.
CAT scores were available for two grammar schools and six of the seven non-selective schools. Not surprisingly, average CAT scores were higher in the grammar schools than in the non-selective schools However, there was an overlap between the range of CAT scores represented in different types of school: there were students Date night ideas in Walsall United Kingdom scores as low as 97 in grammar schools, and as high as in non-selective schools.
As would be expected, there were positive correlations between CAT scores and key stage 3.
However, in most schools there were some pupils whose key stage 3 were well below expectations based on their CAT scores; in some of the non-selective schools, there Stoke on Trent bridge massage parlour substantial s in this category. Key stage 2 for were compared with key stage 3 for Data was available for students in three grammar schools and five non-selective schools, although in some cases it did not represent the whole cohort.
For one non-selective school, there was data for only one student, so this was ignored. Overall correlations were highest for mathematics 0. The increase in mean levels attained was greater in grammar schools than in non-selective schools; this is not surprising, but the difference was considerable.
In order to explore this issue further, progress in terms of increase in level between key stage 2 and key stage 3 was calculated for each individual student, and the mean individual increase calculated for each school.
For mathematics, each of the three Compensated dating Slough schools had a mean increase of at least two levels; the highest increase Nuru massage in Crewe county a Compensated dating Slough school was 1.
For Dating Morley county Morley, grammar schools had a mean increase of at least 1.
For English, the difference between school types was not so stark, although grammar schools still reflected a greater increase: they were in the range Compensated dating Slough. The increase in average level obtained varied from 1.
Although, as the above figures demonstrate, there was variation between individual schools, it is very clear that young people in grammar schools are making much more progress than their peers in the non-selective schools of Slough. There are a of possible explanations, which are not mutually exclusive. Social factors may also have an impact, and the proportion of pupils in Slough grammar schools who qualify for FSM is well below the borough average.
A multiple regression analysis was therefore carried out, with key stage 3 as the outcome measures. Variables included were average key stage 2 level, key stage 2 level for the relevant subject, sex of pupil, school percentage FSM and school type grammar or non-selective. The showed Fairfax Batley massage, after allowing for all other factors, school type was highly ificant in all four outcomes.
More specifically, regardless of prior attainment, being in a grammar school Crawley United Kingdom singles dance. A similar multiple regression analysis of Slough GCSE showed that, after allowing for key stage Massage by tracie Huddersfield performance and sex, type of school was again a highly ificant factor.
Being in a grammar school added an extra 6. With reference to Section 3. It is no doubt true that academically able young people learn faster and therefore make more progress than others, but it is also likely that students irrespective of their own Carlisle ms massage make more progress in a climate of high achievement and expectations.
The latter hypothesis accords with the findings of Shuttleworth and Dalynoted in Section 1. The main purpose of this research is not to see how performance in grammar schools compares with performance in non-selective schools — grammar schools students would of course be expected to outperform other students, although the research has demonstrated the extent to which type of school influenceseven when prior attainment is taken into.
The main objective is to assess whether Slough students would perform better or worse under a comprehensive.
To do this, we No draping massage Dundee to compare the achievements of all Slough students in both types of school with those of students in LEAs which have a fully comprehensive system, taking of differences in ability and contextual factors such as the of students eligible for free school meals.
GCSE in showed that Slough was slightly above the national average on a of indicators.
However, these figures do not take into any background or contextual data. A value-added analysis was therefore undertaken, using key stage 3 as a baseline. The national value-added dataset was used in order Mint beauty salon Acton compare the performance of Slough students with those in comprehensive LEAs. The showed that, after allowing for prior attainment mean level at key stage 3sex and FSM, Slough students performed better than those in comprehensive schools in terms of total GCSE point City of London online yard sales and average score.
The differences were not great 1. Slough students also achieved ificantly above average in a range Royal Leamington Spa blaze escort subjects: mathematics, food technology, resistant materials, business studies, information technology and Spanish — the latter two were particularly good. Compensated dating Slough, were ificantly below average in English, history and double science. In order to explore these findings further, we looked at the take-up of subjects in Slough compared with the national picture.
This yielded some interesting. Take-up in Slough was low for:. The high take-up of religious studies is probably Compensated dating Slough to the fact that Buy 2cb online Grays has two Roman Catholic secondary schools where the subject is compulsory. The reason for other differences is not entirely clear, but some hypotheses can be suggested. If the non-selective schools in Slough Lowestoft erotic vacation unable to offer a second modern foreign language, this could for the low take-up of German and Spanish and also the high take-up of French at GCSE since a large of students would have no choice about which language to.
The high take-up of single science, and correspondingly low Korean girls Bedford of double science, could be due to some non-selective schools either lacking the facilities needed to run the double award course for the majority of students, or believing Real Grays threesome substantial s of their students would not have the ability to benefit from it.
The latter hypothesis would be in accordance with the fact that attainment was Compensated dating Slough for the Slough students who did take double science see. The high attainment in Spanish is related to the low take-up, in that the only Slough school offering Spanish is one of Free sex chat room in Nottingham grammar schools.
The analysis described above shows that Slough students as a whole are performing well compared with the national average in terms of GCSE scores. In order to explore this further, and identify the impact of the Slough system on students of varying ability, a multilevel analysis was carried out see Appendix II with four different outcome variables: GCSE total point score, average point score, mathematics score and English score. Once again, sex, average key stage 3 level and percentage of FSM Sensual massages Londonderry County Borough United Kingdom were used as background variables.
The graphs produced illustrate the link between key stage 3 level and each GCSE outcome for Slough grammar school students, Slough non-selective school students and students at comprehensive schools in other LEAs.
At the bottom end of the ability range, students in Slough non-selective schools perform slightly better than those in comprehensive schools in terms of total GCSE point score, and to a lesser extent in terms of average point score and mathematics score.
At the top end, Slough grammar school students appear to perform slightly less well in English and mathematics than those in comprehensive schools; for total and average point score, the difference is hardly noticeable. The main difference, Colchester bodybuilder gay, occurs towards the middle of Tumblr shower massage in United Kingdom ability range key stage 3 level — the only place where there are students in all three types of school.
The precise vary with the outcome, but in general the grammar school students perform better than those in comprehensive schools, and the students in Slough non-selective schools do not perform as. Table 4. Total score On all four outcomes, Slough grammar schools students are ahead of students in comprehensive schools. Those in Slough non-selective schools Where to find vietnamese prostitutes in Redditch equal to comprehensive schools in mathematics, and only 0.
It must be remembered that this analysis takes of the value added in only the last two years of compulsory education. The impact Single guys in Hemel Hempstead United Kingdom different types of secondary schooling is perhaps more Sisters massage South Croydon to be felt during key stage 3, so a comparable value-added analysis was carried out for key stageusing key stage 2 as a baseline.
The national value-added dataset was again used in order to compare the performance of Slough students with those in comprehensive LEAs. The showed that, after allowing for prior attainment mean level at key stage 3sex and percentage of students qualifying for free school meals, Slough students performed ificantly better than those in comprehensive schools in terms of mathematics 0.
A multilevel analysis of key stage data was also undertaken see Appendix II. The were similar to those relating to GCSE score, but even more striking. Students at the bottom of the ability range performed well in Slough non-selective schools compared with comprehensives except in science, where there was no distinguishable difference.
Students at the top end performed less well in grammar schools than Compensated dating Slough comprehensives. In the middle overlapping ability range, there were marked Bury house call massage between the three types of school; Slough grammar school students performed much better than comprehensive schools students, and students in Slough non-selective schools performed considerably worse.
These are illustrated in Table 4. Average level 5. On all four outcome measures, grammar school students are at least 0. Those in Slough non-selective schools are consistently below, the difference ranging from 0. It is not possible to carry out a single value-added analysis for the whole of secondary education, since the required Compensated dating Slough is not available for a single cohort.
However, it can be inferred from Table 4. We have seen that, at both key stage Prostitution in nogales Portsmouth and GCSE, the performance of Slough students grammar and non-selective schools together was higher than that of students Nigerian dwarf goats South Croydon comprehensive LEAs.
Is this due to the selective system in Slough? Possibly, but the evidence is insufficient to make such an assumption. For although we were able to control for prior attainment, sex and percentage FSM, there are other factors which could also influence the outcome. One possible factor is ethnicity. We were specifically asked to explore the impact of Compensated dating Slough education on identified groups of students, including those from different ethnic communities.
However, the national value-added datasets do Compensated dating Slough include information about ethnicity, so we could explore only the data provided by SBC. For both key stage and key stage 3-GCSE, residuals 12 for individual pupils were derived from the multilevel modelling described.
New Barnsley cheap housing residuals for different ethnic groups were then compared, within a the whole Slough sample, b Slough grammar schools and c Slough non-selective schools.
The analysis did not produce any clear evidence that the selective system as such was having a differential impact on students of ethnic minority origin. However, it was interesting to note that, while Indian pupils How to Kettering with a flirting husband both types of school performed ificantly better on all four GCSE outcomes than their white peers, this was true of Pakistani students 45 year old lady in United Kingdom non-selective schools but not those in grammar schools.
What the analysis did demonstrate very clearly was that the progress made by Asian students, particularly those of Indian origin, was generally well above average; since Slough has a high Asian population, this could be one reason for its overall good.
The evidence from the multilevel Girls for date in Taunton contradicts the often expressed view that students of high academic ability benefit most from a grammar school education see Sections 1. On the contrary, it suggests that the selective system advantages particularly the borderline students who just manage to obtain a place in grammar school, and correspondingly disadvantages the borderline students who narrowly fail the plus test.
In order to explore this topic further, borderline students were identified within the cohort which took key stage 3 tests in We could therefore isolate students with a borderline score of see Section 3. No such measure of underlying ability was available for young people in fully comprehensive LEAs, so we selected those with an average key Preston girls looking for boys 2 level of 4.
We identified borderline students in Slough, from two grammar schools and six non-selective schools Most students with the highest CAT scores within the range were in grammar schools, and most of those with the lowest scores were in non-selective schools, but there was considerable overlap throughout the range. For these students, the difference in attainment at key stage 3 was heavily influenced by the type of school they attended. Given that the students concerned are within the same ability band, the differences between the grammar school and non-selective school are very striking.
In science, only six per cent of the borderline students in non-selective schools managed to reach Level 6, while more than half of those in grammar schools did so. For mathematics and English, the non-selective schools are much better; in each case, 45 per cent of the borderline students gained Level 6 or above, but in grammar schools nearly all of the borderline students did Chinese traditional Lincoln clothes. The comparison with the national figures Western women in Cambridge comprehensive schools is only approximate, since, as noted above, a different criterion had to be used for identifying borderline students.
This may help to explain why the English appear to be better for non-selective students in Slough than for the national group; this is somewhat puzzling as it contradicts the findings of the multilevel modelling see Section 4.
For mathematics and science, the figures Aberdeen sexi call the table are in accordance with the findings of the multilevel modelling, i.
This analysis therefore confirms that the impact of the selective system in Slough is felt most keenly by the Compensated dating Slough in this ability band — to the great advantage of some, and the detriment of.

In this chapter we summarise the findings from all three strands of the project, and offer some suggestions for possible action based on the research. The main purpose of the project was to assess the impact on performance of the structure of education in Slough, i.
We did this by examining the progress in value-added Barking college housing made by pupils between Female exotic dancers in Sheffield stage 2 and key stage 3, and also between key stage 3 and GCSE. The statistical analyses described in Section 4.
Slough students obtain higher total point scores and average point scores; the differences are not great, American spa Bournemouth they are statistically ificant. We should be wary, however, of assuming that this positive outcome is the direct result of selection, especially as the differ from those obtained by Jesson, East side club Mansfield gay by NFER in a similar Compensated dating Slough based on data from all selective LEAs Schagen and Schagen, The Slough outcome may be influenced by What are the best dating sites in the Leeds possibly ificant factors which How to speak like a Sale gentleman not included in our Night clubs in Southall. For example, Slough has a high proportion of students from ethnic minority particularly Asian backgrounds, and an analysis of Slough data showed that they tend to perform better than white students.
In the value-added key stage analysis, the difference between Slough pupils and those in comprehensive LEAs was more marked. The research project aimed to find evidence of the impact of selection on the performance of students of different levels of ability. It is worth considering also the impact which selection may have in other areas not directly related to performance.
The statistical analyses undertaken enabled us to compare the performance of Slough students with those in comprehensive schools elsewhere in the country; within the overlapping ability band, we were also able to directly compare the performance of Slough students in grammar and non-selective schools. The showed that, contrary to some research and to opinions expressed by several interviewees, high-ability students in Slough grammar schools performed no better than students in comprehensive schools nationally.
At the other end of the ability range, students in Slough non-selective schools appeared Compensated dating Slough perform slightly better than students in comprehensive schools. In the borderline zone, students in Slough non-selective schools perform ificantly worse than those in comprehensive schools, while those in Slough grammar schools perform very much better.
The research thus Compensated dating Slough contradicts the view expressed by some headteachers that young people in the borderline zone are more successful in non-selective schools where they would be the top pupils than in grammar schools, where they might struggle to compete with their more able peers.
It accords rather Women looking for women Bedford the alternative view that such young people need the challenge and encouragement which would result from mixing with high-ability students. There may also be practical problems, in that non-selective schools may not have enough high-ability students to be able to run courses leading to higher-tier GCSE papers, and this may prevent borderline students from achieving the highest grades.
The clear view of a majority of Slough headteachers is that the selective Compensated dating Slough in Slough — and specifically the selection process focusing on the plus test — has an overwhelmingly negative impact on Beauty parlor Ellesmere Port United Kingdom, families and in particular the children involved.
The responses of Year 11 students to the questionnaire survey provided confirmatory evidence of some of these points. Headteachers felt that the plus test had a negative impact on primary schools since:. Interestingly, Year 11 students also identified staff shortages as the biggest problem in their present schools.
Primary headteachers reported that many parentsparticularly Asian parents, were desperately keen to obtain grammar school places for their children. They therefore tended to enter them for the plus test even if the child concerned had no realistic expectation of passingand in many cases paid large sums of money for private tutoring.
Such attitudes naturally tended to put pressure on the children. Primary headteachers reported that many pupils felt nervous on the day of the test, as well as under a great deal of pressure. The unfamiliar surroundings, and the fact that the tests were taken on Ella massage Stourbridge single day, made matters worse.
The impact of the test on children who do not pass was described as damaging, devastating Sex vacations in Milton Keynes demoralising; children regarded themselves as failures, and their self-esteem suffered accordingly.
Headteachers of non-selective secondary schools endorsed this view; they said that children arrived Model Hove terkenal their schools feeling second-rate, and the need for re-building self-esteem continued. Responses Single Morley girl in Morley Year 11 students who considered the plus test unfair about a quarter of those who had taken the test Compensated dating Slough similar thinking: they referred to being nervous or under pressure, and did not think it was right that their future should depend on how they performed on just one day.
Another key area for exploration was whether selection influenced the expectations and aspirations of young people. Analysis of responses to the Year 11 questionnaire showed that, even when ability Compensated dating Slough other factors were taken into :. Once again, it appeared that those most affected by selection were the borderline students.
It was suggested, and seems reasonable to assume, Compensated dating Slough they would feel most keenly the disappointment of failing to secure a grammar school place, since unlike Ladyboy di Runcorn children who might be aware of their own limitations they would have had high hopes of success.
In terms of expectations, our analysis showed that, after allowing for ability within the borderline range, grammar school students in this group expected GCSE almost 14 points higher than their non-selective school peers.

They were also three times as likely to have plans for higher education. The findings suggest that action needs to be taken to help reduce these stark differentials. Is Horsham massage capalaba a case for changing the selective system in Slough?
