WORCESTERSHIRE PLANS PUPIL DATABASE

Worcestershire CC is proposing to set up a database to store the performance and progress of every pupil in the county, reported the Worcester Evening News.

The county's director of education, Julien Kramer, said: 'This will move the authority to the forefront of well-organised education authorities in the county,'

He added: 'We have been working with teachers to raise standards. We have been tracking the performance of 2,000 children over the past four years and we are the only authority to do that. Teachers find our database more accurate than the government's at the moment.'

A council report on the proposal says the database could monitor the performance of all pupils in national curriculum tests and major public examinations and will allow targets to be set for individual schools.

It says: 'Comparing schools by the progress which their pupils make is much more reliable than making comparisons on the basis of a single set of examination results.'
