Schools have the option to report progress through either goals or Overall Teacher Judgements (OTJs). These levels are collated at set times throughout the year (milestones) and are recorded against expectations personalised by the school.
This article explains how you can view a snapshot of the current milestones/expectations data in a curriculum area for a class or group of students, and how you can see progress over time.
