If required you can add/remove columns on the top right of the screen to further inform your Target setting decisions, for example you may want to add SEN or FSM as columns to see which Students are SEN and/or FSM

Click Close

Add or Remove columns

When you are happy with your choices click Run.

Now you will see the Students with any additional columns you have selected.

For example for a Student who is FSM or SEN you may want their Target to be less than their ARE


Click Fill Empty Targets and this will populate the Target columns with the ARE (Age Related Expectations) then you can click on each Student and amend the Target if required.

You will then get a Confirmation pop up.

Click Proceed if you are happy with the Targets

Then to amend to Targets simply click in the column and choose the required Target with the option to Expand the Gradeset if you are selecting a Target below the Year Group of the selected Student in the example a Student is working below or above their Year Group
