We catch up on recent developments and think through the implications for planning in schools
1. Update: Update on government policy on assessment and accountability including developments in the baseline test and the revision of the EYFSP.
2. Implementing pre-standard: The DfE’s publication of a radically new version of pre-NC standards for pupils working below NC levels, for September has reignited the issue of how we meet the needs of children working well below their peers, if we are to maintain inclusive standards. This item follows on from last session’s briefing to address the more general (and not new) issue of how we cope with children who are very significantly behind their year.
3. Inside this year’s results: How did we do this year? What lessons can be drawn from emergent patterns?
4. End-of-Year 4 assessment: Half way through the longest key stage, Year 4 is a critical time to look back and check what pupils can do. This session offers :
• a free set of conventional test papers in Reading, Writing and Maths
• a Pupil Passport for foundation subjects in Y4 (a companion to the Y2 version offered in the last course).
5. Monitoring a cultural entitlement: An increasing number of schools are offering all children a cultural entitlement to experiences they consider life-enhancing for children. These range from a visit to a theatre or an art gallery to swimming in open water, visiting the seaside and riding a horse. I share some ideas and a great example.
6. Assessment unit for use with NQTs: A 30 minute training session for use with NQTs
• to establish the principles of assessment
• to secure their understanding of formative, periodic and summative assessment
• to identify ways in which teachers should respond to assessments made
7. The assessment of thinking and learning skills across the curriculum: Once the assessment of subjects is established, schools will want to consider how we monitor learning in the round. In this session, we look at cross-cutting assessments that map pupil learning across the curriculum. You leave with a full set of 8 ladders (by year) of assessment criteria
