Assessment - Governor's Meeting 9-5-16
Transcript of Assessment - Governor's Meeting 9-5-16
Joint Governors' Meeting
What it Looks Like
The Impact on the Children
In the past, KS1 & 2 children were assessed using levels.
Levels have been abolished in favour of 'age-related expectations' (ARE).
Expectations have risen significantly.
Clarity (!) for parents.
A focus on depth of learning and developing a full understanding before moving onto 'higher levels'.
'Mastery' of skills.
"Levels have also been recognised as the driver of undue pace through the curriculum, which has led to gaps in pupils’ knowledge."
What this Looks Like
Children working towards ARE at the end of the year continue on the previous year's curriculum to develop a real understanding before moving on.
Children exceeding expectations are offered more cross-curricular opportunities to apply and deepen their understanding before moving onto the next year's curriculum.

What this Looks Like
Rather than saying a child can or can't use adjectives, we now look at their developing understanding of how to use them.
I can use simple adjectives in my writing after input.
I use adjectives independently in my writing.
I can explain what adjectives are. I choose and use them carefully for effect. I am the undisputed Queen of the Adjective and I'm definitely ready to move onto noun phrases!
The adjective is an unexplored mystery to me!

The 'Click System'
A 5-point scale to measure progress through the year and across the school.
To make expected progress, children need to complete the year at the equivalent point to the previous year.
The 5-point scale allows for accelerated progress within the year.
The Impact on Children
Schools have always tracked progress and attainment using age-related expectations. (E.g. Year 1 = 1a, Year 2 = 2b, etc.)
The focus on increased depth promotes more rounded and detailed understanding.
(An interim Curriculum was introduced...
Ensuring a fuller understanding of concepts before moving on should lead to fewer gaps in learning.
It's easier to track group progress and analyse group trends.
Continued cross-school training and moderation is essential.
Parents need to be kept informed. (Especially in Y1 and SATs years.)
Schools need to be ready for the next surprise!
Pupil Progress Meetings (PPMs)
Termly meetings are held to:
focus on group-level data to pinpoint future actions and targets.
review individual data where children have plateaued or aren’t making expected progress.
SLT to continue to review Raise Online and FFT data to pinpoint areas for school development and feedback to staff and governors.
Teachers to have ownership and understanding of class data and progress expectations.
Thanks for listening!
