As part of the government's reforms to the National Curriculum, the current system of ‘levels’ used to report children’s attainment and progress has been removed from September 2014 and will not be replaced. The removal of levels has allowed us greater flexibility in the way that we plan and assess pupils’ learning.
The programmes of study within the new National Curriculum (NC) set out expectations at the end of each key stage, and we have developed a curriculum relevant to our pupils that teaches this content. The curriculum includes an assessment system which enables us to check what our pupils have learned and whether they are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage. We will report this to parents throughout the year.
Key changes to national curriculum tests and assessments:
The National Curriculum tests (SATs) and teacher assessment at the end of key stages 1 (Year 2) will be reported in levels for the last time in summer 2015, as pupils in Year 2 that year will not have been taught the new National Curriculum.
The first new key stage 1 tests in English, mathematics and science, based on the new National Curriculum, will be sat by pupils for the first time in the summer of 2016.
