Assessment for primary school children is in the process of radical change. The fact sheet on the right issued by the DfE details the changes to the national curriculum and the assessment reforms that have followed.
At Virginia Primary School, we have been teaching the new national curriculum since its introduction in September 2014. Over the last term, we have been exploring, with the local authority and partnership schools, how we will assess and track progress in the absence of national curriculum levels. We have updated our School Improvement Plan to reflect this new focus for the autumn term 2015. Please see the plan under the section 'Our School'.
UPDATE NOVEMBER 2015: I have reported to the standards committee on our current assessment arrangements and plans for further development. Please see assessment document under policies for further details.
