Assessing Without Levels

In September 2014 all maintained schools introduced the new National Curriculum. At the same time schools were instructed to develop their own systems for assessing pupils’ progress and achievement as a national structure for assessment would no longer be in place from this point.

Pupils in Years 1-6 are now being assessed against age related expectations (ARE) which are statements describing what they should be able to do by the end of each year. We have taken the model of assessment which we already use in our Reception Class and applied that across the school so that we can judge whether children are at one of three stages in their learning: emerging, expected or exceeding (working towards, working at and working at greater depth).

We assess pupils in all subjects at the end of each term, although in reality, we are assessing children every day as they attempt and complete their work in class.

Pupils will be assigned a number against each strand of the age related expectations, which equates to their level of proficiency:

1: Working towards the expected standard / emerging

2: Working at the expected standard / expected

3: Working at greater depth / exceeding
