1 The New National Curriculum 2014 What will change?

2 Subject Programmes of Study and Attainment targets Each subject contains Purpose of study Aims Subject domains (e.g. Reading Statutory Programmes of Study (POS) + non statutory exemplar/notes and guidance POS are described as Matters, Skills and Processes

3 Core and Foundation Yrs 1-6 English Maths Science Art and Design Computing Design and Technology Geography History Music Pe Languages KS2

4 Other areas PSHE All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education drawing on good practice RE as per SACRE Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics in their choice of planning and designing their own programme of education

5 Changes More challenge in Mathematics (Calculators end of KS2) Calculation policies Greater emphasis in Science A new subject Computing An emphasis on British History Changes to years or Key Stages where some topics have previously been taught

6 The new assessment procedure In September 2014 the new National Curriculum became compulsory for all children in Years 1 – 6, in all subjects with the exception of Year 2 and Year 6 in English, Maths and Science. Year 2 and Year 6 will be using LEVELS in English, Maths and Science for this academic year ONLY!

7 What the government says “… schools should then be free to design their approaches to assessment to support pupil attainment and progression. The assessment framework must be built into the curriculum, so that schools can check what pupils have learned and whether they are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage, and so that they can report regularly to parents.” Source: Reform of the national curriculum in England Government response to the consultation conducted February – April 2013 (July 2013)

8 Types of assessment Assessment for Learning – AfL assessment is on- going and used to check students’ learning. AfL is happening constantly in a classroom. The information is used to amend planning, support pupils etc. SUMMATIVE - The goal is to evaluate student attainment by comparing it against some sort of standard or benchmark. This is the area we are changing

9 The new assessment procedure Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (Nursery and Reception) remains the same. Assessment procedures in EYFS are the same for this academic year. The Government plans to introduce a baseline test for all reception pupils next year. The results from the test will be used to predict outcomes for each child at the end of Year 6.

10 The new assessment procedure We use a system called Pupil Asset to track pupils progress. This allows us to track children’s progress both as individuals, compared to the rest of the class/ year group and against national expectations. We are continuing to use national curriculum levels and running the new criteria alongside. Children’s progress in the summer term reports will be provided in the new format

11 What does Pupil Asset plan to provide? A system which will move between Levels in years 2 and 6 and Age Band Assessments in years 1, 3, 4 and 5 The New Curriculum framework itself to support and enable teaching and assessment A linear progress model which will cover all stages and incorporate Development Matters, the Early Learning Goals and current p-Scales Predictions of attainment at any standardised test points (we anticipate that this will happen at the end of each Key Stage as a minimum but this isn’t known for sure at this time) Support for assessment in Levels for schools who wish to take this route whilst still highlighting assessment in terms of likely performance at standardised test points This is not yet possible to do accurately as the criteria which will determine the standardised scores haven’t yet been released

12 English - Reading 1. Word reading Phonics remains at the heart of early reading. 2. Comprehension (both listening and reading) There is a greater emphasis on comprehension, with more continuity between the year groups and an emphasis on working on increasingly challenging texts. 3. Reading for pleasure Encouraging a love of reading is at the core of the new English Programme of Study with a greater emphasis on reading non-fiction (now required at Year 1) as well as fiction: 4. Making rapid progress The new curriculum emphasises the need for children who may be struggling to learn to decode rapidly.

13 Drama and the English curriculum: Role play and drama are referred to across the curriculum as part of spoken language. There will also be a statutory requirement to prepare poems and play scripts to read aloud and to perform, showing understanding through intonation, tone, volume and action.

14 English – KS1  Only phonic reading strategies required  No specific mention of group work or drama strategies  References to ICT/typing removed  Learning of poetry (including reciting poetry) introduced  Specific spellings, e.g. days of the week  Joined writing expected in Year 2  Proof-reading of own writing KS2 >

15 English – KS2  Phonic decoding expected to be secure by Y3  No specific mention of group work, drama strategies or use of ICT  Learning of classic & modern poetry (including reciting poetry) introduced  Specific spelling rules to be taught  Précising and dictation  Greatly increased expectations in grammar and punctuation (detailed appendices)
