1 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department 1 Briefings for Governors National Curriculum 2014

2 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Aims  To build a curriculum vision for the Derbyshire family of schools  To brief governors on the new national curriculum’s aims and programmes of study  To support change management 2

3 ‘The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.’ p6 3

4 National Curriculum School Curriculum Outstanding teaching and learning

5 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Establishing the vision 5 Think about your current school curriculum. What would you not want to change because you know it contributes to strong learning and progress?

6 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Aims of the new curriculum ‘The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. It introduces pupils to the best that has been thought and said; and helps engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.’ 6

7 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Every state-funded school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:  promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and  prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. 7

9 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department What will be the same and what will be different? 9

10 Subsidiary guidance – Ofsted September 2013  ‘The majority of the national curriculum is being ‘disapplied (i.e. suspended) from September 2013 for one year in order to give schools the freedom to change what they teach in order to prepare for the new NC. …Whilst schools will still have to teach the NC subjects, what they teach will be up to them…Disapplication is a permissive measure – no school will be required to change what it teaches until September 2014’  Teachers will still have to teach the NC for English, maths and science to pupils in Y1,2,5 and 6 in 2013/14. This is to ensure they are sufficiently prepared for NC tests in KS1 and KS2 in summer

12 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Assessment 2014  There are some changes to assessment for children in Y2 and Y6 this year.  See Assessment Newsletter in pack 12

13 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Assessment  New KS1 and 2 tests start for Y2 and Y6 children in

14 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Assessment Proposals  national curriculum levels removed and not replaced  schools determine their own approach to formative assessment and progress tracking  end of KS2 SATS to be more demanding with an expectation that 85% pupils achieve and are considered “secondary ready.” 85% will be a floor standard  baseline to measure progress maybe from YR or from KS1 dependent on outcome of consultation 14

15 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department  a scaled score will be used to report and compare pupils attainment against the national cohort. Report to parents example: In the end of KS2 reading test Sally received a scaled score of 126 (the secondary ready standard is 100) placing her in the top 10% schools nationally. The average scaled score for pupils with the same prior attainment was 114, so she has made more progress in reading than pupils with a similar starting point. 15

16 Derbyshire County Council Children and Younger Adults Department Staying the Same Post 2016:  statutory duty to report annually to parents  end of Y6 writing to be teacher assessed  end of KS2 SATS (although no L6 tests)  national sampling of science  phonics screening check  use of statutory data  testing at the end of KS1 16
