1 Assessment at Trinity St Stephen First School October 2014

2 The new curriculum In September the new National Curriculum became statutory There is greater challenge, particularly in maths A greater focus on core knowledge and learning facts Foundation subjects do not have the same level of detail in the new curriculum, allowing teachers to be more creative with their teaching

3 Assessment English, maths and science SATs will remain, but will be more demanding Children will be ranked against the national cohort by decile. (A decile rank is a comparative rank where something is measured against other similar things. The child would be given a score between 1 and 10, where a score of 1 would mean they were in the top 10%, a score of 2 would mean they were in the top 20%) There is a proposed baseline test for Foundation children on entry into Reception

4 Assessment National Curriculum levels will be removed and not replaced. Year 2 and the Foundation year will continue to work with the old curriculum and assessment procedures this year It will be up to schools to decide how they measure progress and attainment Schools will be expected to achieve targets of at least 85% of pupils attaining the expected attainment for each year group
