The problem with and solution to recording progress in your school. 

Problem

"Our curriculum is onerous on teachers. Recording progress is becoming a 'tick-box' exercise and losing meaning."

Solution

Adapt your curriculum objectives and expectations to ensure your teachers are assessing against what's actually being taught in the classroom. By customising your curriculum you can also ensure that recording progress for pupils doesn't become a 'tickbox' exercise and has real meaning.

Top Tip!

Don't forget the importance of engaging your pupils in their learning by showing them what they've achieved, what's coming next, and how to get there!

"Schools should be free to develop an approach to assessment which aligns with their curriculum and works for their pupils and staff.” 

Final Report of the Commission on Assessment without Levels, September 2015, Page 10
