Effective Foundation Subject Assessment (Primary)
Weare hoping to run this Hot Topic again in the 2017-18 academic year. Please let us know if you would like to attend by selecting the Express Interest button below.
Ofsted inspectors have now been briefed to broaden their monitoring of the curriculum to ensure that schools are truly providing a broad and balanced curriculum and assessing foundation subjects effectively. This course is designed to ensure that schools and subject leaders in all subjects are fully prepared for when Ofsted visit. It covers how to assess against Age Related Expectations in foundations subjects, how to report the data to subject leaders, how to collate the data and then analyse this in order to provide meaningful data across the curriculum.
Who is this programme for?
Primary Foundation Subject Leaders, Senior Leaders, Classroom teachers and anyone with a keen interest in developing their understanding of assessment across the curriculum.
Delegates will increase their knowledge, skills and understanding of the definitions of how to manage assessment in foundation subjects. They will also gain an understanding of how analysis of data can provide a meaningful picture of standards for their subject across the whole school
The following will be explored during the session:
- Weekly short term assessment in foundation subjects
- Termly assessments in foundation subjects
- Analysis of termly data
- Asking questions about data in order to determine future actions
What to bring along to the course
Please bring examples of current weekly plans for foundation subjects along with any assessment materials and analysis that your school currently use.
