Refining Assessment Policy and Practice to Support Teaching and Learning led by Stephen Anwyll
Two years after their first implementation, this session will explore the implications of the assessment arrangements and accountability measures under the revised National Curriculum. It will consider how schools are adapting to a shift in focus from attainment onto pupil progress throughout the primary phase. It will look at the impact of the new accountability measures for schools serving different kinds of communities and consider the outcomes of the Government’s national consultation on primary assessment. There will be an opportunity to reflect on how the new test and teacher assessment arrangements are affecting school practice, how school data is being presented following the end of RAISEonline and how Ofsted has responded to the new assessment landscape.
