New National Curriculum and Assessment
Professional Learning Communities were set up with subject expertise drawn from across the primary phases to develop carefully mapped out clear progressions for mathematics, English and ICT in the new curriculum to provide clarity for subject leaders and teachers. These have been piloted and used to lead planning from Year 1- 6 and been shared on our programmes for Initial Teacher Training and NQTs.
We have developed a clear breakdown of the coverage of new curriculum showing progression between year groups and the aspect of the mathematics curriculum. The mapping of the previous curriculum coverage alongside the new curriculum makes clear the changes necessary for planning and assessment for teachers. It is a useful tool for assessing pupil progress towards mastery of the new curriculum whilst showing teachers detailed steps before and after the objectives for their year group to allow work to be adjusted to secure or extend the key learning in each aspect of mathematics curriculum.

Reading and Writing Continuum Maps developed to show the whole curriculum at a glance progression. The objectives are set alongside for each aspect to allow teachers greater awareness of year groups above and below their own to ensure clarity of the progression and expectations within Word Reading, Comprehension and Writing, Spelling, Grammar and Terminology.
A series of diagnostic spelling assessments for Y3-5 which allow teachers to gauge which of the year group’s spelling rules are secure and which might require further work. Although not exhaustive, examples of words from each of the patterns set out for the year groups are included and provided in a suitable context.
A progression matrix showing a model used to ensure deep coverage of all aspects of the new curriculum. This assessment guide to all aspects of ICT makes explicit the progression in expectation across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Articulating precisely what it is that children should be able to do as an year by year expectation makes this a useful tool for mapping both progress and attainment.
