Deputy Headteacher, Shaun Allison, at Durrington High School, talks here about how staff used an ‘Assessment Innovation Fund’ to develop a method of ‘assessing without levels’ in KS3.

The Government’s expert adviser on behaviour, Charlie Taylor, has produced a checklist on the basics of classroom management. Teachers can use it to develop between five and ten essential actions to promote good behaviour in students.
The checklist follows Charlie's recent summit, where headteachers of outstanding schools discussed their views on the key principles for improving behaviour.
You can download Charlie’s checklist and examples of how some schools have adapted it for their own practice here.
We wanted to take control and devise an assessment tool that enabled us to report progress in a meaningful way. We were also very clear that whatever assessment tool we devised, it needed to be robust and track pupils’ progress across the school and not just at the end of a Key Stage.
A sheet crammed with tips for engaging students who struggle, either due to SpLD or purely find listening and following difficult. This can be used as a checklist for your teaching, regardless of the subject.
This bundle contains 6 sets of resources to organise your classroom.
It also includes ready-made flashcards - for whole-class teaching.
- Cardinal numbers
- Ordinal numbers
- 2D/3D Shapes displays
- Subject displays/Labels for objects around the classroom
- Alphabet frieze displays
And much much more.
