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.
