Hi everyone. A teacher for 19 years. I have a lot of experience as a literacy co-coordinator and have developed resources in this area in the past which i am hoping to share with you More recently I have become a member of the SLT so am now branching out into several new areas such as EAL, Pupil Premium, monitoring etc so hope to share any resources that i make on this current journey in the hope of saving others time when they are looking for something similar for their own practice.

EAL steps target cards

EAL steps target cards

These target cards are designed for use along side the NASSEA step system (1-7) Each target card covers a range of English areas (speaking, listening and understanding, reading and writing) The idea is that, after initial assessment to find out which step the child is currently on, they can be given the next step up to aim for. It guides the child, staff and parents in knowing what they next need to do in order to progress.
Pre test Interim assessment framework tick sheets for KS1 and KS2

Pre test Interim assessment framework tick sheets for KS1 and KS2

For this year's SATS tests, the teacher assessments for both years 2 and 6 need to be done using the government produced interim assessment framework. If children are working below the level of the test (but are not SEND) their assessments will be done using the pre key stage interim assessments. In this resource, I have taken the statements from each of the Key stages and made them into a table, enabling teachers to record whether or not the children meet the standards on them. The form can be used to simply tick. Or teachers could use it to put dates on and reference where the evidence for this statement can be found. I did this as there seem to be plenty of tables for the interim assessments but not for the pre test statements. I hope you find it useful

This is intended to be used by Senior Leaders. I used this form to track professional development and support given to staff across the year. It is a good way to condense all the info from learning walks/ book scrutinise and any other monitoring and see it altogether on 1 form.

This template is for Senior leaders It is a simple excel document which you can use to track teaching over time (using inadequate/ requires improvement/ good/ outstanding - or adapt with own words). I used it to amalgamate judgements over all areas to get a broad idea of where a teacher was overall and then to track progress.

After sitting down with my year 6 team to use the interim assessment framework to assess the children's writing, we discovered 2 things. 1) It was going to be a lot of work 2) Some of the statements were a little vague and we had to keep referencing the national curriculum to check - which took more time So, I made this 'crib' sheet, which hopefully makes the writing statements a little clearer and all on 1 sheet (per level) so staff do not have to keep looking forwards and backwards between 2 documents. hopefully you will find it useful too!

Behaviour log

A simple table to record behaviour incidents for your class/ school We used it to track behaviour in our phases for the children that were sent to us (SLT) and the BeCo would review it weekly to find patterns and deal with any recurrent problems A fresh one would be used every half term
