Intent, Implementation and Impact of your curriculum! These documents will support subject leaders and senior leaders in reflecting on the provision for the different subjects within your school curriculum and how these meet the specific needs of your children. This reflects the emphasis on the whole curriculum in the Ofsted inspection framework from September 2019. The aim of the Examining Teaching and Learning in… documents is to provide subject leaders with a precise evaluation of the provision for their subject. Once conducted, the information can then be used as a basis for: the subject improvement plan; a discussion during an Ofsted inspection; a position statement report to the governing body; and general discussions about the subject with senior leaders and teachers in school. The questions and prompts within the resources have been carefully designed to ensure consistency in a school’s approach to evaluation by the subject leader whilst also focusing on the individual characteristics of each subject area. They can be independently used by schools or be provided as part of a subject specific ‘Health Check’ provided by one of the Lancashire Teaching and Learning Consultants.

Reading - Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs)

(0)
The KLIPs, or Key Learning Indicators of Performance, have been developed from Lancashire’s National Curriculum Support Materials, which detail the key learning in reading and writing for each year group. These key learning grids for each year group can be used to provide: Detailed assessment information for the teacher to use to inform their future planning of next steps (formative). Overall judgements which can be made more summatively (for example once a term), to enable senior leadership teams to track progress across the school, during the year. This will assist schools with self-evaluation and in informing discussions with others e.g. inspection teams, about attainment and progress. A means of informing parents about attainment and progress. The underlined statements on the grids have been identified as Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) as these have the greatest impact on the further development of skills and subsequent learning. Consequently, the Key Learning Indicators of Performance (KLIPs) play a particularly significant role in the assessment process.

Meeting the Needs of the Most Able: Guidance for Primary and Secondary Schools

(0)
These new guidelines for primary and secondary schools offer practical advice and resources in meeting the needs of the most able. They are intended to support schools in examining what is already in place for these learners and in developing a thorough whole school approach based on a shared understanding of what meeting their needs requires. For Senior Leaders the guidelines support schools in a review of systems and structures including identification in all subjects, an audit of current provision, tracking progress and how to include the school’s support for the most able in the school’s self-evaluation. For those with a lead role in meeting the needs of the most able the guidelines include advice on starting points, approaches to teaching and learning and addressing key issues like transition and underachievement. For primary schools, classroom ideas in all subjects are also included. All of the grids included in the guidelines are provided as templates for schools to adapt for their own use.

Mathematics Assessment Tests - Key Stage 1 - Autumn Term

Mathematics Assessment Tests - Key Stage 1 - Autumn Term

(0)
The tests are designed to resemble the national end of key stage tests in both appearance, structure and question design and have been written by consultants involved in development of the national tests. They will therefore support children in becoming familiar with the end of Key Stage tests. The Lancashire Mathematics Assessment Tests are designed to support teachers in confirming their teacher assessments at the end of each term. They complement the Lancashire Mathematics Planning Support Disc which revisits curriculum content on a termly basis, which has been identified through research by Ofsted as the most effective approach to learning. They also complement the Mathematics Learning and Progression Steps (LAPS), which provide approximate end of term expectations, and the Lancashire KLIPs Assessment system. They can, however, be used alongside any other assessment systems. The end of Autumn term tests assess only the content of the mathematics curriculum that has been covered within the Planning Support Disc for that term. The questions are also pitched against a realistic expectation of what children should have achieved up to that point in time, which corresponds to the first parts within the Learning and Progression Steps. This ensures the assessments for the end of Autumn and Spring terms are not against end of year expectations. This means that the tests will only measure whether a child is either on track to achieve the end of year expectations or whether they are not. The Lancashire Mathematics Team will not produce a marking threshold to indicate attainment as the tests are intended to be used to support the teacher’s professional judgement of the children’s abilities.
