Assessment procedures at Plymtree, as part of the Culm Valley federation

The Department For Education (DFE) has made the biggest change to education in 20 years.

Last year was the transition year.

‘By removing levels we will allow greater flexibility in the way that teachers plan and assess
pupils learning.’

‘The curriculum must include an assessment system which enables schools to check what pupils have learnt and whether they are on track to meet expectations at the end of the key stage, and to report to parents regularly.’
DFE 2014

Our current year 3 children were the first children to have progress measured using the new Key Stage 1 assessments in 2016 then in 2020 using Key Stage 2 assessments.
