Assessment at St Mary of the Angels.

Thank you to all those parents who attended our 'Assessment in St Mary of the Angels' afternoon (or evening) sessions, in autumn 2016. We were pleased with your feedback and hope you enjoyed it - despite the topic being complicated for beginners!

If you need further information (or perhaps you weren't able to come), then we have provided some resources here, which we hope may help you.

The first attachment is a PDF copy of the powerpoint presentation, which provided the basic for our discussions. Sometimes, reading things again can help us to understand the content more deeply, and we hope that this may help.

The second resource here is a letter for parents, which explains  our new whole school assessment system, 'Depth of Learning'. It mentions the 'Essentials' curriculum - we don't use that, as we have our own bespoke curriculum. But the rest of the letter is a really useful summary about how 'Depth of Learning' works.

If you want to know why NATIONAL CURRICULUM LEVELS have been removed by the government, there is a link here to a really useful explanation on Youtube, by assessment 'expert' Tim Oates. It's a bit 'dry' to watch, but the content is really important - watch the first 6 minutes for all you need to know....Copy and paste this link into your browser ....                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q5vrBXFpm0

FINALLY, IF YOU NEED ANY MORE INFORMATION, POP IN AND SEE US....WE'RE HERE FOR YOU!
