The New National Curriculum

 

As from September 2015, all year groups at Northwood Park follow the new National Curriculum. Details of which can be found on the Direct Gov Website

 

At Northwood Park Primary School, we actively promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect, tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs, within our curriculum and also through our daily interactions with the children. Our school undertakes daily assemblies which uphold traditional values of empathy, respect and tolerance. These are also taught within formal PSHE and RE lessons.

 

Assessing without Levels

 

Last academic year, schools were required to make changes to the way in which pupils were assessed (previously, pupils were assessed using levels).

 

At Northwood Park, we have decided to adopt an approach that uses banding rather than levels. Pupils will be assessed against the new National Curriculum objectives and a decision will be made at certain points throughout the year as to whether they are beginning, developing or secure against year group expectations.

 

We will continue to report pupil attainment and progress through the normal means at Parent's Evenings, on written reports and in informal meetings throughout the year, but the terminology used to assess and report will differ, as explained above. 

 

There have also been changes made to the way pupils will be assessed as from September 2014.

 

All year groups will be assessed without the use of levels. At Northwood Park, we have decided to adopt an approach that uses banding rather than levels. Pupils will be assessed against the new National Curriculum objectives and a decision will be made at certain points throughout the year as to whether they are emerging, developing or secure against year group expectations.

 

School will still report pupil attainment and progress through the normal means at Parent's Evenings, on written reports and in informal meetings throughout the year, but the terminology used for pupils in these year groups will change, as explained above.
