Course details:  

The aims of the course are to help to inform teachers at KS2 what and how to plan for and assess pupil progress in the national curriculum for mathematics. The course will focus on the three aims of the mastery curriculum; mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving and how these headings will inform the formative assessment of every aspect of the curriculum.

This hands-on course will consider the freedom of schools to apply their own assessment criteria to school documents as well as looking at the purposes and uses of assessment to the class teacher. This will include looking at accessible ways to record pupil progress throughout the year.

Participants will  gain formative assessment ideas for use within their own schools and will have considered how summative assessment can be designed to support ongoing formative assessment.

Method of Tuition:
