This one day course is aimed at headteachers, senior leaders, teachers and KS1 practitioners. The course is practical and skills based. The course helps participants to understand the principles of evaluating outcomes at Key Stage 1. Participants learn how to make judgements about attainment, progress and achievement, and how to apply the methodology of progress tracking. Participants will learn how to use the EYFSP as a measure of prior attainment and how to calculate threshold proportions and use average point scores. During the day, participants will gain skills in measuring and evaluating individual and group progress and in collating and analysing data to identify strengths and weaknesses and aspects for improvement.

Method of Tuition: 

The course is a mix of direct tuition and skill-based learning involving tasks and workshops.
