APPs - are they here to stay or are we going to get rid?

Discussion in 'Assessment' started by soapboxgirl, Jul 10, 2011.

  1. Does anyone have any idea if gov't plan to keep them? Need to plan for primary assessments next year.

    APP is non-statutory and the QCDA who were the driving force behind it is being abolished (the APP team was disbanded some time ago). No-one is going to say you can't use it if you want to.
  3. For the last 2 or 3 years whilst this was being rolled out and heavily plugged by our lea, we studiously employed avoidance tactics whenever meetings were arranged or where the latest twaddle, the self - support groups got together, where we can 'share good practice' and 'network'. It was clear to many of us old uns that this drivel was untested, untrialled pointless, confused, messy admin-speak and was about as useful as levels, and would crumble away as time passed, like dog poo in the rain.

    And so it has proven. I am very pleased at the hundreds of hours we saved by not embracing this wet dream of an idea and proud at the leadership shown in insisting my department concentrate on teaching children not creating yet another admin system.
