Oh good. They must also be planning to remove the pressure on us to achieve 3 levels of progress based on spurious teacher assessments.
Not as good as I first thought - they are keeping an externally marked reading test, but relying on teacher assessment for writing.
Three levels!!! You mean you are meant to move a child on from 3a to 6a? I thought two whole levels was bad enough, which is what we are expected to set as targets.
Bin 3 levels for ages.
Makes it really hard when a child comes into Yr 7 with a TA level of 3b and can neither read nor write.
Reassuring to observe cross-phase respect and understanding in action.
That's a bit unnecessary. I am simply reporting the unvarnished truth. Nothing to do with cross-phase respect or lack of it. Whoever sent me that child with that level wasn't making my life any easier - or the child's.
