P levels broken down to match NEW curriculum

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by 01haread, Jul 5, 2015.

  1. Hi,

    I wondered if anyone could help? I am started a new role as an SEN teacher in a base at a main stream school. I am looking for the p levels broken down linked to the new curriculum as a basis for planning and future assessment. I have searched for ages and found nothing broken down apart from the old curriculum?

    If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be really grateful.

    Hello Hayley

    sadly you'll be looking for a long time. There is not anything.

    I assume you've found the old P levels, which were not deleted by the government when they removed the NC levels. I do not know if this was a decision they made, or if perhaps they did not notice that there were there.

    If you're not finding the old P levels helpful it may be worth exploring some of the other assessment methods, for example Routes for Learning is often highly praised and certainly worth a google.

    Kind regards

    Jo Grace

    I heard on a course a couple of weeks ago that new P levels are going to be issued very soon but not sure when.

    Hi, just for info, the P scales were kept and republished in July 2014

    in a downloadable document of statutory guidance detailed - "This document supplements the national curriculum by specifying performance attainment targets (P scales) and performance descriptors for pupils aged 5 to 16 with special educational needs (SEN) who cannot access the national curriculum."


    However, as Jo says, there isn't any other official breakdown or anything linking it to the national curriculum, although I think some schools have done their own.
