PSHE... how do you assess in this subject?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by blackpurse, May 30, 2011.

  1. I am in the process of putting a subject leader file together. One of the sections is all about assessment.
    At the present time, we don't assess in PSHE. What do you do in your school?

    This:
     
  4. Another b* subject to assess. I suppose you could have a tick box for every lesson of achievers, under and over achievers. This would then be passed to the next teacher who would totally ignore it.
    Sorry for being so rude.
     
  5. Because I'm sure all secondary teachers take great note of assessments in numeracy, literacy and science.

     
  6. I agree. I vaguely remember, a post on here talking about how they assess PSHE.

    We have daily PSHE assessment time, usually no less than 45 minutes. We get the children to fill out self-assessment sheets that are split into sub-levels (until sub-sub-level sheets come out that is). We then get our TAs to enter this data onto a specially designed PSHE assessment spreadsheet and each week we dedicate half of our PPA time to making sure children have made progress from the previous input. If they haven't made at least one sub-level progress every half term then the children are put into extra PSHE 'booster' sessions during English lessons.

    I personally don't think we are doing enough at the moment.

    It really is the only way to go. I don't understand how other schools can pass Ofsted without this system.

    Milgod, you have a calling as PSHE AST for your LEA. Will you do us a twilight INSET on your inspiring developments into sub-sub-levelling??
    Although I'm not sure even sub-sub-levelling is enough. I'd like something that goes even deeper. Sub-sub-sub-levelling? Would be good in identifying the gaps with those ever troublesome 3aa/3ab students.
