    We have been using Chris Quigley for 2 years now and I have a number of new staff who need supporting with clear WAGOLLs of expectations of the different year groups in Writing and Reading. I know there is the bullet pointed national standard expectation sheets but I want to give some intensive CPD to some staff and want to show some examples. Can anyone help?
    Also, what latest assessments do people use - would you recommend NFER? I want the assessments to identify if, from that test, they are on track for expected and back up teacher assessments...
    Thanks in advance...

    IMO standardised tests are really only helpful for providing a measure of progress. They rarely match what has been taught/learnt so don't help with backing up teacher assessments necessarily. Sometimes they can help with identifying misconceptions or gaps.
    I would suggest talking to groups of children across the school using tasks/questions matched to key ideas/understandings which will reveal thinking. The results of these conversations can be cross-referenced with evidence teachers should be collecting.

    I don't rate NFER, for maths at least, we found they brought the children out very low

    Rising stars SPAG is ok, but reading and maths again we find bring the children out low.

    White rose Hub have free maths assessments which look good, but probably work best alongside teaching from their LTP.

    We've been advised to use a site called literacy WAGOLL - google it - its got example tests you can use for modelled writing etc, bot sure if this what you mean?

    I coordinate English. From time to time, I just pinch a decent book from each year group, photocopy one or two pieces of work out of each and stick them in the coordinator file with a note on that says 'Typical Y4' or suchlike. Tell the staff where the file is. Leave them to it. If they find it helpful they know where it is.
