Assessment is the bridge between teaching and learning and effective assessment ensures that children are appropriately supported and challenged.

The Wider Curriculum Assessment document measures the impact of curriculum implementation. By inputting children’s names, having assessed their ability both formatively and summatively against the relevant objectives, accurate assessment information can be collated quickly. This, in turn, informs planning, CPD and leadership priorities by analysing attainment and progress for all pupils and key groups.

In a culture of inspection and moderation, schools and school leaders need to be well-prepared to discuss the rationale behind their curriculum design. The External Moderation Readiness Guide allows leaders to continually assess and moderate the effectiveness of their curriculum intent, implementation and impact.
