From September 2014, the Department for Education removed the system of ‘levels’ that schools used to report children’s attainment and progress. This was because the government decided that the system of levels would not fit the new primary National Curriculum, which sets out what is to be taught within each year group or phase, but does not provide any system or structure for assessing children’s progress.

Between the ends of Key Stages schools have had to decide how to assess children against the school’s curriculum. The aim of this Guide to Assessment without levels is to outline the assessment system that we are now using at Greenfields,  so that we can find out what children know and identify their next steps in learning.
