The removal of national curriculum levels has led to some uncertainty about how schools and Departments can be confident in tracking pupil progress; assessing pupil performance in a way which is both rigorous and accurate, and using assessment as an effective planning and teaching tool.

 Designed to fill the gap created by the removal of National Curriculum Levels,

The Lancashire Assessment Programme offers schools an assessment model that provides:

  • an asessment programme from Key Stage 3 to GCSE
  • objective led assessment criteria in line with GCSE from 2015
  • a progression ladder from Year 7 to 11 which supports teachers' planning and AfL
  • advice on how to administer assessments
  • in-house moderation approaches
  • standardising opportunities to support quality control across schools

Trialled throughout Lancashire schools before its launch, this programme offers the structure and rigour required of schools to track pupils' progress and plot progression in line with expectations at GCSE.

  • The programme is now embedded in schools across Lancashire and beyond. Schools wishing to adopt the programme can arrange bespoke training by contacting alison.kenyon@lancashire.gov.uk
