From autumn 2 we will have the end of keystage statements on an electronic tracking programme, which we use for all other levelled subjects. there will simply be the option to mark if the child owns that skill. Im asking all staff to go through the statements and tick off the ones they think the children own.
This should, once up and running, provide a clear assessment of each childs needs every time a unit is covered.
My only issue here is will other staff take it seriously and really think about their children and will they mark it carefully enough to build the whole picture of each child?
We shall see. At least it is a start to tracking the learning in the school and the childrens abilities.
So, it seems our electronic tracking system won't support non number based entries and cells are described using abbreviations. This makes adding end of key stage statements impossible and unless we use a number based entry we can't record that the skill is owned by the child.
So back to the drawing board. I'm looking at paper based (groan, what if its lost, ripped or misfilled in) end of key stage statements at the top, class lust at the side and mark if the child owns the skill. Then pass to next teacher to inform teaching year by year.
