Using the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum as a starting point, we have identified progress milestones across the key stages for the non-core subjects. Teachers use these as a working document that supports their planning through the year and enables them to make teacher judgements about children who have met, not met or exceeded the expected standard for each year group. Where appropriate, children may be made aware of a specific milestone they are working towards.
Progress milestones are identified at the planning stage. Teachers note progress towards these milestones. Leaders use the progress milestones when looking at books, talking to children or observing lessons. Each July when the curriculum is reviewed, the curriculum leader takes a snap shot of the attainment across all subjects and identifies strengths and areas for development. This information then informs the curriculum for the coming year.

Assessment of core subjects English, Maths and Science are continuously tracked using our internal tracking system target tracker. Progress and attainment are monitored termly for these subjects. Where appropriate, children are given specific targets to support their progress and teachers regularly feedback to children through the use of our marking policy. This information builds up a detailed picture for each child which enables effective planning, differentiation and specific interventions throughout the year. This process ensures that pupils’ learning is moving forwards and the teaching is tailored to their needs.
