Guide to Secondary Assessment

Assessment features prominently among the many changes to secondary education implemented since September 2016. 

Key Stage 4

Most secondary schools have prioritised their focus on ensuring that teachers and resources are in place to support their students in meeting the stringent new standards in GCSEs.  The ‘Gold Standard’ of 5 A*-Cs (including English and Maths) has been replaced as the ‘floor target’ by a new measure called ‘Progress 8’, which is reported along with a raft of other school success measures.

Key Stage 3

Levels are no longer compulsory for reporting Key Stage 3 (KS3) progress.  Secondary schools have had the opportunity to develop their own ‘rigorous’ assessment structures for KS3.  However, in many schools the priority in KS3 has been focused on updating their planning and resources to meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum.   As such, some schools are still developing their KS3 assessment practices. 

This course explains the new KS4 assessment practices and a range of current approaches to KS3 assessment.  It also includes guidance on how to use assessment productively in the secondary context, helping you stand out so that you can build great working relationships with the schools you are placed in.

Cover Supervisor training (CS); a one day course to introduce / refresh key skills and raise awareness of the required qualities and latest standards / expectations for practicing Cover Supervisors.  This course has been specifically designed for teachers returning to teaching after a prolonged absence or moving from a permanent / overseas position into supply teaching in England and Wales.  It will also help professionals from other trades interested in teaching to secure the requirements to allow them to work as day to day cover supervisors (with successful completion an agreed period of assessed classroom experience gained on a voluntary basis). The course is comprised of four elements:  1) Safer Working Practices; 2) Cover Supervisor Role, Qualities and Skills; 3) Behaviour Management Workshop and 4) Useful Teaching Strategies.  Discussion is encouraged.  It is required that Simply Education’s online Safeguarding tutorial has been completed PRIOR to attending the Introduction to Supply Teaching Course.

 

Course Overview

Safer Working Practices

The ‘Safer Working Practices’ course builds upon the Simply Education online Safeguarding tutorial, covering a range of key ways to keep yourself safe whilst working in the classroom.  The Safeguarding tutorial is a mandatory expectation for all staff working in an unsupervised capacity with children or young people for Simply Education and will give a basic understanding of roles and responsibilities in relation to safeguarding children and young people as well as an understanding of some of the indicators of potential abuse that they need to be aware of and act on.

 

Cover Supervisor Role, Qualities and Skills

The cover supervisor role requires you to be calm and adaptable, and to be able to create an effective working environment quickly with a class that you have probably never met before.  This part of the course examines the role and what effective cover supervisors are able to bring to it.

 

Behaviour Management Workshop

The most common bad behaviour / low level disruption experienced by all teachers consists of calling out, chatting at inappropriate times, arriving late, asking distracting questions, tapping, rocking, anything involving make-up or telecommunications equipment or indeed any other behaviour that impedes learning.  Proactive teachers create calm learning environments by being organised and having a ‘bag of tricks’ (which some call experience) to draw upon.  This part of the course shares some of the best ‘tricks’ with you so that if you have been left work for a lesson which at best could be described as ‘sketchy’ or at worst ‘non-existent, then you can still create that calm and effective learning environment.  The skills covered will help to reduce your stress and make your classroom a much better place to work for you and your pupils.

 

Useful Teaching Strategies

The teaching strategies covered, if employed well, should help you minimise the need for the strong behaviour management skills covered in part 3 of this training, and include:

  • Differentiation after the lesson has started
  • Pace
  • Questioning
  • Mastery
  • Quick Starters

These are of course only a narrow selection of the teaching strategies you will need.  Look out for our other courses for more information.

 

Continuous Development

As a Simply Education teacher you will have access to the support offered by our dedicated Education Development Managers.

 

Please remember to bring a packed lunch. 

Please inform Simply Education if you require any adjustments to attend our training.

 

 

Special Education Needs (Disability) Update (SEN[D]); a half day course to refresh key skills and raise awareness of the requirements / expectations for all teachers regarding the new ‘0-25 SEN Code of Practice’.  The course is comprised of two elements:  1) The SEN(D) Update and; 2) Teaching Strategies to support SEN(D) pupils.   It would useful if attendees had completed Simply Education’s online Safeguarding tutorial PRIOR to attending the SEN(D) Update course.

 

Course Overview

SEN(D) Update

The ‘SEN(D) Update course will clarify the latest arrangements for supporting SEN(D) pupils in schools, with focus given to teachers’ roles and responsibilities in relation to care, support and ensuring progress of these children.  There is a ‘no excuse’ culture in place, with every teacher expected to do their part in helping children with a range of extra challenges to meet their targets, and in doing so, helping the school meet theirs.  The course aims to develop understanding of the underlying principles of the new ‘0-25 SEN Code of Practice’, and looks to identify and offer strategies to dismantle the barriers to learning experienced by SEN(D) children.

 

Teaching Strategies to Support SEN(D) pupils

The teaching strategies covered, if employed well, should help your SEN(D) pupils feel more secure, enjoy their learning more and therefore make better progress.  The strategies discussed include:

  • Active learning
  • Group-work, pair work, pair-share etc.
  • Kinaesthetic learning
  • HAP, MAP & LAP materials and challenges
  • Scaffolded (basketball*) questioning
  • Plenary responsibilities
  • Assessment for Learning (AfL) – (see next slides)

These are of course only a narrow selection of the teaching strategies you will need.  Look out for our other courses for more information.
