Too much valuable teacher time is devoted to the kind of marking and feedback which does little to improve pupils' learning. This easy to read guide introduces a range of innovative and practical strategies to ensure that assessment genuinely is for learning
This is the story of one school's successful journey to a 'life after levels'. Together, the Headteacher and staff at one successful school took on the challenge: Where do we begin? What is the best assessment system for our school and our children? How do we make the most of assessment opportunities in the classroom? How do we create an assessment policy from scratch and implement it in the school? How do we evaluate it, re-shape it and talk about it to parents, the wider school community and our colleagues in primary education? Through exploring one school’s story, this text supports teachers and schools in a time of uncertainty, confusion and choice to make the most of the new opportunity to assess children without the restrictions of levels. "The removal of Levels has given all professionals involved in education a unique opportunity to rediscover what we value in this key aspect of teaching and learning...and it is an opportunity that we must grab with both hands. I want this book to provide a time for reflection for teachers and school leaders to re-adjust their thinking on assessment and to get excited about it." - Sam Hunter -

What impact have the unprecedented and rapid changes to the structure of education in England had on school governors and policy makers? And what effect has the intensifying media and regulatory focus had on the volunteers who take on the job? Jacqueline Baxter takes the 2014 ‘Trojan Horse’ scandal, in which it was alleged that governors at 25 Birmingham schools were involved in the “Islamisation” of secular state schools, as a focus point to examine the pressures and challenges in the current system. Informed by her twenty years’ experience as a school governor, she considers both media analysis and policy as well as the implications for the future of a democratic system of education in England.
The national programme of four-yearly school inspections was introduced in 1993, based on common criteria set out in OFSTED’s Handbook for the Inspection of Schools. Revised guidelines were introduced in February 1996, reflecting the lessons learned, and this book, originally published in 1996 articulates ideas that would have informed these revisions, including short essays by the Secretary of State for Education and Employment and the Education spokesmen of the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties. Registered inspectors, teachers, researchers, parents, school governors, policy analysts and policy makers all offer their experience of the strengths, weaknesses and outcomes of the OFSTED inspection process. The book is a companion to Improvement through Inspection? – Complementary Approaches to School Development by the same Editors, published and now reissued simultaneously.
