This document is intended to help schools make progress with the whole-school development of Assessment for Learning (AfL) by providing examples of approaches and strategies different schools have used.
They are not a recipe for success but provide ideas, for example, for discussion at a senior leadership team (SLT) meeting and to inform action planning.
School leaders will wish to consider:
- which are appropriate for their school
- which would involve further development or refinement of existing practice
- which would involve introducing new approaches and ways of working.
The examples of approaches and strategies used by schools relate to six focuses:
- School structures, systems and processes
- Developing a shared understanding of AfL
- Monitoring and evaluating impact
- Tracking individual pupil progress and curricular target-setting
- Collaborative working within a learning community
- Partnership with parents and carers
