Symphony Assessment System
With the removal of National Curriculum Levels, teachers and leaders must ensure that they can measure and demonstrate pupil attainment and progress in the new era. The schools in the Symphony Primary Schools Partnership have worked together to develop age-related expectations in all subjects. Furthermore, we have developed a simple and effective method for non-core subject leaders to analyse achievement across the whole school.
All schools played an active part in this process. Pairs and small groups of subject leaders have spent many hours together, defining the age-related expectations that you can see on other pages of this website.
Updates are now being made to various aspects of the system and these are distributed, free of charge.
