Have you scheduled assessments yet this year to find out how your learners are progressing? Remember, the personalised assessments are statutory in the 2021-2022 school year and the requirements are set out in the Administration Handbook

A new pre-recorded webinar on using the reasoning reports and accompanying resources is now available. This follows an earlier webinar ‘An introduction to Numeracy (Reasoning)’, published in March.
