Maths

 

September 2014 saw the Government introduce the new National Curriculum (NC) for both KS2 and KS3. The KS2 curriculum has undergone significant changes including the removal of assessment levels. KS3 will undergo a more gradual change as the GCSE syllabus evolves over the next few years. Alban Academy have now implemented the new NC for KS2, and parents who have had older siblings complete Years 5 and 6 previously will notice significant changes in the programme of study and the way assessment is carried out. The removal of levels and the delayed specific  guidance from the Government means that it will no longer be possible to do a straight comparison between the way progress use to be measured to the way it will now be measured, and there is a greater emphasis on summative assessment. The attached documents details the long term Scheme of Work (SoW) for Years 5 and 6. The KS3 SoW will largely remain unchanged for the 2015/16 academic year.
