For subject leaders and school leaders
Ofsted have restated the importance of Assessment. This course provides History Subject Leaders with an opportunity to review the expectations of the Primary History curriculum through use of a skill progression planner and to reflect on how teacher assessments of learning can be judged effectively. Expectations at each key stage will be explored, and there will be the opportunity to examine outstanding practice from other schools. A variety of examples of ‘Assessment without Levels’ September 2015 will be explored. Important subject leader issues will also be addressed - such as how to create an effective history policy, and the requirements needed for school websites regarding the revised history curriculum.

By the end of this course you will:

  • have a greater understanding the units and exciting options in History at KS1 & KS2
  • have explored approaches to ‘Assessment without Levels’ by using planning for assessment documents
  • understand how well-chosen topics can enrich other curriculum areas
  • be able to produce a well written and efficient history policy
  • be aware of the requirements for your school website
  • know what Ofsted look for in outstanding history lessons
  • be able to audit, monitor and evaluate for further steps the history provision in your school
  • be able to feedback to colleagues with a staff meeting training plan
  • feel inspired to get back into school to try out the practical ideas and resources!!

They run their own club Thames and Field and have appeared on numerous documentaries & history programs. History Channnel’s hit TV show Mud Men followed their archeological adventures on the banks of the Thames, alongside co-presenter Johnny Vaughan.
