In 2016 we launched our first assessment products designed specifically for the Welsh curriculum. Over 150 schools in Wales already use our assessment software for pupils with ALN, adapting our products designed for the English curriculum for use within Wales. The launch of our new products allows schools to assess using a more suitable framework linked to the curriculum they are teaching.
Our assessments are currently only available in English. We are looking at translating the content into Welsh and adding the Welsh aspect to the curriculum breakdowns. If you are interested in our assessments in Welsh, please contact us to register your interest.
Our first product was the foundation stage assessment for pupils aged 3 to 7. Our assessments cover the 7 areas of learning:
- Personal & Social Development, Well-being and Cultural Diversity
- Language, Literacy and Communication Skills (Includes literacy component of the LNF)
- Mathematical Development (Includes numeracy component of the LNF)
- Welsh Language Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World
- Physical Development
- Creative Development
Key Stage 2
Our Key Stage 2 assessment based on the Curriculum for Wales covers levels 1 to 5. This is based on the latest Curriculum for Wales: Programme of Study for English and Mathematics 2016 which incorporates the Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF). The Welsh Government have currently only released the English and Maths components. We will continually expand our range of breakdowns as new curriculum areas are released.
Schools may find our P Levels more suitable for pupils working significantly below their age related expectations. The P Levels can be used alongside the Welsh curriculum, giving schools the choice and flexibility on how they assess pupils with ALN.
