Assessment
The new curriculum was introduced in 2015 and all schools were asked to assess without levels. Due to this a range of companies created new assessments to support schools in the 'no level' world. Kirk Smeaton School decided to use a well known education specialist Chris Quigley and his assessment tracker 'Milestones'.
