A New Curriculum came into effect from September 2014 and the Department of education no longer expects schools to use levels when assessing learners attainment.

At Longwood we work on age related expectations for all learners. Our tracking system enables us to colour code our learners against age related expectations and allows our parents and careres to understand where their individual children are in relationship to national attainment.

Red indicates below age related expectations, yellow at age related, green is above age related expectations and blue is working at greater depth.

All subjects have key characteristics for specific ages which is colour coded for individual learners and subjects. Our parents and carers can access individual development records via our secure system.
