The challenge

  • Students are at different points in their learning and have different learning needs
  • School structures and processes result in some students’ learning needs not being identified and met
  • Make sure every student is engaged and making good progress

The solution

  • A curriculum structure based on evidence of how essential knowledge, skills and understandings typically develop
  • Valuing teachers’ understandings of the nature of progress and how instruction influences learning
  • Assessments of current attainment and long-term learning progress used to inform decision making
