Over the last few years assessment has undergone some significant changes, with levels now being removed and the curriculum adapted to offer a different type of challenge.  The days where children went from one area of study to another at a rapid pace are now gone and there is much more of a focus on embedding learning and making sure that a new skill is ‘locked in’ for life. 

    Here at Markeaton we have embraced this change as we see it as more of a change in philosophy rather than the replacement of something old with something new.  Removing levels, on the surface, seems like quite a huge step to take but by clicking on the link below you will hopefully get a better understanding of what it means to the staff and pupils at Markeaton.
