The second topic in the Real World Learning virtual event series was focused on pupil assessment and progress at a time of disruptive and changeable teaching and learning practices.

The themes for the day included:

  • Assessment beyond the classroom
  • Identifying attainment gaps through remote learning
  • ‘The kids are alright’ – Protecting wellbeing with stress-free assessment
  • Raising attainment with an active support network
