Key Stage 2 Music
Pupils' Progress and Target/Self Assessment Sheet

A Framework for Assessment and Assessment for Learning
in the new National Curriculum for Music

The Pupils' Progress and Target/Self Assessment Sheet shared on this page is closely linked with the new Music National Curriculum in England.

The sheet (see link below) was prepared to help me, as a class teacher, make the children in my class more aware of what they had achieved in different aspects of their learning in music and what some of the "next steps" for them may be. My hope is that, by using guided self-recording of their achievements, this will encourage my pupils to reflect on and monitor their own performance and recognise their achievements and will also contribute to their record of achievement. In addition, it will help me to give relevant, individual pupil or group targets in music and, since we no longer will be recording acievement using "levels", I hope that the sheet will enable me to give interim and end of year assessments of children's attainment in a way which is as accessible and transparent as possible. For me, this will be a profile of their achievement across the range of areas of the subject rather than any "best fit" number.

Items on the sheet are derived from example statements in the ISM document The National Curriculum for Music: An assessment and progression framework by Dr Alison Daubnet and Professor Martin Fautley together with statements from the draft of this publication.
