Thurrock Primary Assessment Tool (TPAT)

tpat logo TPAT IS NOW LIVE CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE WEBSITE
While primary schools across the nation struggle to assess under the new curriculum and find ways forward without levels, we believe that in Thurrock we have the answer.  A working party has been formed that will work towards ensuring that the assessment of children against age related expectations in the new curriculum is consistent and simplified by providing easily accessible resources and exemplification materials.  To aid the project funding has been secured from the Dilkes Primary Teaching School Alliance and the Thurrock Excellence Network.  The project intends to create free online access for all Thurrock schools who agree to join the project.
 
The starting point for the project is to collect a wide range of writing exemplification from across the borough to create our first set of standards files.  
 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact a member of the initial working party named below:

Rhys Latham - Dilkes Academy

Nicky Haslam – Giffards Primary Academy

Kevin Imbush – Somersheath Primary School
