The quality of learning and progress Grade 1-4
How well do learners acquire knowledge, understanding and learn and practise skills?
1 – acquire knowledge, develop understanding and learn and practise skills exceptionally well
2 – acquire knowledge, develop understanding and learn and practise skills well
3 – acquire knowledge, develop understanding and learn and practise skills satisfactorily
4 – acquire knowledge, understanding and practise skills inadequately

How well do learners enjoy their learning shown by interest, enthusiasm and engagement?
1 – demonstrate excellent concentration and are rarely off task, even in extended periods without direction from an

adult. They respond well to challenging activities and take control of their own learning successfully.
2 – apply themselves diligently in lessons, work at a good pace, are keen to produce their best work and are usually
interested and enthusiastic about their learning.
3 – work effectively when provided with appropriate tasks and guidance but lack confidence in improving the quality of
their work. They generally work steadily and occasionally show high levels of enthusiasm and interest.
4 – fail to work effectively unless closely directed by an adult and give up easily. They do not enjoy the activities
provided, which is reflected in poor completion of tasks.

How well do learners and groups of learners make progress?

1 – make progress that is at least good and is exemplary for some
2 – make at least good progress and some may make outstanding progress, with nothing that is inadequate
3 – make the progress expected given their starting points and some may make good progress. Progress is
inadequate in no major respect.
4 – make too little progress

The use of assessment to support learning

How well does teaching promote learning, progress and enjoyment for all learners?
1 – is good and much is outstanding, with the result that the learners are making exceptional progress. It is highly

effective in inspiring learners and ensuring that they learn extremely well. Excellent subject knowledge is applied
consistently to challenge and inspire learners. Resources, including new technology where relevant, make a marked
contribution to the quality of learning, as does precisely targeted support provided by other adults.
2 – is consistently effective in ensuring that learners are motivated and engaged. The great majority of teaching is

of learners?
1 – are acutely aware of their learners’ capabilities and of their prior learning and understanding, and plan very effectively

to build on these. Marking and dialogue between teachers, other adults and learners are consistently of a very high
quality. Learners understand in detail how to improve their work and are consistently supported in doing so. Teachers
systematically and effectively check learner’s understanding in lessons, anticipating where they may need to intervene
and doing so with striking impact on the quality of learning.
2 – plan well to meet the needs of all learners. Learners

How do learners behave in the lesson?

1 – thoughtful behaviour is an outstanding factor in their successful learning. They are highly considerate and very
supportive of each other in lessons and there is no evidence of disruptive behaviour.
2 – behaviour makes a strong contribution to learning showing responsibility in responding to the expectations of
staff, set consistent standards for themselves and respond quickly to any guidance from staff.
3 – behave so that learning proceeds appropriately and time is not wasted. They understand what is expected when
asked to work on their own or in small groups and only gentle prompting is needed to maintain discipline.
