Birmingham offers tools for supporting schools in the identification and tracking of pupils working below expected levels of the NC in English and Maths, using the Language & Literacy Toolkit and Maths Toolkit. Within these pages you will find all the information and documents you will need to use the A2E Birmingham Language and Literacy Toolkit and A2E Birmingham Maths Toolkit.
The Language and Literacy Toolkit is an updated version of the original SEN Audit Continuum, extending the descriptors for both Reading & Writing and Speaking & Listening from Nursery to the end of Year 6 expectations and in response to feedback from schools this has been presented in a revised format.
learning_aspect_awardThe Language and Literacy Toolkit focuses on attainment in speaking and listening, reading and writing. It is a tool that supports schools in identifying specific levels of need and ability for pupils with their literacy skills (including speaking and listening). The resource breaks down areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening into discrete skills on a continuum that enables schools to set appropriate and aspirational targets and to track progress, as well as supporting teachers with a range of teaching and learning ideas to develop skills alongside quality first teaching in the classroom.
The Maths Toolkit is a new tool which focuses on the identification of barriers to learning in Maths. In the same way as the Language and Literacy continuum, the Maths Framework supports schools to identify gaps in knowledge, next steps and provides a range of teaching and learning ideas to support teachers to develop these skills alongside quality first teaching in the classroom.
