These assessment guides for key stage 1-2 and key stage 3-4 explain how PSHE teachers can use an ipsative model of assessment in PSHE education, and describe a wide range of methods available to assess progress, with accompanying examples from real classrooms.

Topics covered in these guides include:

  • How to use baseline assessments to gauge prior knowledge and understanding
  • Assessment for learning over the course of a lesson or series of lessons
  • Measuring progress and endpoint assessments

Both guides also compare different assessment methods — outlining when and how to use each method to assess specific core aspects of PSHE learning. In conjunction with other planning tools, these documents will help colleagues to meet the guidelines for assessment in both the Department for Education’s new statutory guidance and Ofsted/ISI inspection frameworks.


Our Senior Subject Specialist, Jenny Fox, says:
“Assessment is a crucial aspect of PSHE education to get right, however it is an area where teachers can lack confidence. We are delighted to share these assessment guides to support colleagues developing their practice in assessment for and of learning in PSHE education and are grateful to the schools and pupils who have shared examples of their work with us.”
