PA Plus subscription area
Gain access to over 450 resources, supporting mid-term planning for English and maths, expert guidance on assessment models, plus Early Years resources.
The National Curriculum brings various challenges for schools, not least in mid-term planning for core subjects, including English and mathematics, as well as assessment and Early Years. To support this Herts for Learning has developed PA Plus an essential range of over 450 high-quality resources that support primary schools with planning, assessment and progress-tracking.
The resources are available as individual digital downloads or packaged as zip files for ease of downloading multiple files in one go.
Summaries of the resources published each term are below.
Curriculum re-focusing self-evaluation tools for English and maths
In these new curriculum re-focusing self-evaluation tools, we have identified the key strands of focus for both leaders and teachers and used them to create self-evaluation matrices.
Although these are specific to English/mathematics, the resources can be used to explore any curriculum area so are a useful suite of tools for all senior and subject leaders.
In addition, PA Plus Maths and English Resource Summary documents have been created to support high quality provision and curriculum refocusing. Each image within the summary document is hyperlinked so, if you are logged into your PA plus account, you can click the link to navigate to the exact downloadable resource. These identify key documents but there are many more useful resources on the site.
