(Information for the school and appropriate authority)

• In a few subjects, leaders have not been able to find out if the curriculum is helping pupils to learn all that they should across the full key stage. This hinders them from being assured that pupils are knowing more and remembering more over time. Leaders should make sure they gain a full picture of pupils' knowledge across an entire key stage.
