Click on the link above to go to Youtube and watch his video explaining the thinking behind the new curriculum and, more importantly why assessment ‘levels’ have been removed- to move towards children being assessed on their secure understanding of key concepts and skills rather than achieving a ‘level 4’- ie ‘teaching fewer things in greater depth’.
