Progression Maps

Progress maps for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 are available in the Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities guidance. These maps lay out a sequence of progression.

From Foundation Stage towards the end of Key Stage 1

Pupils begin working on structured tasks, involving only a small number of steps and aspects and relating to familiar and concrete contexts. They move towards less structured tasks with more steps, relating to contexts beyond their immediate experience. From an early stage, pupils should have opportunities to work independently and to take initiatives.

From the end of Key Stage 1 towards the end of Key Stage 2

Pupils work on tasks that involve a number of steps or aspects, requiring them to deal with more wide-ranging information. The learning opportunities increasingly deal with contexts beyond the immediate and observable. Pupils should have opportunities to demonstrate more independence and consistency in their work throughout the key stage.

From the end of Key Stage 1 towards the end of Key Stage 2

Pupils work on tasks that involve a number of steps or aspects, requiring them to deal with more wide-ranging information. The learning opportunities increasingly deal with contexts beyond the immediate and observable. Pupils should have opportunities to demonstrate more independence and consistency in their work throughout the key stage.

From the end of Key Stage 2 towards the end of Key Stage 3

Pupils engage in increasingly multi-dimensional and multi-step tasks. They deal with an increasingly wide range of information and work on more open-ended tasks. Pupils should have opportunities to demonstrate more independence and consistency in their work throughout the key stage, to identify their own learning needs and to set their own learning goals.
