My school tried an alternative curiculum last term that did not do what we wanted and as a reslt of that we have gone back to having one 50 minute lesson of History a week.
I have just got the yr 7 and 8 students to do a baseline assessment for History (I started the school in Sept) and very few have got higher then a low level 3.
How many levels of progress should I be targetting for a condensed 2 yr KS3, especially taking into consideration that they did no History last term?

In our school Level three in Year 7 is generally normal for most of our students, for year year 8 you are looking at about level 4/5. We never have had the primary levels for histroy, I think our targets are based on various aspects but particualry literacy level.

For Yr7 History I base it on their KS2 English level as a starting point. I'd then add 2 sub levels per year. So say for example if a child got a 4b on FFT based on their KS2 English, then I would target 4a, 4a 5c for Yr7 (Term 1, 2 and 3 targets) and then in Yr 7 5c, 5b, 5b (again in T1 to T3) That would be reasonable to move along at 2 levels progress. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if what this document was created for or not, but it does answer the question... They do provide a nice guide for assessing below level four, which is where many students languish unacknowledged, partly as we aren't really taught anything about assessment below L4 during ITT.
