Moderation Sessions 2018-19

Cross Federation Moderation will give teachers the opportunity to come together in year groups to share best practice around assessment. Using the Primary Advantage Fundamentals, teachers will establish which children are on track to achieve their yearly objectives. These sessions will give practitioners the opportunity to share a range of assessment types, look closely at learning and share thinking. Practitioners are expected to bring a cross section of books and assessment evidence to discuss with their colleagues. This session will provoke in depth discussion around assessment, making judgements and responding to the needs of all learners.

Subject Leaders 

Subject leaders from across our 8 schools have the opportunity to get together throughout the year. The first meetings are scheduled for the Autumn term, and dates for further meetings will be arranged by the subject leader representatives themselves at that point.

This is an opportunity to discuss Ofsted updates, embed current systems, share best practice and plan new projects. Subject leaders will be able to reflect on the monitoring and assessment process in place and discuss the impact on teaching and learning in their subject area. This is an opportunity for subject leaders to innovate and enhance practice in the area they are passionate about.
