Overview of training:
Do you feel confident about the end of Key Stage One assessment processes and internal moderation? Do you have a consistent Key Stage approach to moderating reading, writing and maths? Can you assess reading, writing and mathematics with accuracy and confidence? Are you able to identify gaps in learning with a view to accelerating progress? Are you new to Year Two?
This training will help KS1 staff to feel in control of the end of Key Stage assessment with practical hints and tips, useful pupil resources and ideas for cross-curricular links. This is an informative and practical course that is aimed at English Subject Leaders, teachers in KS1 (particularly, but not exclusively Y2) and Senior Leadership team members.
STA Assessment Guidance states – Moderation allows teachers to benchmark judgements, while ensuring consistent standards and reliable outcomes. Internal moderation is a non-statutory but vital process conducted by schools internally and, where possible, with other schools. Moderation should be a collaborative process undertaken throughout the academic year and normally with colleagues across key stages. This supports the quality assurance of TA judgements and provides a valuable opportunity for professional development. (Assessment and Reporting Arrangements – STA)
