Do your teachers feel secure in their teacher assessment judgements for pupils working below the national expectations? The statutory assessment arrangemnets for pupils working below the standard of the national curriculum assessments has changed for 2019. P scales 1 to 4 will continue for pupils not engaged in subject-specific study. But pupils who engage in subject-specific study and would have previously been judged against P scales 5 to 8 or Foundations for the expected standard will now be assessed against the standards 1 to 4 at KS1 and 1 to 6 at KS2. This is an ideal opportunity for Year 2 and 6 teachers to bench mark their pupils books against the standards and see how other teachers are evidencing the work. Emma Blackman, Bexley Adviser and STA accredited moderator will lead the session which will focus on securing accuracy in the teacher assessments of Y2 mathematics and English.
This session will provide an opportunity for teachers to work together with the school based moderators, LA moderators and other schools to discuss and validate their assessment judgements in mathematics and English. They will review a selection of maths and English work in order to make judgments. Colleagues from special schools and main stream schools from both KS1 and KS2 will work together to ensure that their assessments are accurate and consistent with national standards.
You will feel more secure about your teacher assessment judgements for pupils who are engagd in subject-specific study and are being assessed against the standards 1 to 4 at KS1 and 1 to 6 at KS2.
Please note that teachers should bring with them mathematical and English books/work for pupils who engage in subject-specific study and are being assessed against the standards 1 to 4 at KS1 and 1 to 6 at KS2. Please bring your teacher assessment frameworks with you. Refreshments will be provided.
