The Team

The assessment team is led by the Assessment and Moderation Manager, Sarah Burtoft.

Statutory monitoring visits are carried out by the school advisory team and consultants who all receive annual training

Statutory moderation is carried out by a team of moderators. These include lead moderators in both KS1 and KS2. All moderators are appointed following a rigorous selection process and must undergo annual training and assessment. All training delivered follows the Standard and Assessment Agency requirements.

All moderators are experienced teachers of Y2 and Y6.

If you are interested in becoming a moderator, please visit the Moderator Role page.

EYFS support is provided by the Early Years Officers led by Phillippa Degnan.
