Alongside the suite of training we are offering as outlined below we also have the following opportunities for schools:

Non Statutory Moderation

OUTLINE

With the removal of statutory moderation at both EYFS and KS1 we are offering non statutory moderation to support schools with effective assessment and to quality assure judgments made. This will take place in school during the summer term. Dates will be agreed between the moderator and the school.

Schools will receive a visit from experienced moderators who will carry out moderation in line with the structure of a statutory moderation visit. The process will be collaborative with professional discussion playing a key role.
