New information on moderation has also been announced: -
- LAs will be given a list of schools to moderate this year which they will be able to top up depending on their own criteria
- Moderation will take place after teacher assessment data has been submitted - this will be earlier than usual and they are suggesting that moderation takes place in June and early July
- Moderation will NOT be about professional discussion as it previously was and teachers are not expected to be present (although they suggest we might meet them at the end)
- Further guidance will be released before the end of this term
- Some exemplification will be produced in late January.
