SUPPORT AND JOINT PRACTICE DEVELOPMENT IN PRIMARY WRITING
This is an exciting opportunity to develop the understanding of writing under the new assessment framework. Using the process of joint practice development, teachers will work together across three terms to create a high quality portfolio of annotated writing,
exemplifying all three standards - 'working towards', working at' and 'working at greater depth' - in Y1 – Y6.
Led by Bradford Birth to19 TSA Specialist Leaders of Education and supported by Alison Philipson teachers will focus on assessing the whole child not just individual pieces of writing and will track children’s progress in writing across the year. Bradford
teachers involved in this project will learn the skills to enable your school to become a beacon school for assessment across the Bradford district.
However, the project will be about so much more than moderation - spinning off from moderation comes in-depth discussions around teaching and learning and sharing of good practice around what progression looks like across primary school. Your school’s involvement
in this project will mean that all teachers across school understand progression and are working towards children leaving Y6 with the skills they need.
We will take a deep dive into the curriculum for that year group - discussing the criteria, creating examples, finding examples in writing – so that teachers have a full understanding of what age related expectations look like for their year group.
Then, teachers will have the opportunity to carry out a full analysis of the writing they have brought, identifying which of the criteria children are already meeting, what they need to learn next and how far into age related expectations they are. Teachers
will also be supported with how to address gaps in learning so that by the next session, the same children will have moved on in their learning and be further into age related expectations for their year group. Each of these children will be representative
of their ability group so this CPD will have an impact on the whole class and consequently the school. We aim to identify CPD requirements at each session - these will be addressed at subsequent sessions and also used to identify best practice within schools.
This model of continuing professional development across the year has been proven to have a huge impact on both individuals and schools and consequently on the children.
Some quotes from recent participants include:
My children's learning will now be more focussed and purposeful.
I have a greater understanding of what age related expectations and greater depth is.
A really excellent day - thank you!
All sessions will be led by BBto19 TSA Specialist Leaders of Education and by skilled moderators from across the Bradford District with support from Alison Philipson.
All sessions are 9.30 to 4pm.
