In light of the current conditions for PD, we have changed the format and focus of our Moderation Toolkit Roadshows this year.
- identifying and prioritising writing objectives for the remainder of the academic year;
- exploring how to fill gaps and inspire confident writers;
- identifying how to both support and challenge so that all pupils make progress in writing;
- looking at resources that will motivate and engage writers;
- confirming teacher judgements for writing.
The Teacher Moderation Toolkit won the ‘Highly commended’ award in the ‘Best Primary Resource’ category at the ERA (Education Resource Award) in 2018-19. The Writing Moderation Toolkit Roadshow was oversubscribed last year.
Testimonial: “When the 2014 curriculum was introduced, some teachers felt unsure of the expectations within each year group. The toolkit has changed this. Quickly, teachers have a point of reference – a comparative tool”. Deputy Headteacher, Salford.
