Polaris are running Moderation sessions for English, Maths EYFS and Science throughout 2018-9. These are informal sessions held in primary schools, which are an opportunity for teachers to get together with colleagues teaching the same phase to discuss and plan assessment and moderation. The sessions are open to all teachers in Polaris. (For subject-leader networks, please see www.polarisalliance.org.uk/support/network-groups). There will be three sessions for each group: one per term. The focus for each session will be decided at the subject leader network meetings

Purpose of the Moderation sessions

  • To provide a forum for discussion, focused on supporting teachers’ knowledge and understanding in how to plan, prepare for and assess key elements of the English, Maths, EYFS and Science curriculum
  • To support schools to collaborate and share good practice
  • To develop further understanding of statutory assessment and moderation
  • To clarify, through discussion, key expectations of the revised curriculum in English and Maths
  • To share practical tips and ideas for developing the teaching of English and Maths

Location

To make these Moderation sessions as accessible as possible to our whole alliance, we will be running each session in three areas: in York, Malton and Scarborough.

Cost

These sessions are FREE to Polaris members.
