SPARK Year 4 Writing Remote Judging Session Summer Term (Cancelled)

The removal of national curriculum levels has afforded schools great freedom to assess pupils using their chosen methodology, beyond the statutory assessment points. However, with this freedom comes the anxiety about pupil progress, which is particularly felt across KS2. Following a successful trial during the spring term we are pleased to offer a further summer term Year 4 writing cluster meeting.

This session is for teachers who have already used compara ...

Teaching Phonics in the Primary Phase Through Letters and Sounds

Developing Successful Middle Leaders - Understanding the Implications of the New Inspection Framework on Middle Leaders

Have you started to prepare for the new inspection framework that’s due to be implemented this September? What do these changes mean for your school and for your middle leaders? In the past, middle leaders were seen as a ‘buffer’ or ‘broker’, an implementer of school policy. There has been a dramatic shift in this thinking, and now inspection practice highlight middle leaders as being:

• Leaders of the curriculum
• Accountable for pupil achievement
• Responsible for the development and monitoring of the quality of teaching and learning
• Experts in the analysis and reporting of data
