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.

Middle leaders – understanding your role in the context of the new Ofsted framework

• 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
• Role models for a culture of professional learning in their team ...
