PRIMARY WRITING MODERATION PROJECT September 2016 – July 2017 (all primary teachers)

Support and Joint Practice Development in Moderating Primary Writing

Bradford Birth to 19 Teaching School Alliance are pleased to offer this exciting opportunity to develop your understanding of writing under the new assessment framework. Using the process of joint practice development, teachers will work together, led by Alison Philipson, to create a high-quality portfolio of annotated writing, exemplifying age-related expectations from Y1 to Y6.

Delegates 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.

Alison Philipson is a Literacy and Assessment Consultant with extensive primary school experience which includes classroom practice across the primary age range, Literacy leadership and leading teacher status.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants have to attend all 3 workshops for the one year group.

COST: The price for all 3 workshops is £300.00.
