This session will cover:

  • Expectations for writing at EYFS, end of KS1 and end of KS2.
  • Moderation of writing using assessment frameworks, exemplifications and comparisons to writing from a range of schools.
  • We will also spend some time feeding back on anything we may have tried or implemented following discussions at previous meetings.

There will be a further session next term covering relevant developments in English and providing opportunities for delegates to share good practice. So that we are able to compare our writing please bring samples of work (this can be for any year group or focused around EYFS, Year 2 or Year 6). You may wish to send more than one delegate per school (£60 per delegate), particularly if you would like to use this opportunity to get evidence for external moderation.
