Code: ASS/20/464/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 12 - Berkhamsted and Tring

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for teachers to work together with colleagues across schools, to help to build a consistent understanding of the national curriculum standards and year group expectations. We will also use the sessions to promote good practice in building powerful assessment and formative feedback opportunities into everyday learning in order to plug gaps, build on existing learning and ensure progression in reading and writing skills.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide suggested assessment tasks for both reading and writing for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. Information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks2/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: GOV/20/262/A Safer recruitment

This nationally accredited full day ‘Safer recruitment’ training is suitable for governors and staff of schools/academies involved in the recruitment process. This course is applicable for those who have had no previous training - if you have attended ‘Safer recruitment’ training within the past 5 years’ there is a separate refresher course for those who wish to refresh their accreditation. (Please check if you are unsure)

The principles and actions for safer recruitment derive from the Bichard Inquiry which was formed following the tragic events of the 'Soham case' (2004). The Inquiry's Report highlighted flaws and shortcomings in the recruitment process that allowed Ian Huntley to be employed as a caretaker at Soham Community School. The Bichard Inquiry recommended that all governing boards have members who have been safer recruitment trained and that appointment panels for school leadership posts include at least one governor who has been safer recruitment trained. This course is based on the Safer Recruitment Consortium national programme.

Please note that attendance to the whole day is required in order to achieve accreditation.

The session will:

  • raise awareness of the Bichard Inquiry Report and the safer recruitment framework
  • look at data and trends in school/academy incidents of abuse
  • look at safer recruitment processes and policies
  • provide an opportunity to go through the recruitment process
Pre-course reading is available for all delegates to read through before the date of the training, please ensure to read this in advance.

Staff attending from a subscribing school will be charged £100
