This full-day course, with optional half day follow up session, is delivered jointly by the English and Assessment teams, and will focus on what ‘working at great depth’ in Year 6 could look like for writing in the Year 6 classroom.
Using the Teacher Assessment Framework in conjunction with writing exemplars, delegates will explore the requirements for greater depth and provide detailed guidance on the sorts of evidence that would support a judgement at this standard. A range of teaching approaches, writing opportunities and suitable texts to support pupils in achieving the greater depth measure will be shared. Developing pupils as confident, mature writers - both in technical and authorial terms - will underpin the course content.
New for 2019-2020: A limited number of places are available for delegates to return for a half-day follow up session on 20th January. This session will provide an opportunity for delegates to review the progress made in their focus pupils’ writing and to evaluate their performance in relation to the GDS standard.
Places are strictly limited in order to facilitate tightly focused professional dialogue and guidance. A total of 20 places are avaialble. Please book separately using course code 20ASS/001P. Places available on a first come, first served basis at a cost of £78 per delegate.
This course will largely be a repeat of content from the 19th March conference, for those unable to attend on that day or addressing the requirements later. It will support schools to ensure full compliance with the new curriculum as a minimum offer to students and to meet the expectations of Ofsted from September 2020.Essential Information
This half-day session is provided by Data Management Services to assist schools in the production of an accurate School Workforce Census (SWC) return. The first part of the session will involve understanding the data in Personnel within SIMS and running and checking reports relevant to the SWC return. The second part of the session will involve running the SWC return, correcting errors and checking the details reports generated. These sessions are offered to nursery, primary, special, middle and secondary school users.Essential Information
This additional course, will allow delegates to carry out the processes covered in the School Workforce Census training, on their own school data, enabling delegates to complete the process with guidance from a DMS consultant.
Delegates should have a basic familiarity of Personnel in SIMS and have their own login to the system.
Shortly before the course your school will be provided with instructions for setting up the remote connection. It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that these instructions are followed and it should be noted that failure to do so may result in the delegates being unable to work on their school’s own data during this session.
This essential workshop is part of a county-wide programme to introduce schools to the Hertfordshire SEND toolkit.

Together this suite of materials provides schools with a vision, a self-evaluation framework and now has a toolkit providing a range of resources, tools and guidance to support the onward journey.Essential Information
