Code: 19ASS/001P Inter-school moderation of final teacher assessment of Key Stage 2 writing

Hertfordshire’s lead moderator for KS2 writing teacher assessment will once again be leading this opportunity for Year 6 teachers to discuss and moderate their final teacher assessment of writing, shortly before the KS2 data submission date. Teachers will be supported so that they are able to confidently justify their decisions in line with national exemplification and identify any last minute ‘gaps’ in pupil’s writing that can be closed before the final submission deadline (27th June). Through comparing their judgements with teachers from other schools and scrutinising the evidence for judgements against each of the ‘pupil can’ statements from the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAF), teachers can verify a sample of their Year 6 writing in order to ensure the consistency of their judgements. This course will be of use both for schools that are receiving an external statutory moderation, and for schools that are not. For schools not receiving an external moderation, attendance at this inter-school moderation will ensure that staff and schools can feel confident of the accuracy of their writing teacher assessment and that it is in line with national exemplification. For schools that are receiving an external moderation visit, this inter-school moderation meeting will allow opportunities for Year 6 staff to rehearse the professional discussion required at an external moderation, ensuring that they are confident in their knowledge of the evidence required. (If schools are to receive an external moderation visit this year, they will be notified on or after 17th May.) This is an ideal time for teachers to reflect on their writing evidence, to ensure that, if there are gaps, there is still time to act on this to the benefit of their pupils.
