Code: ASS/19/514/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers of Year 2: Cluster 10 – Berkhamsted, Tring and Hemel Hempstead (West)

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for Year 2 teachers to work together to explore the accuracy of their assessment judgements and achieve greater consistency in standards. Teachers will be supported in considering how secure their pupils are in their learning so far, and how well on track they are for the end of Key Stage 1 standards.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide a suggested reading assessment task for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. In January, information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks1/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: GOV/20/170/A Induction for Governors (EVENT FULL)

This full day course is for new governors for schools, academies and MAT's. This course is very important for all new governors so that they can be as effective as possible in helping the governing board in its role to secure school improvement. Delegates benefit from the opportunity to network with new governors from other schools and academies.

We recommend that all new governors attend the ‘Induction for governors’ course within the first 3 months of being appointed. In particular new governors derive maximum benefit if they book onto a course which takes place after they have attended at least one governing board meeting.

The three key roles of the governing board that will be covered during the course are:
1. vision and strategic
2. holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
3. Financial management and best value

Delegates will also receive an insight into how to get to know your school and taking part in effective meetings. The course will use a variety of teaching strategies including group discussion, case studies and tutor input.
