Moderation in all things

You may have seen that the education press and on the internet that a debate is raging about the quality of external moderation that schools can expect for Key Stage 1 outcomes and Key Stage 2 writing. At Bevington we have been working together, and as a team with other local schools, to make sure we can come to an agreed consensus about outcomes This has been  built on a secure evidence base over the course of this year. This afternoon we were working hard to collect further exemplification to support our understanding of what different children have achieved across our year groups. It is very important to us that we are accurate in our assessment and we know it is to the children and parents as well. Thanks to Mr Doyle and Mr Adams for leading the session, which was very productive.
