Why is this conference relevant?

Two years on from the reforms to assessment in primary schools and you are still faced with a severe lack of clarity and guidance.

  • What will Ofsted judge your pupils’ progress against next year?
  • What will the KS2 SATs scaled scores look like?
  • When will we have examples of expected progress and other descriptors?

With so many unanswered questions and so little guidance, you must ensure your school has developed a clear assessment strategy, can accurately demonstrate progress and that your staff have the confidence to support pupil development under new systems.

What can I expect?

  • Learn how to ensure accurate judgments from all staff to maintain a consistent, whole school approach to assessment
  • Understand how you can accurately measure pupil progress and what data you need to support this
  • Hear from recently inspected schools on what Ofsted will expect to see from your chosen model of assessment and what they will judge as Outstanding progress

Who should attend?

  • Headteachers & Principals
  • Deputy Headteachers & Vice Principals
  • Assistant Headteachers & Principals
  • Assessment Co-ordinators
  • KS1 & KS2 Co-ordinators
