Securing Judgement – Moderation Session for all Year 2 teachers

Securing Judgement – Moderation Session for all Year 2 teachers

This one-day event will bring together Year 2 teachers across Buckinghamshire schools. It is suitable for experienced year 2 teachers and teachers who are new to statutory end of KS1 assessments.  It will allow teachers to discuss their judgements for reading, writing and mathematics with colleagues beyond their own school and support a standardised application of national frameworks. This session offers an excellent opportunity to work with colleagues from diverse school contexts, including LA external moderators, and provides the basis for high level discussion about pupils’ reading, writing and mathematics assessments.

Participants will be asked to bring along a full sample of evidence for pupils whom they wish to consider; their own copies of national exemplification portfolios and the Teacher Assessment Framework for the end of KS1.

Evidence that participants need to bring along should relate to the current school year and consist of material produced during the normal course of lessons. It could include:

  • Workbooks for English and mathematics
  • Relevant work from across the curriculum where pupils have had the opportunity to apply and deepen knowledge, skills and understanding for English or mathematics
  • Teachers’ records or notes of attainment (e.g.in phonics, from guided reading, from collaborative problem-solving)
  • Reading logs, reviews, journals, self-assessments or reflections on learning
  • Any other existing evidence (e.g. photographs, record-sheets, progress tracking records)

Participants will have the chance to present their evidence, hear from other teachers, work with trained moderators, discuss their findings and consider implications for planning and pedagogy.


  • provide teachers with a structured session to moderate their judgements of attainment, using the Teacher Assessment Frameworks and national exemplification
  • provide an excellent opportunity to work with colleagues from across the county
  • provide opportunities for reflective ‘professional discussion’ about pupils’ evidence, with LA moderators and colleagues working in other schools
