Trust Standardisation, Moderation and Assessment days

There will be three days identified on the calendar for the academic year 2018 to 2019 that have been agreed by all of the Trust Secondary schools and will allow for more sustained collaborative working in all departments, these are in addition to the normal allocation of 5 days INSET time. Students are not expected to attend school on these days. Teachers will be engaged in training and development workshops to ensure that marking and assessment is accurate in all our schools. We have been able to accommodate a small number of departments working in this way this year but we wish to extend this to all departments as the subjects teaching new examination specifications expands. The extra days are in recognition of the increased workload teachers face because of the new specifications. We also recognise that schools cannot meet the costs of scheduling professional development meetings during operational days by covering colleagues with agency staffing.


Dates for 2020/21 will be announced towards the end of the 2019/20 academic year
