Moderation and Assessment 2017-18

Teachers, Headteachers
Information and key dates for your diaries

The pupil can statements for KS1 and KS2 have changed this year. Ensure year 2 and year 6 colleagues have the 2017-18 TA frameworks and interim pre-key stage frameworks.

The Standards and Testing Agency (STA) have also produced new writing exemplification (and updated the reading, maths and science) – the working towards the standard exemplification for KS1 exemplifies the spelling statement which is partially met. Links to these documents and others are available on the Oxfordshire infolink assessment page.
