Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit - 2019 ERA Highly Commended
We are delighted to announce that our Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit has been given the status as "Highly Commended" for the 2019 The Education Resource Awards (ERA). We have been recognised for the Primary Educational Resource or Equipment (Non-ICT) category.
Developed in consultation with the lead author, Maddy Barnes (Teacher, Literacy Consultant and Blogger) and with The Three Saints Academy Trust and St Helens TSA, the Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit, ensures accurate teacher assessment of writing and consistency across the school, which is high on the agenda for many primary school teachers. The Teacher’s Moderation Toolkit provides everything that is needed to equip staff with a range of resources to:
• support their own judgements, by providing high-quality, standardised, termly examples of real children’s writing;
• provide staff with examples of writing that they can annotate in phases or clusters, using non-negotiable writing sheets referenced to the national curriculum, which can be checked against annotated examples in the resource book; and
• share exemplars with pupils, to raise expectations, to peer assess a neutral piece of writing and to up-level writing.
This year our ERA entry featured case studies from Rimrose Hope C of E Primary School in Liverpool, St Stephen’s RC Primary School in Manchester and St Robert Bellarmine Catholic Primary School in Liverpool.
