The Commission on Assessment without Levels
We’re delighted to be welcoming Sue Hackman, former Chief Adviser on School Standards at the DfE, who will be taking us through the key findings of the Commission on Assessment. Sue will be discussing the challenges faced by schools post-levels, and taking an in-depth look at the best-practice recommendations of the Commission’s final report.
If you want to find out more about the Commission on Assessment without Levels we have a useful video summarising its key points.
Preparing your assessment system for inspection
Ofsted Senior HMI Angela Westington will be delivering a keynote speech highlighting the changes in inspection following the Commission on Assessment’s report. We’ll be finding out exactly what it is that Ofsted are looking for, and what it takes for a school’s assessment system to be graded ‘outstanding’.
Delegates will get to attend smaller, practical sessions run by leading Education Advisers and Headteachers. Topics covered include: Evidencing good progress in English and maths, Choosing external providers of assessment systems, Minimising the data-collection burden and Cross-school collaboration on moderation.Take a look at the full programme.
