A helping hand with writing moderation

At Rising Stars, we pride ourselves in our close relationships with schools and strive to provide a helping hand with teaching and learning wherever possible. Over the past few months, teachers have told us that preparation for writing moderation and assessment has been a challenge, so we’ve worked with two of our advisory teachers to publish helpful advice and resources which you’ll find listed below with links to find out more.
