Assessment for All

Thursday, 6th October 2022 9:30 am -3:30 pm
£185 per ticket

Are you looking for an assessment framework for your pupils working below the National Standard?

At Fairfields we believe all children can achieve. We are committed to ensuring we measure the aspects of a child’s learning that we value.

Our Assessment for All is designed to ensure we are measuring the progress of each pupil, reflecting their own learning journey.

The information captured using this assessment can also be used to inform planning, ensuring it is purposeful, meaningful and memorable, shaping the progress pupils make.

We believe our Assessment for All is an effective tool for making summative assessment judgements for all pupils working below the National Standard  at KS1 & KS2 has the potential for merging with other school systems that may already be in place.

We are hosting a training programme to support schools in using our Assessment for All materials. As part of the programme you will get a copy of the Assessment Framework and  additional documents to support you with tracking progress and sharing information with parents.

Session Date -  Thursday 6th October 2022 9.30-3.30 

We will also be running a Moderation session on 23rd February 2023 9:30-12pm. Please book on seperately if you would like to attend.
