Half-day training The Writing Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact

Delivered by Herts for Learning and Collins


Rethink your approach to writing assessment with consistent expectations of standards from Years 1-6, and understand how to build a curriculum with appropriate coverage, structure and sequencing.

During this half day training you will take part in activities illustrating how each year group can ensure that end of year standards are at least in line with those expected at the ends of the key stages.

You will also understand how to use this concise assessment information to plan for a ‘rich and deep’ (Ofsted School Inspection Update)  curriculum that is reactive, focused and well informed.
