On Wednesday 10th February. Teachers from Horizon met together to moderate standards in maths in the new curriculum. Staff from nursery to Y7 brought examples of their work and discussed how these compared with expected standards for their age group.
There was lots of valuable discussion around the new arrangements for SATs, collecting evidence and how to ensure that learning is embedded.
The staff from Horizon schools are fantastic at sharing their expertise and contributing to the learning of all.
