Statutory assessment and moderation

Statutory assessment and moderation

teacher meetingLocal authorities have a statutory duty to moderate the teacher assessment judgements each year for a minimum sample of 25% of schools in key stages 1 and 2.

For Key stage 1 this requires the moderation of judgments in reading, writing, and maths, at key stage 2 moderation takes place for writing judgements only.

Local authorities also have a statutory duty to monitor the administration of key stage 2 (KS2) national curriculum tests and the phonics screening check.

The management of this process is delivered by Buckinghamshire Council.
