Statutory Assessment and Moderation information
26 Apr
100% of schools in Leicestershire who are taking part in the assessment and moderation of pupil’s work at KS1 and KS2 have signed and returned the 2017/2018 Moderation and Monitoring Agreement, identifying Leicestershire as the named authority for KS1 Phonics, KS2 monitoring and external moderation. The Agreement document applies to all maintained schools, including maintained special schools, academies including free schools, SCE schools and participating independent schools. Schools signing up with Leicestershire Local Authority are agreeing to participate in the statutory activities Leicestershire local authority undertakes as part of the assessment process. Leicestershire only engages in statutory activities with regard to moderation and assessment and these activities were reviewed and agreed by the Assessment Reference Group for Leicestershire in 2017. Statutory activity has not changed for 2017 / 2018 and the group meet only at times when statutory amendments are made. The Meet the Moderator events for both KS1 and KS2 are the only activities which are non-statutory and were introduced and remain in place to support the Assessment and Moderation process. The Appeals process for Leicestershire remains the same as for 2016 / 2017 and is explained in the Appeals document 2017 / 2018. Please find attached to this announcement a copy of the Leicestershire Local Agreement document and the appeals policy for Leicestershire. Should you have any questions regarding either of these items please email Moderation@leicestershire.gov.uk. For your reference as well is the link for the National Assessment calendar. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-assessments-calendar Please circulate to those who will need to use these documents.

LIAISE v3
25 Apr
LIAISE v3 is coming for Performance subscribers… We are pleased and excited to announce that our LIAISE reporting system will be upgraded to use Tableau software next year. We are the first local authority in the country to provide this for our schools.

Access to this industry leading software will come at no extra cost to you. The best way to learn about Tableau is to see it. Please take a look at our report on national Key Stage Four data as an example of how Tableau looks and how it can be used: Tableau KS4 analysis In the forthcoming weeks, you will receive more information about our Tableau reporting, including a password. All of your 2018 data will be reported this way. Primary schools can expect your first results before the end of term.
