An opportunity for schools to moderate writing with other schools and MACs. Facilitated by two outstanding providers.
Last year we had over 40 schools and multiple MAC’s attend this day. It was fantastic. Staff left with concrete steps to improve writing. Send a KS1 and a KS2 lead, for the whole day. It’s worth it
