Children First: an alternative approach to assessment
by Dame Alison Peacock
Alison will focus on her experiences of leading the Wroxham School, a primary school where children and adults are inspired by principles of ‘Learning without Limits’ to establish a learning community which is creative, inclusive and ambitious for all. She will talk about ways of enabling assessment to be an intrinsic part of day to day teaching that builds a culture of trust in which children can think and talk about their learning confidently. Alison will also discuss her role as a member of the government’s Commission on Assessment without Levels, and her optimism that the removal of levels provides space for a more equitable approach to assessment within classrooms.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
