KS1 & KS2 Moderation

External moderation is statutory. It gives confidence that schools’ TA judgements for KS1 and KS2 are accurate and consistent with national standards, as specified in the TA frameworks and the exemplification material.

LAs will inform schools on, or after Friday 17 May, if they are going to receive an external moderation visit. LAs will carry out moderation visits from Tuesday 4 June to Thursday 27 June. STA will monitor and provide quality assurance to LA external moderation processes.

LAs are required to externally moderate at least 25% of maintained schools. They are also required to externally moderate at least 25% of academies and participating independent schools that opt into the LA’s external moderation provision.  LAs must ensure all schools they are responsible for are moderated once every 4 years, or more frequently if required.
