Assessment & Moderation: Supporting KS2 Pupils to Achieve in English (Online Training)


A session for teaching assistants and other support staff working with pupils in KS2

No cost to schools that subscribed to the School Compliance and Governor training 2019-20 programme.


In this session, we will explore the complexities of reading comprehension and reflect on what we do as ‘good’ readers. We will explore a wide range of active reading strategies to help support our pupils to make sense of text and we will think about the different types of questions we ask to check pupil understanding. In the second part, we will consider our role in supporting pupils to write, from initial planning and writing their first draft to making improvements.


  • To understand the complexities of reading comprehension
  • To explore strategies and activities to develop pupils’ language comprehension
  • To explore strategies to support pupils through the writing process
