Conferences

Assessment Conference

Keystone Teaching School specialises in assessment and each year hold a conference in November, exploring the most up to date issues affecting primary schools in the area of assessment. In the past, we have had well known speakers such as Andy Cope, Dawn Copping, Gary Toward and Chris Henley. This is a day not to be missed, a chance to network with senior leaders, hear inspirational keynote speakers and participate in practical workshops which can be implemented in your own schools.

2020-21 Update – We have taken the decision to postpone this year’s assessment conference and our next conference will take place on Friday 19th November 2021.  More details to follow.

A great conference, packed with so much knowledge and highly experienced guest speakers, offering a unique balance between current thinking and classroom based practice. I felt I went away with renewed enthusiasm and practical strategies that can be implemented both as a Senior Leader and in the classroom. I would highly recommend it!
