Primary Quality Mark and Curriculum 2014

For the last few years, I've been part of a team which has moderated applications for the Geographical Association's Primary Geography Quality Mark.

This is a great privilege as I am able to see some great practice from schools around the country. I'm currently reading through my batch of portfolios and writing my reports which will then be discussed on the moderation day next Friday.
There are some really nice ideas and work from enthusiastic teachers and students.

If you're in London on the 3rd of July, there's a useful event that you could come to.

This is the final of a series of events aimed at preparing Primary teachers for the changes to the Primary Curriculum.

The event at the Kia Oval is described in the link.
There are workshops for each of the main subjects provided by subject associations.
There's also a Keynote address by Professor Robin Alexander
