Next Primary Humanities Network meeting: Come and join us!


Please note that you do not need to have attended the last meeting in order to be able to participate fully in this one.

Our fifth session of this academic year will continue with the theme of ‘Progression and assessment in geography and history’, bearing in mind that the reporting window will be opening for many shortly!  At our last meeting, participants were given guidance for assessing how pupils are progressing in geography and history, which was aligned to the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum and took into account the content of the draft Education Inspection Framework (EIF) proposed by Ofsted.  The aim was for attendees to leave with a clear vision of what it means to make progress in both geography and history and age-specific national expectations for pupils at 7, 9 and 11 years.  This should help inform planning and the marking of pupils’ work, as well as support good assessment practice within their school.

We had little time left to share and moderate pupils’ work together, however, so an ‘overspill’ session has been arranged for 1.00 pm to 3.30 pm on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 at Gloucester Farmers’ Club, Agriculture House, Greville Close, Sandhurst Road, Gloucester, GL2 9RG.  The cost per head is £35.00, with refreshments provided upon arrival and throughout the afternoon.

Please bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop/tablet and USB stick with you, along with a copy of your annual whole school curriculum plan, current scheme of work/topic map and examples of pupils’ work (e.g. above, at and below expected level for several year groups).

To reserve a place, please contact Emma Espley by  e-mail (  Please apply no later than Friday 10th May 2019.

I look forward to seeing some familiar faces, as well as a few new ones too.
