NW3 Maths Hub would like to invite ALL primary schools across Liverpool, St Helens, Wigan, Sefton, and Knowsley the chance to attend the following Work Group:
Effective Diagnostic Assessment to Assist Recovery
This is a 2-part Work Group that will explore effective, high quality diagnostic assessment.
Diagnostic assessment gives teachers an understanding of children’s learning so that they can plan their teaching to match the needs of the class or their additional interventions to match the needs of smaller groups or individuals.
According to the Education Endowment Foundation: “High-quality assessment is essential to great teaching, helping us understand what pupils have (or have not) learned. Targeted diagnostic assessments can support teachers to monitor pupils’ progress, particularly as they re-establish classroom routines and recover any learning loss.”
Participants should be either:
· 2 teachers from each school, or
· 1 teacher and one TA
This Work Group is for 2 people to attend as a pair.
Participants will receive an understanding of the principles and practices of diagnostic assessment together with a range of guidance materials to trial. To build capacity within school the selected participants should be able to disseminate relevant approaches.

This Work Group is FREE Of CHARGE.
There are limited spaces on this Work Group. Spaces will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
Schools should select one key stage to sign up for based on either teacher capacity or pupil needs. Although the diagnostic assessment will initially focus on the selected key stage, this can then be disseminated to other key stages.
This Work Group will be repeated in the autumn term.
