Reading Assessment Hub

Main aims of the project in 2019 - 20

The Hub will provide opportunities for teachers and literacy leaders to work together to develop an effective reading profile. The work will be based on research and effective practice, supported by SLEs and the Camden Learning Literacy Consultant. Research tells us that quality Assessment for Learning is a key factor in improving outcomes.


Our main aims will be:-

  • To identify an effective reading profile and toolkit which supports reading moderation in KS1 and KS2
  • To support teachers to provide evidence of pupil attainment in reading against expectations
  • To evaluate and trial the use of a range of reading resources to support assessment of attainment
  • To create opportunities to share best practice and learn from one another through a research model and lesson study
Want to get involved?

Which staff would benefit from joining and why?

Teachers and literacy leaders who are keen to explore effective teacher marking and pupil feedback which has the greatest impact on accelerating progress in reading and writing
Most sessions will include visits to member schools and classrooms to research and share existing good practice and provide opportunities to further develop the work that teachers are currently doing
They can work in collaboration to develop a toolkit which will be shared in Camden Schools

What does the Hub plan to achieve and what resources will be created?

  • Develop and produce a model toolkit for reading, with recommended resources and guidance to support effective assessment and moderation
  • Further improvement in the use of assessment strategies, with a focus on pupils’ attitudes and reading behaviours, to identify next steps in learning.
  • To impact positively on progress in reading across years 1 to 6.
  • To improve models of effective assessment for learning across member schools
