East Sussex Local Agreement for Amendments to Statutory Moderation Published

The East Sussex Local Agreement for 2018-19 has been published. All headteachers of East Sussex maintained primaries and primary academies, which have nominated East Sussex as their moderating body, must complete and return the agreement by 31st January 2019.

In October, a consultation on proposed changes to the East Sussex moderation model was launched: https://vsb.eastsussex.gov.uk/article/6507?schoolId=0.

Responses were generally in favour with fewer than 5 schools expressing reservations. Therefore, the Local Agreement has been amended to reflect these changes.

Headteachers should already have received an email with a copy of the agreement. The Local Agreement is also available on CZone and can be accessed by clicking this link.

Please complete the response form and the preferred dates form which can be found on pages 5 and 6 of the Local Agreement, and return these to KS1and2Assessment@eastsussex.gov.uk by the 31st of January 2019.

Executive headteachers will only need to complete one response form, but will need to list all the schools they represent on the form. Please complete a separate ‘preferred dates form’ for each school, unless your dates are flexible.
