Whole Alliance

Welcome to the Portswood Teaching School Alliance. Throughout the year there are opportunities for the Alliance to meet as a whole, as well as to welcome new members.


Annual Meetings

Tuesday 30 January 2018, 12.30-3.00pm, Novotel Southampton

Marking and Feedback – Dr Chris Weadon
We are delighted to welcome Dr Chris Weadon as key note speaker who will provide an input on comparative judgement.  He will introduce ‘No More Marking’ – a system of comparative judgement allowing you to assess work more accurately than traditional marking techniques: less time marking, more accurate results.

There is no charge for attendance but we do need to know numbers so that a lunch can be provided on arrival.  To secure your place please make a booking or email enquiries@ptsa.org.uk



The 2017 annual meeting was held on Tuesday 24 January at the Novotel Southampton.  We were delighted to welcome input from Stuart Gemmell who developed the Emotional First Aid programme as well as Sarah Anderson of Swaythling Primary School who are an accredited ‘School of Sanctuary’.
