The Board of the School Curriculum and Standards Authority has approved the continuation of Year 6 and Year 7 Moderation for 2019. To facilitate teacher planning for next year, teachers of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences are advised that the content for the 2019 common task, to be used in the moderation is listed below.

Participating schools in 2019 will have the responsibility to consider the curriculum content that will be covered in the moderation task to plan and sequence their teaching and learning accordingly. This will ensure that the relevant prior learning has taken place before the moderation tasks have been administered. Online registration for participation in the moderation will be open to schools in January 2019 with further details in the first circular of the year.
