SSIF Bid Information Launch.
An opportunity for school leaders to find out more about this SIFF bid, and contribute to its development.
The project aims to improve pupil outcomes through developing the leadership of teacher learning and development. School Leaders will receive support to develop their capacity to identify, plan, deliver and evaluate evidence based practice that improves the quality of teaching and pupil outcomes. This exciting project will include school leaders working with the Teacher Development Trust and Professor Dylan Wiliam. Classteachers will have the opportunity to take part in training provided by national and international organisations including The National Literacy Trust, Boolean Maths Hub, Voice 21 and Inner Drive. It will also provide opportunity to improve transition between Key Stage 2 and 3 and increase the retention of staff by enhancing CPD opportunities.
We are holding a launch information event at St Peter’s School. This will be an opportunity to find out more about the project and also to contribute your ideas to the bid. We are very keen that the menu of optional CPD covers as wide a range of needs as possible and would value your input in this.
Life can be tough at times. Particularly when you're young and trying to work out who you are and where you fit in the world as well as dealing with the challenges life throws at you. Resilience is something that we build and develop through life and is shaped and moulded by our insights as we overcome adversity. So how do we support young people who may have limited life experience and a lesser ability to reflect and learn from difficult events?
This briefing is the third in a series of three over each academic year and will provide up-to-date information to support leaders of English. This will include a summary of national and regional priorities and will, therefore, be helpful to leaders of English networks in Multi-Academy Trusts who wish to disseminate the information to their colleagues and also to English subject leaders who are not part of any other network.
Understanding the Gap Conference 2 - Ilminster, Nr Yeovil
Following the success of our conference in October, this day is another opportunity to hear the findings of substantial research carried out by Professor Tess Ridge from Bath University and Jim Davis from the Children's Society that will impact on the decision making process for those children living in poverty and on Pupil Premium in your school.
We also welcome again Marc Rowland, who has kindly agreed to another inspiring talk about maximising the impact of pupil premium.
Pupil Behaviour Management
“Children are not born with an understanding of the rules of acceptable behaviour - they have to learn them and need adults to help them.”
This day aims to give you a multi-layered approach to behaviour improvement in your classroom or school. We will be deepening our understanding of the causes of challenging behaviour, providing practical strategies in the classroom to reduce these behaviours and exploring ways to respond to challenging behaviour in a positive way that enables children to change their behaviour in future.
Aimed at all Primary School Teachers. ( SSIF schools, please use discount code). Book now, limited places available.
Date: Tuesday 17th April 9.30am-3.30pm
Venue: The School House, Bournville Primary School, Weston-super-Mare
"To influence beliefs and actions, quiet conversations can be as powerful as megaphones. It's not just about the message; it's about having the right conversation with the right person at the right opportunity." This session is about the skills and techniques helpful in managing difficult feedback, raising potentially challenging issues and building rapport with individuals to ensure masseages can be heard.
