Curriculum (am)

This curriculum session will look at meta-cognition, and discuss schemata and linking curricula across areas of knowledge in order to review and revisit knowledge in different contexts: enabling students to make the links recommended by the research that has influenced this important change in direction. This session will be hands on, and encourage staff new to teaching how to think about, and reflect on, their practice so that relevant challenge is provided in classrooms that produce clear and coherent rationale for curriculum design. Showing clear steps of intent; implementation and impact.

SEND with Debbie Gerring (NLE) and Alistair Crawford (SLE) (pm)
Our SEND session will explore the needs of our students, the barriers to learning they face and a range of strategies and solutions for NQTs to take back to school. As part of the session we will look at real case studies in our schools and hear feedback from students and expert practitioners regarding the challenges they face and how they overcome them. We will spend some time looking at what life is like through the eyes of a student with autism and look forward to sharing their aspirational stories with you.

As a result, you will access tools to regulate a healthy balance in all aspects of life and most importantly, a calmer, confident and satisfied you.”

RQT Year 3 Package

National statistics indicate that around 40% of new teachers leave the profession after four to five years. Teachers involved in the DTSA CPLD programme have asked if we can continue to offer some central support and networking when they are in their third year. The RQT Year 3 Package is our attempt to meet that need.

Our facilitator bases her sessions around “The Irresistible Curriculum”:

  • What is “The Irresistible Curriculum”? How do we use and plan for it?
  • Reflection on their own learning and understanding. Define what is the irresistible curriculum, and how they can implement it. Plan for learning and a research project in their own schools.
  • See the irresistible curriculum in practice by observing and participating in the “Once Upon a Time” whole school topic at Portway Junior School. Reflect on their work so far, how to monitor success.
  • Putting creativity into core subjects and use it to create deeper learning for your children.
  • Creativity in senior and middle leadership. How can you develop this?

Sessions will consist of the facilitator’s input, networking, sharing good practice and considering new resources and materials. There will be a clear focus towards consistently good and outstanding teaching. Opportunities to identify personal professional development needs and building up leadership skills will be provided.

The programme will run over the academic year starting September 2019 and consist of three afternoon sessions and one whole day of outdoor learning at Chatsworth.
