FURTHER RECOGNITION TO ELMWOOD SCHOOL FOR WORKING COLLABORATIVELY TO SUPPORT OTHER SENIOR AND MIDDLE LEADERS/PUPILS WITH SEMH
This was part of a targeted approach to validate English and Maths work across KS3 and KS4 whilst providing high quality professional development regarding key issues that curriculum leads are facing in their respected Schools. A massive thanks goes to Gemma Francis (Curriculum Lead for Maths) and Chris Bowen (Curriculum Lead for English) whose input has greatly supported colleagues and pupils.
Extract from Ofsted’s Monitoring Report for Mount Gilbert, Telford and Wrekin reads “Leaders took action to improve the accuracy of teachers’ assessments and, as part of this process, now moderates pupils’ work every half-term. Teachers’ assessments are further checked externally through leaders from a nearby school.” (Pg 8, April 2016)
FEEDBACK FROM TEAM TEACH TRAINING TO LOCAL SCHOOLS
Dan Mason, Principal, Pool Hayes Academy quoted:
‘For us it has been great – really stamped down on a few major players and was very effective in dealing with some of our more dangerous pupils. Good to inform parents of the law and how we train staff in this too.’
Al Lawrenson, Lead Behaviour Professional, Alumwell Junior School quoted:
‘Behaviour for learning is developing well in Alumwell Junior with strategies introduced, reviewed and amended on a regular basis’.
Please contact either Martin Hawkes, Assistant Headteacher or Lee Cross, Headteacher, for further information around Team Teach Training.
