Leading RE for the first time (Cancelled)
This course is for those teachers who have never lead on religious education (RE) before. We will evaluate the skills needed to be an effective subject leader. Using discussion, guidance and workshop activities, there will be a focus on leadership of the subject area, the statutory requirements for RE planning and resourcing, teaching and learning and strategies for raising standards of pupil attainment.
New RE subject leaders will formulate action planning and develop an RE policy which can be put into practice with colleagues.
Phonics: effective planning and teaching through ‘Letters and Sounds’ for NQTs in Early Years and Year 1
Designed to support NQTs and teachers new to Early Years or Key Stage 1.
Delegates will have the opportunity to both secure their own phonic subject knowledge as well as develop familiarity with the guidance for phonics teaching through exploration of the ‘Letters and Sounds’ publication.
Delegates will explore key strands of the phonics curriculum through practical approaches and hands-on activities, explore the relationship between speaking and listening and early phonological awareness, and explore useful strategies for assessment of phonics.
This essential workshop is part of a county-wide programme to introduce schools to the Hertfordshire SEND toolkit. This newly developed resource accompanies the Hertfordshire SEND Quality Offer and the SEND Benchmark & Planning Tool. Together this suite of materials provides schools with a vision, a self-evaluation framework and now has a toolkit providing a range of resources, tools and guidance to support the onward journey.
Assessment and moderation cluster for MFL – Barnwell Middle School (Cancelled)
This new forum is for language departments that want to validate their professional judgement in marking, enhance their moderation processes, and improve outcomes for their pupils. It will also provide an opportunity for delegates to compare and discuss different types of assessment used across a range of contexts and their impact. Each session will focus on a particular aspect of assessment, before moving on to live moderation of speaking and writing tasks, and will end with a summary of the lessons learned to improve outcomes for pupils, departments and schools.
