This half-day course is designed for subject leaders of primary geography and history who wish to explore ways of reviewing and presenting an overview/rationale for primary geography and history to help effectively capture curriculum intent, implementation and impact in these subject areas in preparation for the September 2019 inspection framework. This course will provide key subject-specific questions to enable rag rating of the current strengths and areas for development in the school curriculum. Delegates are invited to bring samples of pupils’ work. Please note: this course is designed as an introduction on how to review and health check an established geography and history curriculum, what to look for and typical pitfalls to avoid. New or current subject leaders who feel they would benefit from a broader single subject-based developmental day may find the full-day course, 'Essentials for new subject leaders' in the first half of the autumn term of more benefit.Essential Information
This session will update delegates on local and national developments for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). It will help delegates to be confident in understanding their school's statutory duties and provide practical support in enabling them to fulfil their leadership and management responsibilities. The session will include a range of short updates and also a more in-depth exploration of topical issues, to help delegates consider implications for their school.Essential Information
If SIMS is required to calculate Exam Performance Indicator (PI) data for summer 19, it will be necessary to setup and edit PI data in SIMS. This half-day course is being offered so that delegates are able to maintain their own school’s PI data remotely from our training room, with Data Management consultants on hand to provide guidance. There will be some formal training, however the majority of the time spent in the session will be for delegates to maintain their 2019 PI Data on their own school data and seek advice where needed.
