Code: FSS/20/176/A School Financial Value Standard (SFVS) Webinar

Are you aware the Schools Financial Value Standard ( SFVS) 19-20 has changed? It is important that you are prepared for these changes not only from the perspective of compliance but also from using it as a framework for good financial management in schools.

“The schools financial value standard helps to provide schools with assurance that they are meeting the basic standards necessary to achieve a good level of financial health and resource management”, 2019-20 Schools financial value standard, Gov.uk

To support Governors and leaders of schools maintained by Hertfordshire County Council with the new SFVS, Herts for Learning has produced a pre-recorded webinar which outlines the changes to the SFVS for 19/20. The webinar, to be published during November, will help delegates understand the focus of the SFVS and its value in helping schools to understand their financial position.

This will be followed in January by four live Q & A webinar sessions. By attending one of these live sessions, delegates will learn more about the new SFVS 2019-20 and have an opportunity to ask further questions.

Code: DMS/20/115/A SIMS Attendance Reporting (on school data)

This course is designed to ensure schools make the most of the valuable management information that has been collected as part of routine attendance registration. Attendance and punctuality is now part of the new Ofsted inspection framework, under the behaviour and safety key judgements. The course will enable participants to produce key attendance information for vulnerable groups as well as being able to track pupils with low attendance and persistent absentees. This information can be used to monitor and ultimately improve pupil achievement, based on the reasonable assumption that if a pupil is not attending school, they will be at a considerable disadvantage.

Code: ASS/19/224/P Assessing and securing greater depth in Year 6 writing

This highly regarded full-day course is delivered jointly by the English and Assessment teams, and will focus on what ‘working at great depth’ in Year 6 could look like for writing in the Year 6 classroom and how pupils can be supported to achieve this higher standard through the use of quality texts and careful lesson design.

Using the Teacher Assessment Framework in conjunction with writing exemplars, delegates will explore the requirements for greater depth and provide detailed guidance on the sorts of evidence that would support a judgement at this standard. A range of teaching approaches, writing opportunities and suitable texts to support pupils in achieving the greater depth measure will be shared. Developing pupils as confident, mature writers - both in technical and authorial terms - will underpin the course content.

Code: 19MAT/047P Assessing pupil outcomes in the mathematics curriculum

Are the assessment systems in school effective at assessing learning? This sounds a silly question, but it is an uncomfortable truth that often, a school’s assessment systems are seen as a way of monitoring the effectiveness of teaching and learning rather than informing teachers of how well pupils are learning and where there are gaps to be filled.

This one-day course for subject and senior leaders will consider best practice in the use of assessment to enable mathematical learning. During the day, leaders will have the chance to reflect on the following; - what does making progress in mathematics mean? - what can and should be assessed? - how should we assess? - how does our mathematics curriculum support assessment? - how and when should we feedback to our learners?

This course is the second in a series of one-day courses. School may choose to attend one, two or all three, as part of their mathematics curriculum development work. Each course is bookable separately. Attending all three will give leaders a chance to deeply consider their mathematics curriculum.

Code: MAT/19/321/P Enabling teaching assistants to support and develop pupils’ resilience and reasoning in mathematics - afternoon session

Many pupils lack resilience in mathematics. Teaching assistants can make a real difference to improve this.

This brand-new, two-hour practical session will support TAs to develop pupils’ resilience in mathematics.

Delegates will leave with a range of practical strategies that they can use to:
• support problem-solving
• teach pupils to sustain their focus when asked to think for themselves
• improve pupil’s confidence and understanding of fractions.

The local cluster training is repeated in morning and afternoon sessions so as many TAs as possible can benefit.
