Code: 19DMS/018A Using SIMS to manage SEN (on school data)

This course will enable delegates to fully utilise the functionality of SEN in SIMS to enable the effective and efficient use in relation to the SEND Code of Practice.

This course has been designed to allow delegates to access their own school SIMS database remotely from our training room, enabling the maximisation of the delegate’s time. During the training delegates will be able to start work putting in place customisation of SIMS to reflect the provisions in place for pupils at their own school.

Delegates will learn how to record SEN data efficiently in SIMS. Utilising the functionality of reviews, provisions and events, a comprehensive SEN record can be created for individual pupils. Data from SIMS can also be extracted into HCC standard forms and in reports for data analysis. Specialist reports and letters relating to the pupil can be linked to the pupils' record. Customisation of SIMS will support efficient working, enabling quick access to frequently used areas of SIMS and the display of data on the homepage.

Code: 19ENG/047P Spelling SOS Key Stage 2 Project (EVENT FULL)

The 2014 National Curriculum catapulted spelling at KS2 into the limelight, and the KS2 assessment framework documents have further intensified the focus on spelling over the last four years. With this in mind, schools have been grappling with – and will need to consider further – how to equip their pupils for this increased challenge, so that they are able to meet the expected standard at the end of KS2 with confidence.

This project has been designed to offer strategies that will have a swift and powerful impact on pupils’ spelling achievement. Following successful implementation of the project, the pupils will be on an improved trajectory towards EXS at the end of KS2; have a more positive relationship with spelling; be more enthusiastic, confident spellers with an increased understanding and knowledge of the spelling system.

The project will focus predominantly on the need to improve pupils’ current individual spelling errors and misconceptions. Accurate spelling is a key component of writing fluently; enabling pupils’ cognitive resources to be freed from focusing on spelling means it can then be redirected towards writing composition. Following this event a half-day consultancy visit will be arranged with an allocated adviser week commencing 7th October 2019.
