Code: ENG/19/346/P Effective support for English: local cluster session for teaching assistants

Highly effective teaching assistants can add real value to pupil's learning. As the Sutton Trust identified, investing in professional development for this group of practitioners makes the difference. This two-hour session will offer teaching assistants the opportunity to reflect on key aspects of the Primary English Curriculum and how best to support pupils with reading and writing both in the classroom and through guided group work. We will be delving into some subject knowledge as well as providing plenty of practical activities which can be used straight away back in the classroom.

Code: EAY/19/488/P Supporting smooth transitions briefing

As part of the HCC commissioned transition project, the Herts for Learning Early Years team are providing briefing sessions to share details of the project, the transition level of need pathway and provide each school with a copy of the transition toolkit. The overall focus of the project is to ensure a smooth transition for all children, including those at risk of underachievement.

The aim of the briefing is for early years practitioners working in school nursery and reception classes to receive information on the transition level of need pathway and tools developed as part of the project. It will be important that practitioners gain an understanding of how this can support early identification of those children with potential barriers to learning and help enable them to experience a smooth transition to school.

A transition toolkit will be provided for each school with a range of resources to support transition practice.

Code: DMS/20/126/A Using SIMS to manage SEN (on school data) (Cancelled)

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.
