Another part of the English Curriculum Recovery is to provide tailored training opportunities for leaders and staff in the county's small schools.
The project will target classroom teaching and learning as well as strategic subject leadership. The aim of the project is to increase the knowledge, pedagogy and confidence of teachers to plan and teach across mixed age classes in both English and Maths throughout the school in order to facilitate positive progress, particularly in light of the disruption caused by Covid-19.
Following on from the English and Maths training delivered in Autumn 2019, our trained Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) will lead a series of termly cluster meetings in order to ensure embedded learning and sustained school improvement.
Schools will be clustered geographically to support future collaboration, with the meetings being held virtually via Zoom or Teams. Cluster meetings will be held termly (each long term) and schools can choose to engage in an English or a Maths cluster or both. Under normal circumstances, cluster meetings would be held during an afternoon and would run from 1pm – 4pm, on a mutually convenient date and hosted by one of the group member’s schools. However due to Covid-19, virtual meetings will be held at the end of the school day, to cause minimum disruption, from 3pm – 5pm.
