Developing Teaching

Year 6 Forum

The Year 6 Forum is designed to support Year 6 teachers throughout the academic year. The sessions will be facilitated by Cassie de Gilbert (Carlton Junior Academy) along with guest presenters providing specialist input in specific areas. The forum will offer a valuable opportunity to be part of a mutually supportive group and to network at key points during the year.

Primary 'Move On Up'

Move On Up is a highly successful and valued programme which aims to empower teachers to deliver high quality  lessons more consistently, giving them the motivation, confidence and skills to be the best teacher they can be. The programme is proven to work best for teachers who have the capacity to reflect upon and improve their own practice.

We provide the support of outstanding facilitators, observation of excellent classroom practice, research materials, and practical resources which prompt sustainable change. There is a clear focus on the key principles which underpin effective teaching to improve student outcomes, alongside the development of sustainable improvement.

Who is it for?

Delegates may already be good practitioners who want to move their teaching on to the next level, or they may be less confident practitioners who are in need of guidance and support to improve their practice. The programme has proven highly successful with a wide range of teachers at varying stages of their career from NQT onwards.

Participants will:

  • Receive guided instruction on how to fine tune key areas of Teaching and Learning such as: - the expert’s classroom - explaining - questioning - differentiation - modelling - practice - feedback
  • Observe outstanding practitioners in their classrooms
  • Complete gap tasks between sessions
  • Reflect upon and discuss their current practice in order to develop and improve their effectiveness in the classroom
  • Receive practical advice on how to improve
  • Read and research the theory behind the key elements of the programme
  • Have access to mentoring by a middle/senior leader in their own school between sessions
  • Complete a ‘teaching challenge’ which demonstrates the progress made in one or more of the key areas

Primary 'TeachMeet'

A TeachMeet event involves a series of quick-fire presentations on a range of teaching and learning activities and ideas, each lasting for 3 or 5 minutes. Some people choose to just come and watch, others choose to present an idea.

Everyone leaves with loads of great ideas having met with lots of people from other schools in the area. It’s an event with a real buzz.
