Presentation Title:
Diversity in the Curriculum and the Power of Actioning Student Voice
Details:
I will talk about the importance and need to audit our curriculum, lessons and whole school approach in order to ensure they reflect the students and prepare them for a diverse global future. One of the main principles I will discuss is the power of using student voice on diversity which is then actioned and actively used to help frame curriculum planning by staff. I will draw on my own experience of doing this whilst also providing my top tips and short, medium and long term ideas to implement this.

Social and Emotional Learning

This workshop will show participants what we mean by Social and Emotional Learning and how we can develop it in schools. We will identify how to focus on the whole school environment, culture and aims of the school and the impact these have on the SEL of students.

Presentation Title:
The Aims of Education and why re-thinking these matters now more than ever
Details:
The aims of education are far from obvious, even though they are often assumed to be so. They have changed over the years, reflecting the prevailing ideologies and priorities of the time. These aims, whether explicit or implicit, inevitably determine the shape education takes and its resultant adequacy or inadequacy in meeting the needs of individuals and society. Currently, our education system is creaking, in large part because it is the product of the aims and ideals of an age that has now passed. We will not adequately craft an education fit for the 21st century unless we first re-visit and re-think what we are trying to achieve. This session will address this question as well as suggesting some possible answers and a route map for helping leaders and teachers do the same.

Effective CPD: Growing Professional Learning Communities
Details:
We spend so much time, energy  and money investing in our staff, but if it is not making a big enough difference to school improvement or to pupil achievement, then what is the point?  One  approach to effective CPD is through the creation of professional learning communities that grow teacher capability over time.  These highly knowledgeable groups share your load, lead professional development with you and align your staff.   All of which enables distributive leadership, retention of staff and above all desired outcomes for pupils.  Easier than you think and better than you would expect.
