'Write Away Together' - an approach to improve writing

event 39

'Write Away Together' is a writing programme devised by Fischer Education Project Ltd.

This one day training event is targeted at teachers and teaching assistants working in partnership from primary schools where writing is highlighted as an area for improvement.

The training days will share the PRAISE, IMPROVE, PLAN model underpinning the 'Write Away Together' programme.

Participants will learn how adults, acting as regular one-to-one writing partners, can make a positive response to children's writing, helping them to learn how to improve their own writing by considering the impact on the reader.

Clear strategies for helping pupils to improve their own writing at word, sentence and text level will be outlined.

Teachers will gain an overview of the 'Write Away Together' model and be able to plan for implementing this in their own classes - and potentially across their whole school.

Teaching Assistants will be able to work with the class teacher to deliver the programme on a one-to-one basis with individual pupils.

FURTHER IN-SCHOOL SUPPORT/TRAINING CAN ALSO BE ARRANGED.

Working towards Investors in Pupils accreditation

event 33

These two sessions will support staff leading on Investors in Pupils as they work towards achieving the accreditation.

The programme offers schools a framework for involving pupils in decision making and developing responsibility and leadership in relation to their learning, behaviour, attendance, classroom management and induction. It is powerful in developing a positive ethos where pupils learn about how the school is run, and in turn, understand how they themselves can contribute to the running of the school. Pupils commit to common goals and teamwork – together with each other and with staff.

Investors in Pupils is an established national quality mark to recognise, develop and extend effective pupil voice and participation provision in schools and educational settings. It aims to build young people’s life skills, character and resilience. Using the Investors in Pupils framework as a school development tool increases pupil understanding and engagement, fosters good relations, pupil to pupil; pupil to adult, supports a positive whole school ethos as well as positively impacting on pupils’ emotional wellbeing.

event 81

This session is aimed at governors of schools with sixth forms and colleges.

The training will focus on the importance for governors of ensuring that Sixth Form students make good or outstanding progress. It gives them a good understanding of Alps, the Advanced Level Performance System, both in terms of using their national benchmarks to set aspirational targets for teachers and students and in terms of using the reports at the start of each academic year to evaluate student progress and school and subject performance.

In line with Raising Participation Rates (RPA) there is a duty upon all year 11 leavers to continue in learning until their 18th birthday, e.g. sixth form , FE college or apprenticeship. This session will look at the destination data available, including NEETS

To ensure the session is interactive it involves a case study using selected pages from an example Alps A level and AS level reports.

Governors may also find it useful to bring copies of their own school or colleges latest ALPS report.

This course addresses the 'Knowledge' and 'Skills' requirements as outlined in the Governor Competency Framework:
2B - Rigorous analysis of data - Everyone on the board
* the evidence base that data is derived from e.g. pupil attainment and progress data and how it is collected, quality assured and monitored across the organisation
* analyses and interprets data in order to evaluate performance of groups of pupils/students
* analyses and interprets progression and destination data to understand where young people are moving on to after leaving the organisation
* uses published data to understand better which areas of school performance need improvement and is able to identify any further data that is required
* uses published data to understand better which areas of school performance need improvement and is able to identify any further data that is required
* questions leaders on whether they are collecting the right data to inform their assessment and challenges appropriately when data collection is not adding value.
* challenges senior leaders to ensure that the collection of assessment data is purposeful, efficient and valid.
* reviews and analyses a broad range of information and data in order to spot trends and patterns
* uses an understanding of relevant data and information to present verbal and written responses to external scrutiny (e.g. inspectors/RSCs/EFA)

Careers, Guidance and Inspiration in Schools for Governors (CEIAG)

event 89

In the latest statutory guidance from the Department for Education published March 2015 ('Careers Guidance and Inspiration in Schools'), the government emphasises the role that high quality, independent careers guidance plays in helping pupils emerge from school more fully rounded and ready for the world of work.

The duty on schools, to secure independent careers guidance for all year 8-13 pupils, is intended to expand advice and guidance for young people so they are inspired and motivated to fulfil their potential.

Schools should have a strategy for the careers guidance they provide to young people, embedded within a clear framework linked to outcomes for pupils.

This session will examine the statutory duty in relation to careers guidance, key principles for good careers guidance and share good practice in relation to developing a school strategy for advice and guidance.

This event will take place at County Hall - 7.00pm - 9.00pm

Curriculum Challenge for Governors

event 65

The introduction of the reformed National Curriculum 2014 and assessment without levels have been major changes for schools and continue to be demanding. The content and challenges have increased demands for schools. The Government's intention that the National Curriculum be slimmed down so that it properly reflects the body of essential knowledge which all children should learn and does not absorb the overwhelming majority of teaching time in schools. In addition, under Leadership and Management, Ofsted judge the quality of curriculum and its impact on pupils. Progress across a wide range of subjects, not just English and Mathematics are judged as part of the inspection framework.

The training event helps prepare governors to understand the statutory content of the National Curriculum at Key Stages 1 and 2. In addition, governors will get the opportunity to gain skills in asking searching questions and using evidence to support and challenge leaders to ensure the curriculum is right for their school and pupils.

This course addresses the 'Knowledge' requirements as outlined in the Governor Competency Framework:
2A - Educational improvement - Everyone on the board
• the importance of a broad and balanced of the curriculum
• the rationale for the chosen curriculum and how this both promotes the ethos of the organisation and meets the needs of the pupils/students

Disadvantage Champion Network Meeting

event 16

Following the introduction of the 'ASPIRE Charter' during the academic year 2015-16, East Riding schools have committed to address the barriers to learning that financial disadvantage can bring and the effect that it can have on the attainment of each individual disadvantaged pupil. Within schools, Disadvantage Champions and Disadvantage Link Governors have been identified and are providing the leadership and work coordination needed to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. The Disadvantage Champion Network Meetings are designed to provide support and challenge to this ongoing work.

As the Ofsted Framework (launched in September 2015) increases the inspection emphasis on tracking the progress of the disadvantaged, accounting for the effective use of the pupil premium and evaluating the role played by leaders in doing this, these meetings aim to ensure that those with responsibility for raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils are fully up to date with the latest pedagogical developments, with contemporary research and with the current local and national picture. Meetings will be interactive and offer practical ideas for use in the classroom and in wider aspects of the leadership role. They will also provide a forum for sharing good practice and networking. Each meeting has totally new content and delegates are recommended to attend all meetings for maximum benefit.

Head teacher Autumn Seminar 2017

event 88

This event will take place in the morning, finishing with lunch.
Approx. timing 9-2 but this will be confirmed nearer the time.

Guest speaker: Sir Kevan Collins

Kevan has worked in public service for over 30 years and became the first EEF Chief Executive in October 2011, having previously been Chief Executive in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Prior to this role he led a distinguished career in education – starting off as a primary school teacher, leading the Primary Literacy Strategy as National Director, and then serving as Director of Children’s Services at Tower Hamlets. Kevan also gained international experience working in Mozambique and supporting the development of a national literacy initiative in the USA. He completed his doctorate focusing on literacy development at Leeds University in 2005 and is a visiting professor at the Institute of Education UCL. He was knighted in 2015 for services to education.

JULY 2017
Education Secretary Justine Greening announced the creation of an "evidence champion" who will make sure that decisions on improving schools in England are based on real evidence.

"We have a lot of evidence about what works in schools, but it's not spread within the school system," she said.

Sir Kevan Collins, chief executive of the Education Endowment Foundation, will be the first to take the role.

Ms Greening said her top priority would be to improve social mobility.

But, speaking at a Sutton Trust event in London, she said there would now be an "evidence champion" to make sure changes were informed by objective evidence.

'Social mobility emergency'

Ms Greening said the evidence champion would ensure more "value for money and impact".

"You can have some fantastic work and insights in a school in Exeter, but it won't necessarily get to a school in Newcastle," she said.

"We want to disseminate the best practice."

The role of expert opinion has sometimes been controversial in education.

During the debate over plans to reintroduce grammar schools, the government was challenged over whether it was refusing to accept the evidence of experts.

Former Education Secretary Michael Gove also prompted a debate, during the Brexit referendum campaign, with comments that "people have had enough of experts".

Ms Greening said the new "guiding mission" of the Department for Education would be addressing the lack of social mobility.

She said there was a "social mobility emergency" - a problem that in some respects had "gone backwards".

In particular, she warned of some parts of England with "entrenched disadvantage", where low skills and poor employment were found in a downward spiral alongside underachieving schools.

Ms Greening has previously announced 12 "opportunity areas", where attention will be focused on raising standards and encouraging better training and work opportunities.

These areas are Doncaster, Bradford, Fenland & East Cambridgeshire, Hastings, Ipswich, Stoke, Blackpool, Derby, Norwich, Oldham, Scarborough, and West Somerset.

Sir Kevan said his role would be to ensure the evidence of research was being applied.

"Let's start with what we know, rather than what we think we know," he said.

There had been much detailed work into the "blockages" in social mobility, said Sir Kevan, and this needed to be shared.

"It's another signal that we're being thoughtful and rigorous," he said. "Let's look at the evidence."

The Education Endowment Foundation was created to test ideas that would help to raise standards in disadvantaged areas

The course tutor is Taff Bowles (ERYC Educational Visits and Outdoor Learning Officer) who has taught in schools and outdoor education centres for over 25 years and been a member of 3 mountain rescue teams.
