Disadvantage Champion Network Meeting

event 120

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.

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.

Effective Engagement with Stakeholders (for governors)

'the leaders’ and governors’ vision and ambition for the school and how these are communicated to staff, parents and pupils’

and

'how well leaders and governors engage with parents and other stakeholders and agencies to support all pupils’(Section 147).

In addition to this the Leadership and Management criteria states '‘Leaders and governors have a deep, accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness informed by the views of pupils, parents and staff. They use this to keep the school improving by focusing on the impact of their actions in key areas.’


This event will explore interventions, approaches and practices that are most effective in promoting stakeholder engagement.

Headteachers' Summer Term Leadership Seminar: creating a culture for learning

event 243

This is the last of our three Seminars planned by ERSIP for the current academic year, continuing our theme of “Creating a Culture for Learning”. This follows the first two successful events under this theme when we heard about our Research Schools initiative, from Tom Bennett (Behaviour Czar) and more lately from our Teaching School Alliances at Bridlington Spa about a wide range of relevant topics.

For our Summer Seminar we are extremely fortunate to have 2 very different but relevant and thought provoking speakers.

Firstly, Katrina Gueli, Senior HMI, Maintained Schools and Academies. Katrina is a qualified teacher and, before joining Ofsted, gained extensive school-based middle and senior leadership experience in a range of different schools. As a senior leader, her responsibilities included the improvement of teaching and learning, in particular, working closely with specific departments to raise achievement. Katrina also worked as a local authority adviser and accredited school improvement partner in both primary and secondary schools. Katrina has particular expertise in the development of teaching and learning, leadership and management and science. Whilst we recognise that headteachers will be aware of the new inspection framework, we are particularly interested in Katrina’s comments around Ofsted's wider perspective regarding the curriculum and supporting a culture for learning.

Secondly, Tom Sherrington will be delivering the second session of the seminar. After a career of over 30 years as a teacher and school leader, Tom is now working as a freelance consultant in schools around the United Kingdom and is in demand as a CPD provider and speaker. He writes the popular blog teacherhead.com having distinct and sometimes provocative views about a wide range of topics including assessment, behaviour management, teacher workload and work-life balance, teachers as researchers, the overhaul of MFL (relevant as we will also be hearing from Michael Loncaster about the MFL Project) and the co-construction of classes with pupils. He has also published a book on teaching called The Learning Rainforest. He will certainly help us to think “out of the box”.

Please register as soon as possible for this event by the 3rd of June.
