NTG1010 New to Governance 1/2

Tuesday, 10th October 2017 6:00 pm -8:00 pm
£130 for both sessions

New to Governance

The course is a vital part of the induction of new school governors, the course covers the essential elements of the role of the governing board and of the governors that make up the board. The course acknowledges the need for all governors to be properly inducted and developed to ensure they possess the knowledge and skills required to perform their functions confidently and effectively.

The course is designed for not only new governors but governors who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills are very welcome. The sessions are interactive and activities use real examples to illustrate challenges that governors face.

The sessions will explore the key roles of the governing board as outlined in the current Governance Handbook; particular emphasis is placed on the three core functions of school governance;

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

The course will examine how these core functions relate to the everyday functioning of the school and its board of governors and the responsibilities of the board to the school.

Please note this course is in two parts. (2x2 hour sessions)

Our training will be facilitated by one of our NLGs (National Leader of Governance) - Trevor Kendrick.  You can read more about Trevor here: https://www.5wellstsa.org.uk/index.php/school-to-school/national-leaders-of-governance/17-trevor-kendrick

As you may be aware, the DfE are in the process of updating their School Data software and RaiseOnline will soon be replaced by ASP.

Quote from DfE website:

  • The Department for Education (DfE) are launching a new service, which will provide schools and other existing user groups with detailed performance analysis to support local school improvement as a replacement to RAISEonline. We hope to have this ready in late April/early May. The name of the new service will be announced as soon as confirmed.
  • The current RAISEonline service will be available until Monday 31 July 2017. This will allow users to familiarise themselves with the new service and provide feedback before the current one is taken offline.  
  • During this period of dual running we will continue to develop the new service and plan to release an updated version in July 2017. During this time, we will also seek your feedback through formal testing and user surveys which are built into the new service. 
  • Inspectors will continue to use the data available in the existing summary report and inspection dashboard to prepare for inspections, until 2017 datasets are released in the autumn term.

We have scheduled training from our expert facilitators to take you through the new system and ensure that you are comfortable with how it all works and where to find all of the data you, as a school, need.  We have built in a little leeway into our date to try to ensure that the training will coincide with the release of the 2017 data.

These sessions will fill very quickly so we are offering you the opportunity to book your slot now - if we have to change the date we will advise as quickly as possible.

TT0111 Times Tables with Fiona Goddard

Wednesday, 1st November 2017 9:30 am -12:30 pm
£65.00

 

NCETM Professional Development Accredited Lead

In response to the Government's 'Primary Assessment in England' consultation, it is their intention to introduce an online multiplication tables check to be taken by pupils at the end of year 4 from the 2019 to 2020 academic year.  To this end, we have asked Fiona Goddard from NCETM to put together a programme to enable us to address this change:

12 x 12

Each multiplication table has its own pattern and poses a different challenge to learners.

This half day course looks at the best ways to teach and learn times tables, offering practical strategies and ideas to help your pupils learn each times table and boost their confidence with multiplication.

A recurring theme across Mathematics teaching in primary schools is the lack of instant recall of times tables and multiplication. If this isn’t embedded early in KS2, by Year 4 for example, Year 6 teachers can find themselves with the additional challenge of developing instant recall that pupils should have been practising for 2 years.

The Government now expects children in Primary schools to be strong in their learning of times tables so that they can make good progress in maths.  It was announced by the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan that every pupil will be expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of primary school (3 January 2016).  As part of the government’s commitment to giving every child a quality education, all children will have their times tables checked in year 6 and this new testing will start from Spring 2019! This has been updated and schools will now be expected to administer the tests to their year 4 pupils from 2019-20 (Sept 2017).

What do we know so far…

  • National Curriculum expects pupils by the end of year 4 to ‘recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12’
  • Our current Year 2 pupils will sit the times table test in Year 4
  • the test is accessed online — in a bid to reduce teacher workload.
  • the test will cover times tables up to 12×12
  • the test will be timed and scored instantly
  • These checks are to “aid children’s fluency in mathematics”, a DfE press release said.

Pupils need to be able to recall any times tables answer within two or three seconds. That leaves no time for counting the way up to the answer from 2x, 3x, 4x and so on - the answer must pop out of the memory pretty much instantly. It sounds harsh but this level of "number fluency" is the ideal foundation for any child - so how do we get there?

Come and join us for half a day exploring different ways to teach and learn times tables.
