In this newsletter we share details of our Autumn term CPD offer. Please take a look below at the range of CPD on offer and contact us if you have any questions.
Primary Headteachers will probably already be aware of the CPH CPD Survey which closes on 12th October. Please do complete it as this is a fantastic opportunity for schools to communicate their needs to CPD providers like us. The survey last year provided us with useful information and we were able to programme professional learning that responded to your needs. For example the survey last year highlighted the need for more science provision and as a direct consequence The Kite TSA has proactively sought to create a partnership with the national Science Learning Partnership and we are delighted to tell you that we are now a Primary TSA Hub. Similarly the 'Math Mastery through Progression in Calculation' project was also in response to the CPH survey results. Thirty-six teachers from 12 different schools benefitted from this CPD and resources. One headteacher was so impressed by the course they sent us this message;
"Just wanted to let you know that my teachers came back from the Maths course hugely excited, motivated, positive, energised. Lots of very simple, practical ideas, great resources, great presenter. Really well done - the course will make a big difference here over time."
We look forward to receiving the results of the survey and endeavour to provide a rich and responsive offer which we will let you know about in due course. In the meantime we have undertaken our own analysis and would like to highlight a Primary Maths offer; Whole-school progression with fractions, decimals & percentages as well as Writing at Greater Depth in Year 6 and Writing at Greater Depth in Year 4 & 5 both with our partners Herts for Learning. Please reserve your places as quickly as possible as we are sure these courses will sell out fast. We also want to highlight a brilliant opportunity for professional development for Behaviour Management (Deputies, Heads, SENCOs, and teachers) with Pivotal Education.
If you or your school have any other CPD needs not mentioned on the survey please don't hesitate to get in touch and we will do all we can to accommodate.
With best wishes from Rae Snape (Headteacher/NLE and Lead of Kite TSA) and Suzie Young (Alliance Coordinator) and everyone in the Kite TSA
