English Outdoors
Limited Capacity filling up

A session packed with practical, short and simple ideas that are based on curricular priorities in Primary school. Coming from a perspective of “don’t do more, do different”, we will practically experience lessons that any teacher can lead in any school grounds. These lessons are aimed at a whole class curricular learning, using concrete, grass, trees and buildings and require not special resources, training or time to deliver. We know that outdoors is more engaging and more memorable – and we will help you raise attainment through making use of this. Every attendee will go away with a pack of lesson ideas and links to more resources.

The meeting place for this session is the Core Cafe - https://www.edenproject.com/visit/whats-here/food-and-drink/core-cafe. The trainer Mike will meet you here and guide you to the outdoor area being used for the session.

Developing Self Awareness to Promote Learning: A Personal Perspective.
Limited Capacity seats available

John Simpson is a 32 year old man with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition. He is an experienced public speaker, having spent over ten years presenting to conferences and delivering training sessions. During his career, he has worked in a residential service for adults with a diagnosis of ASC, as an Independent Visitor in an autism specific school, and served a term as a self-advocate member of the National Autism Programme Board between 2010 and 2015.  Last year, he graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BA in Political Science.

John’s presentation will describe and analyse the challenges he faced at school, when he had no diagnosis, and how the process of learning about his condition, and understanding himself as an adult, meant that he had a totally different experience when he returned to education as a mature student. Self-awareness was particularly important in helping him to understand and explain what support and adjustments he needed to welfare and academic staff at university. He will use this successful Higher Education experience as a basis to explain to staff how to create autism friendly environments for the students they’re teaching, and also to help children develop self-awareness and advocate for their own needs.

The professional imperative: from big picture to detail
Limited Capacity seats available

Being caught up in the complex world of the day to day and the endless change of national policy can leave people wondering which way they should be facing and how they keep so many ‘stakeholders’ satisfied.
The ‘stakeholders’ that matter most are the children and young people in our schools.

This session will explore briefly the complex world of schooling from policy to practice. There will be an insight into the latest shenanigans of central government and the challenge of keeping the inspection wolf from the door. Couple this with the changing society and the complexity of the children’s lives and we find a recognition of the current imperatives with which school leadership lives.

This will be balanced with a consideration of how we make learning that is irresistible? What can we do to ensure that children make progress through worthwhile and engaging activity? How can children be taught to be proficient, to master concepts, ideas and skills? How do articulate a broad and balanced curriculum with real substance?

These are the sorts of questions we will address in this session as we go from big picture to detail in considering leadership approaches that will focus upon learning and how we can help teachers to get the best of it.

The session will be fast paced with short talks, video extracts and group discussion. It is hoped that it will be worthwhile, thought provoking, practicable and enjoyable.

The relational impact of teachers on pupils – exploring projection and transference in the class room
Limited Capacity filling up

When a pupil is doing well or not doing well we might often create a good understanding of this based on the pupils context; they are motivated, they have good parent support, they have high aspirations, they have a clear ambition.

We also know that the quality of the relationship between pupil and teacher can have significant impact on motivation, aspiration, ambition and commitment to learning.

In education our reflective practice can sometimes focus on educational process and interventions. In this workshop we are going to pause and reflect on how the ’human being’ within the teacher might impact the quality of relationship with Pupils and therefore the quality of their learning.

We will explore how might a teachers aspirations, motivations, values, frustrations, disappointments and own history impact the learning of those they are working with.

Lazy Teaching : how you can work less, but the children work more
Limited Capacity seats available

Find out more about how to be the best lazy, but outstanding, teacher you can be.  The Lazy Way is a philosophy that shifts the emphasis from teaching to learning, as well as shifting the workload from the teacher to the students. The act of being lazy (and, as you know, teaching is in no small part an act) is actually masking your work by setting up highly personalised, creative learning experiences that progress students’ learning without them always noticing. And that is an act all of our classrooms would benefit from.
