Code: OPL/21/058 Strategic thinking for English Leaders: Supporting responsive planning and assessment in summer 2021 (PM)

The role of an English leader has been significantly challenging over the pandemic. It is widely acknowledged that middle leaders have, in the main, been restricted in access for supporting and monitoring teachers, due to the nature of Covid-19 restrictions. Whilst this cannot be helped, it is important that English leaders re-establish their vital role as soon as conditions allow. This course will support English leaders to re-establish both consistency and capacity in their role.

Code: OPL/20/098 Knowing the Standards in Years 3 and 4

While there is a huge amount of information and exemplification of the standards for the end of KS1 and KS2, there is far less guidance available for teachers of those crucial years in lower KS2 – and these are crucial years where really substantial learning takes place, underpinning all the achievements of upper KS2. Where schools get Years 3 and 4 right, the likelihood of improved outcomes in Year 6 is significantly increased. This 4-session course, running across the academic year 2020-21, aims to give teachers clarity about expectations and progression in Years 3 and 4 through a series of virtual CPD sessions delivered through Microsoft Teams.

Code: OPL/21/056 Getting Secondary-Ready in English

Preparing Year 6 pupils for the demands of secondary school is always important, and never more so than for the class of 2021. When pupils make the transition to secondary school, the range of lessons in different subjects and the expectations of reading and writing for very different purposes in different disciplines can be a challenge. This half-day virtual CPD event will support Year 6 teachers in getting pupils ready to meet that challenge.
