The theme for the D&SL Conference will be Monitoring of Teaching & Learning. Our main speaker will be Justine Hocking who will be looking at this from an Inspector’s point of view.
Justine spoke at the PNM in September 2018 on the latest Ofsted news which was very well received by the headteachers so you should have a very informative session!
The WGSP Peer Review Programme
Huw Evans, Realising Learning
The WGSP Peer Review programme is a professionally led peer reviewed, focused on teaching and learning. It involves head teachers and senior leaders, led by an independent education consultant, visiting other schools to evaluate the quality of education. It is collaborative in its approach and encourages the sharing of good practice in an open and honest manner to enhance the rigour of school self-evaluation. The reviews are about having a dialogue with the school and the Review group works as a team in a supportive manner.
After the review, schools should have systems in place to embed what has been learnt back into the practice at their schools. This can be in many different forms depending on the findings of the review but with the key aim to improve pupil outcomes.
Session 1 – For all schools participating in the Programme
Working together: Setting protocols, expectations and criteria for working together; Planning a focus; Starting points (Looking at data; Looking at the schools’ SEF; Looking at the schools’ SDP)
Session 2 – For those schools participating in the programme (Max. 6 schools on these dates)
Collecting evidence – In the classroom; From books and planning; Pupil voice
The Peer Review in Action – For those schools participating in the programme
Working alongside the reviewers in each others’ schools to coach and support either with or without Huw’s support (additional cost) to be agreed by participating school

- Do you struggle to produce effective grant applications?
- Do you always miss out on funding which would benefit your school?
- Do you ever wonder how some schools just seem to have the knack in obtaining funding but your applications don’t quite hit the mark?
This workshop will cover:
- Different types/sources of funding available to schools
- Matching projects to funding sources
- How to fill in different types of applications
- General tips and things to avoid
- Going through examples of bids
The session will be led by Kevin Howie from Spirit Education Services who, before he was a headteacher, was a Community Development Manager in several schools. Kevin was responsible for developing sustainable partnerships that enriched the curriculum and learning opportunities. A major part of this was in seeking funding from partners or organisations such as Awards for All, DFID, British Council, charities and trusts.
