Autumn 2013

Thank you to everyone who attended today’s Autumn Conference. We had 100 delegates attend the day. The feedback has been incredibly positive.

Chris Quigley was our presenter for the day. The theme for his presentation was ‘Clarity and Creativity in the New National Curriculum’. Here is a very brief summary of our learning.

The legalities

The statutory requirements were explained and some of the myths surrounding the curriculum were explained.

Curriculum Drivers

Chris talked a lot about the drivers that will make your schools’ curriculum unique.

The content

The content of the curriculum was shared and ideas for how to make lessons exciting were described.

Planning and Assessment

Chris shared strategies for planning and assessing the curriculum.

Every delegate received copies of the presentation shared today. These will be very useful for all.

Delegates came away enthused by the presentation. Here are just some of the comments people made:

“Lots of food for thought and discussion points to take back to school.”

“Very good and inspiring.”

“Lots of real ideas to take back to school.”

“Massively useful”

We would like to thank our sponsors today: WMS, The Teacher App, MGL and Lighthouse Financial Advice for helping to make the day a success. Also, thank you to Cranage Hall for hosting the event.
