Exciting Opportunity for Primary Schools to Participate in EEF Maths Trial

Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub is recruiting 120 primary schools to take part in an efficacy trial sponsored by the Education Endowment Foundation. This will be trialled in Year 5 classes and will run for one school year starting in September 2018.  This is an exciting opportunity for schools in our region to receive training and implement the Same Day Intervention approach. 

Same Day Intervention is an approach to teaching in which teachers restructure their maths lessons with the aim to ensure all children reach a certain level of understanding by the end of the day, preventing an achievement gap from forming.

Booking has now opened for this year’s Pathways to Leadership programme. This is a programme aimed at recently qualified teachers who are secure in their teaching practice and are ready to explore excellence in teaching and a first step into leading others. This year the programme will be held in Leicester (17th November 2017 and 8th March 2018) and Derbyshire (21st November 2017 and 12th March 2018). More information attached.

We are looking for a keynote speaker for this programme to talk about work life balance and resilience for 45 minutes (to discuss the related science and psychology, and to offer practical ideas to support RQTs as they progress in their career). Have you seen a speaker on this topic that you could recommend? If so, please email your suggestion to hayley.carter@sdsa.net Many thanks in anticipation.
