Lesley Guy, the Deputy Head at Widey Court Primary, led a workshop on the effective use of Pupil Premium funding and spoke on closing the attainment-gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers; along with sharing strategies to support children and families.
The conference themes were: school improvement, pupil progress and improving professional practice. Workshops covered Primary School PE, teaching children from ethnic minority backgrounds and improving mathematics. The day ended with a networking dinner.
New teachers had the opportunity to reflect and discuss best-practice and were given resources and access to online materials to help with professional development after qualification. The University of St Mark & St John launched its NQT Charter, which outlines the support teacher graduates can expect from the University.
