Service Description

New for 2024 is our Subject Leader Development programme, designed to encourage Peer Challenge & Support across schools and multi-academy trusts. Facilitated by our Associate Leader, Chris Jennings, this six-session programme is aimed at Subject Leaders in primary schools who are keen to provide, and receive, peer challenge and support with their curriculum plans. Chris was a successful Headteacher for over 27 years in Rotherham and Sheffield: this included time as an Executive Headteacher. He has a deep knowledge of curriculum design and school leadership at all levels. He was heavily involved in system leadership as a Beacon School Head and a National Leader of Education for 12 years and spent time as an Adviser and School Improvement Partner in Rotherham, responsible for assessment. Delegates are expected to attend all six sessions, at Rockingham Professional Development Centre from 13:00 - 15:30, in full to achieve maximum impact from the programme. Thursday, 12th September Friday, 11th October Tuesday, 12th November Day 4 and Day 5 will be two afternoons, to be organised by participants, where reciprocal visits take place to learning partner’s schools. On each afternoon delegates will take 45 minutes to examine the curriculum and identify the intended learning. They will then spend twenty-five minutes crafting questions to ask pupils from two different year groups in order to gain a clear understanding of whether the intended learning has actually landed. Next, together, participants will meet with groups of eight pupils from the selected year groups and pose the questions, noting the responses and answers. Each session should last 30 minutes. Finally, there will be thirty to discuss findings and agree next steps. Thursday, 6th March - an opportunity for each member of the group to feedback on what they have discovered, changes they have made and next steps. Senior leaders from participating schools will be invited. Cost: • Unlimited places available for those subscribing to RoSIS in full • One place per school for those accessing the Core Offer to RoSIS, additional places charged at £95 per person • £190 per person for others
