NACE training for local schools

On Tuesday staff from our schools and neighbouring schools in Windmill cluster attended a very informative session delivered by Barbara Firth from NACE, specialists in building provision for more able learners. Barbara covered many ways in which teachers can give opportunities for able learners to progress in the classroom, emphasising the value of encouraging collaboration between pupils and giving children opportunities to talk about their learning. Barbara left us with a number of initiatives to try out in school. We shall be forming a working party to trial more work and report back on its efficacy together.
