Session 1: Learned Helplessness (getting to know your learners)
Settling In. The sessions within this module take you through some top tips, ideas on getting to know your pupils and making sure that settling your most disadvantaged learners in to school includes sharing your high expectations
Session 2: An equity mindset (Equity-based ethos)
An equity-based ethos. The sessions in this module will develop your thinking around an equitable approach to many aspects of education and remind us all of the challenges our most disadvantaged learners face.
Session 3: Assessing equitably
We hope you start by watching the discussion with Roy Leighton, building on from ‘Simon’s story’ in Module 1. There’s a great discussion with primary and secondary leaders on equitable assessment
Session 4: Hard to reach schools
It’s a deliberately provocative title for a module packed full of great ideas for better engagement with parents, the community and of course learners and it starts with an inspiring case study from The John Frost School …
Session 5: Moving on, moving up
The sessions in Module 5 will get you thinking about the many guises of transition and how we can help our most disadvantaged learners to cope. With case studies and conversations with special guests, it’s packed full of research as well as very practical ideas.
Session 6: Taking the REINS (reflection, evaluation, impact, next steps)
All about reflection, evaluation, impact and next steps… or ‘taking the REINS’ as we’ve called it. In this module we take a wide-ranging look at REINS for learners and staff and a special guest appearance from Mark Finnis which we know you’re going to love.
Join the Challenging Education leaders at 6 virtual networking sessions to discuss the completion of your modules, your journey so far and have the opportunity to ask any questions.
