An 8 o’clock meeting this morning. I am given the reins of a new project: it’s time to make Teaching & Learning (or Learning & Teaching – whichever way you choose to pitch it) a central focus of our INSETs and staff-led CPD over the next 18 months. Having made my interest & enthusiasm clear since being appointed at the school (I’m in my 3rd year), I am thrilled to be handed this opportunity and am extremely excited. I have loads of ideas bouncing around and can hardly wait to head to Southampton for the T&L Takeover day next month. I’d also like to try and fit in a couple of school visits between now and half term if possible, to see some other models in action – anyone fancy a well-behaved and keen-to-learn visitor?
I have to launch things at our next staff meeting and have been invited to look for a speaker who can come in and enthuse us about a teaching & learning focus.
So, if you were in my shoes, where would you begin?
