Lizzie - are you are a 'tweeter' I find the twitter network is an amazing source of inspiration for subject and whole school ideas - the best free professional development there and it is constant!
General Discussion / Promotion question
« Last post by lizzie1 on November 09, 2016, 06:50:52 PM »
Hello, this is not geography related but I hope that the wise people on here can help me! I don't want this to sound like I can't do the job I'm applying for so I hope it doesn't come across like that!
We are an excellent school (independent) and our only area highlighted at our recent inspection was more consistency of teaching. I know we also need to improve use of IT. My question is, where do people find new ideas and initiatives that might suit their school or is it best to not suggest new initiatives now and let what we already have embed? I am quite confident with introducing new geography topics and teaching styles etc, it's the whole school initiatives that come from the top down that I want to get a handle on! I hope this makes sense and I've explained myself ????
General Discussion / Final opportunity for your school to get £3,375+ of funding

Does your school take part in the Quality Mark or Connecting Classrooms?

Then you are ideally placed to nominate your school to receive the funding, training, resources and support provided by the Global Learning Programme (GLP) to help you become a GLP Expert Centre. Being a GLP Expert Centre would help you build on your school’s existing work with these initiatives, enhance your own lessons and enable you to share your learning with a network of other teachers.

General Discussion / Have you been affected by Schools Worldwide failure?
« Last post by Adrian_Ferraro on November 07, 2016, 12:56:14 PM »
Last week, the tour operator Schools Worldwide ceased to trade with immediate affect.

If you have been affected by the company's failure - either with future trips already booked or potential quotes in the pipeline - please get in touch with us at the School Travel Consultancy ( or 01392 660056). The school expedition community is a small one with only a handful of companies arranging quality overseas expeditions. We will do our best to honour what you've already been offered and fulfill any expedition programmes that may already be under way.
