SCHOOL OF CREATIVITY BECOMES A TEACHING SCHOOL

9 February 2011

St Ambrose Barlow Roman Catholic High School, in Swinton, Salford, has become a Teaching School.

The school, currently a Creative Partnerships School of Creativity, will contribute towards teacher training, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and leadership development. It will also provide support for schools that are facing challenging circumstances such as those in an Ofsted category or that are below the new floor standards which applied from January 2011, and work to create a network of schools that work in partnership to deliver on these agendas.

Teaching schools have to demonstrate that they:

· Have a significant track record of successful and collaborative relationships with partner schools;

· Have an Ofsted rating of outstanding for overall effectiveness, teaching, learning and leadership and management;

· Show consistently high levels of pupil performance or continued improvement;

· Have a proven capacity within their school to provide support and development to other schools;

· Have demonstrated a strong contribution to the delivery of high quality initial teacher training, professional/leadership development and school-to-school support.

422 Comments

Recently, I visited one of our top public boys’ schools and sat in on a few lessons. I found exactly what I was expecting: old-fashioned teaching centred on knowledge instead of skills, with the teacher at the front and children at their desks; no group work nor games, just listening, responding and serious concentration. These teachers had not been moulded into what those of us in the state schools sector understand to be a good teacher.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/8294154/What-makes-a-good-teacher.html

What should be taught in our schools?

Those following the National Curriculum Review for primary and secondary schools in England will be interested in 2 events that we hosting in London during March.

Discussion & debate, 3rd March, London (FREE)

How will you respond to the Department for Education’s Call for Evidence as part of the National Curriculum Review?

Do you think we should move towards a fact-based curriculum within a limited range of subjects or build upon the achievements of progressive educators who are innovating within the existing curriculum?

A number of regional meetings are being established across England to bring people together to share and discuss their views and opinions on the Review to encourage collective or individual responses. An independent, collaborative Wiki by the community for the community is online now. Please take part.

LWF, supported by BESA & Penguin, are hosting a free discussion evening in London that presents differing perspectives that invite debate.

Guest speakers include Katharine Birbalsingh, Toby Young, Dr Ralph Townsend, Donald Clark, Dawn Hallybone & Tristram Shepard.

  • Appropriate metrics of evaluation lag behind the emergence of new scholarly forms of authoring, publishing, and researching
  • Economic pressures and new models of education are presenting unprecedented competition to traditional models of the university
  • Keeping pace with the rapid proliferation of information, software tools, and devices is challenging for students and teachers alike
