Building Language – Learning Environments for Disadvantaged Pupils
Communication is central to the whole curriculum. Pupils need be able to communicate in order to develop as individuals; to express themselves socially and emotionally and to engage with others through both verbal and written communication. Session 1 This workshop explores practical ways of developing children and young people’s spoken language to strengthen understanding; expanding vocabulary and supporting pupils to verbalise concepts. Session 2 This workshop equips participants with the knowledge and strategies needed to inspire writing; to use writing as a vehicle for communication, connection and creativity.

Phonics Session 1: Training for Key Stage One Teachers in the Teaching of Phonics Including for Those Children with Dyslexia
First Session - Run by Sharon Paddock and Gemma England This is the first of two sessions which reference the same elements but with slightly changing emphasis. The first session explores emerging phonological awareness and the knowledge and development of phonics, reviews schemes and programmes. It is particularly relevant to teachers new to the teaching of phonics in reception and year 1; the second session will be especially important for teachers who will administer the phonics screening test. Decide which of the sessions most meets your requirements ~ there will be no need to attend both sessions unless you feel it will be useful to revisit some of the material.

Preparing Pupils for the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) and Beyond - Primary
From June 2020, all pupils at the end of year 4 in England will take an online multiplication tables check (MTC). The national curriculum specifies that pupils at this stage should be able to recall the multiplication tables up to and including 12x12. For a pupil to receive a high score in mathematics at the end of year six, not only do they need to know their multiplication tables but they also need to be able to skilfully use them. The progression of the concepts of multiplication and division will be discussed and explored along with variation, flexibility and the four properties of multiplication, which is key in supporting a pupil in achieving a high score, in mathematics, at year six. Part of the day will also look at how to forward plan across lower key stage two, as well as looking at suggested non-negotiables for years one to four, in order to get your pupils ready for the tests, so to avoid last minute rush.

Bexley Education Support Service Brochure 19-20 We are delighted to present our new support offer for 2019-20, and as you browse through the brochure, I trust many of you will recognise that this is an offer that has been built with you, reflecting what you have indicated is needed and drawing in partner expertise to ensure that you can access high quality support locally. We continue to operate within a national educational landscape which reflects that society faces significant challenges and a pace of change that is unprecedented. My team want to stand alongside you to meet our shared ambition that all children will thrive now and in the future. The partnership approach that you requested has shaped the journey whilst developing the offer. We asked Heads and MAT leaders what you needed and where you felt there were gaps in what was available. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the head teachers and multi-academy trust leaders who have given their time to support this work. You told us that recruitment remains a challenge and the offer anticipates the early career framework for teachers as well as providing on-going opportunities for developing all teachers and leaders, drawing on the Bexley Teaching School Alliance expertise. We are delighted to work with nationally renowned leaders and organisations, with elements of the offer representing cutting edge research, ideas and thought leadership. There are some potential solutions to local challenges; we are pleased to be able to offer the SENCo accreditation locally as well as work that responds to both current inspection themes and recognises the implications of the draft framework. Perhaps most importantly, I would like to draw your attention to our values as these demonstrate how Bexley Education Support Service seeks to complement the development of an exceptional local education system. Our intention is to be a niche provider of school improvement support because of our approach to partnership working. I am confident that you will see over the following pages an enhanced core offer to schools; and if you are a Bexley school, I look forward to outlining in the summer term how the offer connects to our new school improvement model. Yours faithfully, Lauren Ovenden Head of Strategic Education Partnership and School and College Improvement
