The CfE in East Lothian Planning Ahead document for next session has now been completed and sent out to schools.
The teachers of schools in the Haddington cluster came together on the afternoon of the 10th January to share their progress with planning and assessment.
The afternoon involved a brief input from me, followed by three teachers from primary and secondary sharing their practice. Everyone then worked in mixed groups to share an summarise what was working well for them and what were the common issues. They then displayed these and had a chance to look at each others and provide feedback. The session concluded with teachers coming together as departments/faculties/schools to consider their approaches to planning and assessment.
You can view the presentations and outcomes from the afternoon below.
The LTS Area Advisor Team have begun putting together a blog aimed at practitioners in primary, ASN and early years settings.
Practitioners like to talk to other practitioners and they do this with increased confidence when what they are discussing is based on successful real life experience. To this end, a new blog is now available to support CfE in primary, ASN and early years settings. It has been set up for people who are working at the ‘chalk face’. Visit the blog to hear what other practitioners have been doing and see the links to other related support and guidance on the LTS website. The blog will be looking at ‘what could I do now and how might I do it’ in a range of areas.
Some East Lothian Schools have already been involved in sharing their practice…
Stoneyhill Primary School: Driving consistency of practice in CfE
Dunbar Primary School: Planning teaching with colleagues
Pencaitland Primary School: Building Confidence in Assessment and Moderation
Well done to those who’ve been involved. Check out the blog for more videos.
