Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School

We are Golden and we SPARKLE

INSET Day - 24th Noveber 2023

We were very pleased to invite Kate Jones as a key note speaker for our shared INSET day with local Aspire Primary Schools.

Kate is an author on the subject of retrieval practice and talked to us about evidence based strategies to support our children knowing more and remembering more.


Teaching Assistant staff then attended 3 workshops focussed on:

-Supporting children with ASC and anxiety

-Challenge in Maths

-Supporting children in English

-Supporting children with complex and additional needs

-Supporting children to develop their communication and language



Then in the afternoon, Teachers met as year group teams across our 5 local schools to moderate writing and share judgements. They discussed next steps to support improving outcomes in writing for our children.

Thanks to all the speakers, facilitators and staff for supporting and engaging in our INSET. We aim that this professional development supports the improvement of outcomes for children who attend our schools.
