I am delighted to announce that I am now working for Achievement for All full time. I am aligned 100% to its charitable objects, and am in awe of the impact the Schools Programme is having in schools and academies through the country. Apart from the Anti-Bullying project as outlined below, I am extremely fortunate to be working with an amazing team which is developing an on-line training and staff development experience that captures the power and potential of the Achievement for All Schools Programme.
SCiP5 Education and Media will have to take a back seat for now, but, with Achievement for All’s blessing and support, I am still bookable to run INSET, speak at conferences and to continue campaigning to close the gap!
In partnership with Achievement for All 3As and Anti-Bullying Alliance
SCiP5 is working with Achievement for All 3As and Anti-Bullying Alliance on a national training and staff development strategy to reduce the incidence and impact of bullying on SEND well-being and achievement. A training and staff development programme has been conceived and written to encourages schools to explore the key issues, but in a unique and engaging way The training goes on to support schools to develop a bespoke programme of change that meets their own identified needs and context.
It acknowledges that every school is different, moving away from the more conventional “prescriptive” National Strategy approach to an “elective” one. The programme is open to all primary and secondary schools in the country, and runs until 2015.
“The day was incredibly useful and it was fantastic to be given resources that are so easy to access.” Sophie Orton, Head of Pupils and Personnel, Ravenshead CofE Primary School, Nottingham
