Hi all – as a part of my TLR within my English department, I am leader for APP. At the moment, I have a clear policy in which staff ‘track’ 3 representative pupils in each KS3 class and use these students to moderate our assessment and to monitor gaps in our teaching.
Please could I ask, if you are involved in/ leading APP in your department – how does it work and what are the ideas behind it?
Would be grateful if you could share
The weather forecast has insisted, for days now, that we would recive heavy snow here in the Midlands.
And at last it is here! I am very lucky, as a teacher, because I know that I live close to school and if I had to get in to work, I could do the walk. I also know, that when the snow is heavy (like it is now – 4 hours on from the above picture) the school will be closed and I won’t have to take the risk.
Other people (non-teachers) always like to moan about this fact. But, they’re all missing a fundamental point… isn’t it a wonderful thing to allow children to have fun in the snow? To just be children?… Surely that’s what really matters.
