Elmhurst staff benefit from group-wide meetings

Elmhurst School for Boys

27th February 2014

Staff from Elmhurst School have enjoyed participating in Cluster Meetings this term, with other UK schools within the Bellevue Education group.

Group meetings have already taken place for Curriculum Leaders, Heads of Early Years, Heads of Pastoral Care and English and Maths co-ordinators, helping staff at each of Bellevue Education’s nine UK schools to share best practice in specific elements of teaching and learning.

Natalie Wilks, Year 2 Class Teacher and Head of PSHCE at Elmhurst, recently attended the Pastoral Leaders Cluster Meeting.

“The Pastoral Leaders meeting gave me a great opportunity to meet with other teachers from Bellevue schools with a range of pastoral and teaching experience. I particularly enjoyed discussing and sharing ideas about current practice with regards to mentoring, Key Stage transitions and tracking behaviour, which I plan to pass on to my colleagues to further develop our current pastoral care. It was a very useful and productive session.”

Group meetings will continue throughout the year, allowing Heads of Departments, Subject Leaders and School Office staff to maintain regular contact with one another and to discuss new teaching frameworks and assessment practices, and to share resources.

Laura Collinson, Bellevue Education's Curriculum Co-ordinator, said “I am really excited that these meetings are up and running and the response has been very positive and encouraging. The purpose of the meetings is to develop networks between schools, allowing for improvement of different areas of provision. It has been a pleasure to have taken part in these meetings to see how positive, productive and beneficial the discussions have been.”
