Money Matters with NatWest & RBS
The Trust is working with NatWest to support Trust schools with the delivery of financial education.
MoneySense is a free resource that gives teachers the opportunity to take pupils on a financial journey from year 7 through to year 13, or enhance the lessons already in place. Once registered online, the MoneySense website gives teachers access to a variety of stimulating materials to keep students interested, a student progress tracking system, teachers notes and curriculum links.
In addition to the MoneySense resource, teachers of pupils aged seven to eleven can also access Pocket Money. This online financial education programme has been developed specifically for primary schools and has been designed to make it easy and fun for teachers to deliver engaging lessons on the important subject of money management.
Susan Jenkins, MoneySense & Community Engagement Coach for the North said “My role as the Regional Coach is to work with you and your colleagues to make sure that all pupils receive some financial education every year, working towards the changes in the national curriculum that are due to take place in Sept 2014.”
Teaching and Learning Residential Conference
The Trust is working in partnership with the Trust Teaching School, Whitley Bay High School, to sponsor Secondary School teachers with between 2 & 4 years experience to attend a residential conference designed to build leadership potential and develop the ability to deliver outstanding lessons. For information on the course content please click here.
The conference will take place on Friday 21st commencing at 5pm & Saturday 22nd June closing at 12.30pm at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel. The cost of the conference is £250 per delegate (twin room) or £300 per delegate (single room). Two delegates from the same school sharing a twin room costs £400.
In order to support the programme and encourage participation the Trust is making available up to £150 to each Trust school to cover half the course fees for one delegate per school.
Primary Maths Lead Teacher Update
The Trust is supporting the development of a training programme for 15 maths lead teachers in conjunction with the National Centre of Excellence for Teaching Mathematics (NCETM).
The programme will begin in the autumn term and will run until early summer. It also includes a two day residential. In between training sessions, lead teachers will carry out research and development tasks in school in collaboration with other teachers. For more information please click here.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the Trust to develop our own cohort of NCETM trained Maths Lead teachers, who will have opportunities to work alongside the local authority to provide the very best support throughout our schools.
