Mind the Gap – Understanding what a child needs and how to support them is key
22nd September | 3:30pm | Webinar
By choosing key documents and online reporting, we will explore how you can best track attainment and progress for individual children, groups and the whole class. Reading is notoriously challenging to accurately assess – we believe we can help!
Back to school, the first month
30th September | 12.30pm | Webinar
The first in a series of ongoing monthly MAT Chat webinars, this webinar will explore the experiences of different MAT-based senior leaders on their arrival back to school the academic year after school closures due to Covid-19. Guests will discuss how successful the transition back to school has been across their MAT. Additionally, guests will share what the strategies they will implement to continue to support both students and staff going forward.
‘Closing the gap’
21st October | 3.30pm | Webinar
The second in a series of ongoing monthly MAT Chat webinars. This month’s topic ‘Closing the Gap’ will invite guests from the Academy/MAT sector to discuss how they’ve addressed the attainment gap for those pupils who’ve lost the most learning progress throughout the year of school closures due to Covid-19. The webinar will concentrate on assessment, data and how the guests intend to utilise the critical data supplied form their staff’s evaluations. Guests will also be invited to explain how Renaissance Star Reading data has bolstered the detection and assistance of pupils whose growth has considerably fallen off throughout the preceding academic year due to school closures. An opportunity to hear practical tips and suggestions from leaders’ own experiences of the new academic year so far.
