Teacher's training

At F&B we organsie our staff training into key sections: 

CPD Structure

  1. Pop Up
    1. To reflect on the previous CPD session, a success or challenge that occurred as a result. This may not be the week before session due to time to action any targets.
    2. To share information about a specific area/subject for 15 minutes – review, intro, pre-teach etc.
  2. Work Shop:
    1. A 10/15 minute practical or snap shot show case of area e.g. new form, how an intervention works, how a special day will work the following week
  3. Main Body:
    1. Delivery of core CPD session
    2. Apply and Problem Solve:
      1. Opportunity to apply, role play, link to own setting/circumstances
  4. Review/Reflect:
    1. Summarise steps 4 and 5 (TP and as a group). Note down actionable target(s) to share in the review session.
  5. AOB

Below is a small summary of a few of these sessioins:

Each year our staff members undergo First Aid training.  Some of them will do First Aid at work (6 hours) and some will do paediatric training (12 hours).  In 2016 16 members of staff undertook Defibrillator training.  This is now incorporated into our annual First Aid training programme.

 

This year we used Pegasus First Aid training and several members completed first aid at work.  Here is a picture showing us how to remove a lodged item from someone who is choking (previously called the Heimlich manoeuvre)

We were treated to a really inspiring Art inset by our Art Co-ordinator and Year 1 class teacher, Katie Westphal in February 2019.  Our teacher's picked up some great new techniques and have been trying them out in the classrooms with the children...
We have been learning yoga and relaxation techniques

Our Teachers and Assistants and Office staff have been learning how to use fire extinguishers and about fire safety in schools.  This will ensure that we are fully ready in the event of a fire to keep everyone safe.

We had a teacher's wellbeing session with Kate Atkinson in July 2017

We constantly strive to improve the experiences we give to children at F&B.  In order to do this effectively our Teachers are also learners.  Here they are learning new skills and games in cricket, during an inset session with Sporting Futures.  By understanding themselves how to stretch and challenge children during PE, they will become better equipped to produce exciting games to enrich children's learning.
