10 Sep New Beginnings
The long summer break over, we all returned to school last week looking forward to the new academic year. And there is indeed a great deal to look forward to: new classes and courses to teach, the History department has launched a new A level course, new science labs are in the process of being constructed and a new performing arts centre will be completed in April 2012. We have just embarked on our next five year development plan and our e-brochure-Inspiring Excellence provides a brief outline of some of our plans for the future. We have an exciting new blogs page to help us to communicate more effectively with parents, pupils and the wider community. We have also created a new Moodle VLE for student which we hope will more effectively facilitate online learning. On Tuesday and Wednesday next week I am going to the National College in Nottingham for the launch of the government’s Teaching Schools programme. We are really looking forward to working with our partner schools and extending and developing our work in relation to CPD and teacher training. The design and development phase which takes place over the course of the next 12 months will be an exciting time and in the TES Sarah Evans, Principal of King Edwards, along with seven other headteachers, talks about KEHS and the Teaching School programme and our vision for the future.
