The focus of this workshop is to introduce investigative mathematics with resources which can be readily used for pupils in the classroom. We hope pupils will develop their high level problem solving skills. For example, pupils will learn that a scale factor in mathematics can be used and applied to working out ingredients for making mince pies.
This year the Royal Opera House Bridge are keen to support activity that will enable organisations to make significant progress in the way cultural education is embedded and valued.
As a result, they anticipate all partners seeking co-investment will require a minimum of £5,000
investment from ROH Bridge for activity that has a total budget of £10,000 or more.
Applications are welcomed that demonstrate strong partnership working across the full range of
cultural, education and local authority sectors.

This ‘Teach Meet’ is being funded by an SEN grant obtained by SETSA. It is an exciting opportunity for all schools in the area to develop their SEN provision without any cost!
The purpose of this ‘Teach Meet’ is to pull different SEN expertise together to formulate a number of twilight training sessions that will be run by the respective special schools in the area. The ‘Teach Meet’ will showcase the different areas of expertise that currently exist in Southend and will offer all schools an opportunity to participate in a number of twilight training sessions that will be funded by this project. In addition staff will have an opportunity to visit the participating schools during their working day to observe and participate in different classes.
Every school in the area is invited to send one appropriate representative to the meeting.

This programme will enable existing and aspiring leaders to consider the place of mentor-coaching in schools and give you time to think through the practical application of your learning for your school context. You will learn about the theory and research that underpins mentor-coaching and what makes this such a powerful tool for school improvement.
You will be able to explore the differences and definitions around mentoring and coaching and the key skills and competencies associated with this approach. You will have a chance to apply your skills working in triads and in between days two and three you will be expected to apply some of the practice in your school.
The programme is recommended for existing and aspiring senior and middle leaders and will cover:
