LFTSA Newsletter Spring 2017

Dear Colleague,

This term seems to have flown by and I know you are focussing hard on the build up to those SATs in May! Good luck to you all and I trust all your hard work and commitment will pay off.

As usual, this has been a busy and successful term for Luton First Teaching School Alliance; we have continued to offer high quality CPD for teachers and leaders whilst being at the heart of some innovative work, in and beyond Luton. Our work with the Bell Foundation goes from strength to strength and was recognised when an article outlining our partnership progress was published in the March ‘East of England’ Teaching Schools’ newsletter. This prompted a number of other Teaching Schools to get in touch to find out more about what we are doing and seeing if they could get involved. We are in the process of training up facilitators of our own, badged and quality assured by the Bell Foundation and should very soon be able to run programmes
using our own alliance colleagues.

In partnership with The Chiltern TSA, we have continued to lead on the ‘Aspiring Heads’ programme and a number of you have taken part; if you are keen to get involved in the delivery of a session, please contact Tony; he would be delighted to have a conversation about how best to deploy your expertise.
We have booked Chris Quigley; a nationally recognised speaker for a ‘Teaching Assistant’ conference which will take place on June 14th. We have asked him to speak on ‘Mindfulness in the Classroom!’ This will be at The Auction House - more details to follow but put the date in your school diary.
