Primary

The Arthur Terry National Teaching School offers a bespoke programme of CPLD events for primary practitioners and leaders.  In addition to our cross phase ‘Leading Change’, ‘Good Practitioners’, ‘Advanced Practitioners’, ‘Gateway to Leadership’ and ‘Aspire to Senior Leadership’ programmes, we also offer a series of CPLD events focusing on priority areas in primary schools.  These events are open to all our Teaching Alliance schools and are facilitated by Outstanding practitioners who are specialists in their fields.

This year there are two offers for EYFS moderation. With some schools being Early Adopters of the New EYFS Framework, a moderation group for both the current and new EYFS Framework will run. Schools are welcome to attend both should they wish, even if they are not Early Adopters.
