Our local Curriculum Hubs
We work closely with all local curriculum Hubs to link our schools to the evidence-based CPD that is right for them.
At the London North East Maths Hub we have considered carefully the needs of our maths community and have organised for you an excellent programme of maths professional development. Whether you are a TA, an ECT, a Department Head looking to further your professional development or a Head teacher wanting to network, we have opportunities for all schools in Newham, Barking and Havering.

ECT SKTM – Phase 1
This project is designed to support ECTs (teachers in their first two years of teaching) who want to develop their subject knowledge and pedagogy in maths. You will take part in a two-year programme to meet all your subject knowledge and pedagogy needs in your ECT phase.
Secondary SKTM Phase 1
This project aims to offer high quality maths support and challenge for Early Career Teachers.
Whilst recognising the requirements of the Early Career Framework, the communities will provide a subject specific focus for the Early Career Teachers. It provides an opportunity for the conversation to remain focused on the teaching of mathematics, with teachers at a similar stage of their career.

We offer a range of options including whole day and half day sessions, as well as all staff science training as a twilight or part of an inset day.
One of the most popular options is for Naomi Hiscock to work with science lead(s) and SLT in the afternoon (during lesson time) and deliver a whole staff inset after lessons end.
Please contact email@example.com for more information.

These full days offer a real range of workshops and networking opportunities so should provide great CPD opportunities for all schools, they do have a cost

For the secondary conference we have two offers to support schools & local authorities/education partnerships
- When a school books a paid place they can book a second member of staff on for free (once the first staff is booked on email JVallely@newsteadwood.co.uk for a code, use this to book second member of staff)
- If 4 schools in a partnership (EP/LA) sign up we can offer a fully funded place to a 5th school. Email back to me with the names of the 4 schools who have booked on and the name of the school you wish to have a fully funded place.
Fully funded Physics & stem club programs
These are fully funded programs, hence are for a more specific audience
SKPT – subject knowledge for physics teachers – see flyer: http://www.ogdentrust.com/skpt/
This program is to support teachers who are, or will be, teaching physics outside their own specialism. It is most suitable for post ECT but ECTs are welcome. It is a blended course with a mix of facilitated and self-paced learning involves a reasonable time commitment (20 hours per module) but provides depth and a well-crafted route to better physics pedagogical content knowledge as well as subject knowledge enhancement. The face to face days are bursary funded so there really is no cost to a school.
It is an ongoing program with new modules each term. This terms module term is Forces, the first London face to face day for this program is 15th June. See above link for detail and to book.
STEM clubs – see attached flyer, fully funded workshops around STEM clubs. If you want a face to face one of these for your schools please contact Ruhena (email on flyer) or ask firstname.lastname@example.org to make the connection.
Teachometer – Physics at secondary. Are you a school who has a one to one device policy AND who are willing to try a new way of working with at least one class for at least a term? Physics lead at Tiffin school has built a platform called teachometer, this has significantly reduced planning and marking workload for Tiffin physics teachers. He has a grant to share this work with others, including full explanation, training and set up support. Please contact email@example.com for more information.

Our local London and Essex Computing Hub:
Barking & Dagenham: https://www.bandmusichub.co.uk/
The recent Ofsted RE review states, “At Primary and Secondary level, pupils should be taught by teachers who have secure subject and curriculum knowledge, who foster pupils’ interest in the subject and who are equipped to address pupils’ misunderstandings.Findings over the past few years suggest that RE is not fulfilling this ambition.”

She is passionate about children and young people being given the tools to be able to learn about and from religious and philosophical beliefs and practices.
Claire is at present Director of RE and RSHE in Newham, as well as the RE advisor in Barking and Dagenham.
