Sir John Jones has captivated school leaders in the region and now we are delighted to bring his Magic Weaving Business to all of our teachers and support staff on one BIG INSET day!  You all play a crucial and challenging role in shaping and educating young minds.  The day will begin with a welcome and reflections on the current context from the Diocesan Director of Education.  Sir John Jones will present two sessions either side of lunch.  He will invigorate and revive your enthusiasm but in a very  practical way.

Why is it that some children get more opportunities than others? How can we break through those barriers?

The aim of this day is to send you out to weave more magic in your school.  The day will include ti me for you to work with your colleagues on how to apply the magic back in the classroom.

Sir John retains a very down to earth approach to education, believing it to be about social change, never just about ticking boxes or meeting targets. Covering an impressive range of educational issues from leadership and inclusion to organizational development and ‘futures thinking’, Sir John is guaranteed to give all those who come into contact with him food for thought, practical ideas that will make a difference and a genuine and moving sense of awe at the power teachers have to change young lives.

This practical course will enable school leaders, governors and classroom practitioners to hold a mirror up to everyday practices that exist in our schools.

• Our daily procedures are meant to serve all children well - but do they?

• Do they have unintended consequences on groups of pupils and families?

• How do you know they don’t?

A range of practical strategies for promoting truly inclusive practices will be explored so that all school leaders will feel more confident that every child in their care is provided with the very best opportunity to excel in a diverse and challenging world.

Keynote presentations and workshops will help delegates evaluate the impact of school routines on children and families. Our guest speakers are:

Jim Davies MBE – Head of Youth Engagement, The Children’s Society

Lynne Gavin – Headteacher at Pakeman Primary School, London (National Winner of the Pupil Premium Award)
