Opportunity for one primary school to work with the National Portrait Gallery – 

HEP would like to share an exciting free opportunity with primary schools.

As part of the University of West London’s work with National Portrait Gallery’s People Powered: Heathrow, we have one spot for a local primary school to take up the final place on the programme – we would love for a Hounslow Primary to take this, and think this would make a wonderful end of term activity.

This consists of:

  • A workshop day led by artist Jessica McDermott in a primary school – over 1 day Jessica will deliver 2-3 workshops working with a different class each session (see workshop information below). We can offer 13 July or dates during the following week
  • An online teachers CPD session on Wednesday 29 June 15.45-17.15 including an intro to the People Powered: Heathrow portraits, resource and practical activities
  • A resource for participating schools to continue to use that connects to art and local history curriculum and offers activities that can be incorporated into classes
  • An invitation for students and their families to visit the related display at the University of West London from 19 July when it opens to the public

The Teacher CPD session for Heathrow schools will take place on:

Wednesday 29 June 3:45-5:15pm, online on MS Teams.

Up to ten members of staff per school can attend.

The session will be recorded if your school is unable to join for the after school session.

What our members say

Ofsted Inspection Training – "Four days well spent! Supporting the development of our school under the guidance of a skilled trainer with a wealth of experience across the primary range was invaluable."

Primary Subject Networks – "The content in the sessions covers all aspects of high quality practice in Maths and it makes me reflective on my practice in class and how I lead and help develop other teachers."

Primary Subject Networks – "Meeting other subject leaders and sharing, makes me feel better about what we are delivering and that we are on the right track."

Develop your A level Teaching – "It was really nice to be able to talk to other A level German teachers as there aren’t very many and we could share our experiences."

Contingent Talk with Books – "Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes. Well-planned and organised project, fantastic expert who inspires us all."

Get Hounslow Reading – "The biggest impact has been on our teachers’ enthusiasm for reading/books and their knowledge of high quality texts, finding innovative ways to engage readers through displays, book talk and story time."

Secondary Subject Networks – "There are so many useful takeaways from the meeting to help improve teaching and learning and they are things which can easily be put into place after the meeting."

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator

Secondary Subject Networks – “I really enjoy the content and the supportive group of fellow geography leaders discussing ideas in a non-judgmental, relatively informal way. The group certainly helps each other and fundamentally discusses relevant topics which are benefiting me.”

Get Hounslow Reading – "Very informative and helpful. A lovely chance to reflect. Excellent, enthusiastic delivery which would inspire anyone! You are very knowledgeable and sessions are well-organised. Thank you!”

Challenging Behaviour Training – “Great training, thank you for all your expertise and advice. I learnt lots of things about different ways that can affect pupils’ behaviour and how to deal with different situations."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”

Develop your A Level Teaching – “A much appreciated forum to apply pedagogy to a subject specific domain, with such rich professional talk after the keynotes in the Economics breakout session.”
