Second meeting on Thursday 17th March 2022 – 

HEP would like to share information about the next Primary Subject Leader network session.

The second session will take place on Thursday 17th March, 4-5:30pm, via Zoom.

Identified through Joint Practice Development, these sessions keep subject leaders up-to-date with the national perspective and good practice developments within their subject.

There is no need to book a ticket, as everyone who is already registered will be sent a Zoom invitation.

At the first session in November 2021, 215 teachers attended a subject network session. All subjects, facilitated by subject experts, were offered apart from Art/DT.

Of the 105 delegates who completed the survey:

  • 83% felt they had a clear understanding of the information available to support them in their role as a subject leader
  • 90% felt the length of the network session was sufficient
  • 88% agreed or strongly agreed that online networking met their expectations
  • 92% agreed or strongly agreed that the quality of the subject specialist met my expectations

Following feedback from the facilitators, we would like to remind delegates of the protocol for these network meetings.

Please remind your teachers to:

  • Read the agenda which will be sent with your invitation
  • Come to the session prepared and willing to participate and share ideas and practice
  • Ensure you have your camera on and you have audio working

An invitation for the session will be with all delegates by half term.

The subjects currently being offered are – 

History, Geography, Maths, English, Music, RE, Science, PSHE, PE, Computing, MfL

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.”
