Secondary Subject Networks

Subject networks have been established to assist the development of subject teaching in Hounslow whilst supporting CPD of middle leaders.

The network aims to:

  • Develop professional relationships between colleagues from different schools which facilitates ongoing peer support
  • Support subject leads in keeping up-to-date with emerging policy and consider, with their subject colleagues, the implications for strategy and practice
  • Facilitate sharing and development of good practice related to subject teaching, learning and assessment
  • Provide a mechanism for efficient and effective consultation and information flow between subject leads and the wider HEP

The success of Subject Networks is based on the commitment of all stakeholders. These stakeholders include Headteachers, Senior Leaders of Teaching and Learning, Subject Leads, Heads of Department, Curriculum Leads, Subject Network Leads, 14-19 Service Team, HEP and LBH.

Ofsted and Curriculum Review April 2021

Ofsted has published the second in a series of reviews into different subjects across the curriculum.

Ofsted says - ‘This is only the start of our work in this area, though. As a force for improvement, we will be publishing a series of documents from April 2021, including:
Research reviews – these will collate currently available research evidence. We will consider what published research evidence tells us about a high-quality education in each subject
Subject reports – we will inform leaders, teachers and tutors, parents and policymakers about what we have learned about the state of the nation when it comes to the quality of school curriculum in a range of subjects
To carry out this work and lead on our curriculum thinking in schools, we have set up a curriculum unit. We have been recruiting subject leads for a range of subjects, starting with national curriculum subjects and religious education. These subject experts will be leading this work, along with our research team.’

What our members say

Contingent Talk with Books – "Really really enjoying this training, I feel it's a lovely way to up-skill our EYPs. Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes."

Get Hounslow Reading – "Great 'inspiring' course which presents plenty of opportunity for communication and collaboration. Also a good mixture of theory and practical ideas. Many thanks."

Secondary Subject Networks – "Effective agendas, excellent external speakers organised that we wouldn't usually have time to arrange to meet to help generate new ideas for trips, extracurricular activities and lessons."

Get Hounslow Reading – “Feel very inspired and not under pressure to do this. I want to do this. I can see that it is child-centred, but that I also love it!”

Secondary Subject Networks – “As I am very new to my role as EAL Lead, and I am at a new school, the Subject Networks have been crucial in helping me to learn more from experienced members of staff. The Google Drive with shared EAL resources has been incredibly helpful for starting EAL interventions across the school.”

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!”

SEND Training – “There was plenty of time for discussion which was valuable. Strategies to help support, and ideas to consider, if children have been impacted by Domestic Abuse allowed me to think about the issues more than before."

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 – “Really interesting to hear what other schools are thinking of doing by way of a recovery curriculum when we return. I think the discussions around wellbeing were very pertinent.”
