Subject Leader Network Meetings

Subject Leaders

Subject leadership is now a top priority in primary schools, especially with the demands of the new inspection framework. 

A teacher with the title of subject leader is given the task of improving the teaching and learning provisioning of a specific subject taught within the school. They are also responsible for guiding other teachers and making all key decisions to ensure the particular subject is taught as well as possible and remains in line with OFSTED requirements.  Subject leaders are crucial to a primary school’s success through their role in securing and sustaining improvement in each area of the curriculum.

Aquila are providing subject leader groups to give them the opportunity to share best practice to support teaching and learning across the Trust.

Over the academic year we will look at covering ofsted subject research, creating sequencing of the curriculum subject throughout the school, best practice and moderation.

Aquila are pleased to announce that we are working with the Maidstone Computer Hub on how to develop and implement a broad and balanced curriculum, plan the improvement of computing teaching and learning and to provide professional support and development to others for our schools. You will develop a detailed action plan to guide the effective use and development of resources, assessment approaches and ways to enrich the computing curriculum. By monitoring and communicating impact you will enable yourself and school leadership to accurately understand the strengths of computing in your school, and sustainably plan for improvement.

This will be a 2 day course with a gap task:

Cohort One: Tuesday 30th November 2021 & Tuesday 18th January 2022
