Brilliant Residentials v Progress 8 - how Learning Away fits with schools
Wed 16 November 2016, 15:00 – 17:00 GMT
Brilliant Residentials v Progress 8
The school system faces the biggest series of changes it has seen for a generation. The accountability frameworks have changed at primary and secondary; there is no longer a truly national curriculum; school structures are changing with the acceleration of Multi Academy Trusts but also the potential expansion of grammar schools; qualification reform continues apace and school budgets are facing unprecedented pressures.
This session will explore the new roles in the system - who are the Regional School Commissioners? And consider the challenges and potential of the new structures for Learning Away - what are emerging Multi Academy Trust structures? What are the accountabilty measures. What is the EBACC and how could #brilliantresidentials help? How does delivering residentials sit alongside the pressure of getting a good score on the Progress 8 Measure? How do we ensure and measure equitable access? What next with Pupil Premium, Character and Social Mobility?
The value of residentials as a tool for the rounded development of children and young people is well understood amongst those who are engaged in them - as provider, commissioner or participant. This has been evidenced through the work of Learning Away - an initiative funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and now a consortium of organisations committed to more children and young people having #brilliantresidentials.
This free session from NotDeadFish is for those interested in better understanding the school context to ensure that their offers better engage and support schools and ulitmately lead to more #brilliantresidentials.
By the end of the session participants should have a better view of:
-the accountability frameworks that schools work to
-the new structures in the school system
-key points of influence
-the pressures on schools and how residential providers can offer support
