Event description


What's the topic for this TeachMeet?

Refreshments: From 4:15pm onwards

Teachmeet: 4:30pm to 6:30pm


How does it work?

Share an idea, a resource, a method that you find particularly effective in running interventions with groups of students. It could be a website, an activity, a strategy, absolutely anything!

Deliver a 3 or 6 minute presentation or simply come along and watch!

Why do it?

Learn something new, be amazed, amused and inspired! It really is the best CPD there is and it's FREE*! An opportunity to pick up new ideas from practitioners across the local area.

What's the agenda for the TeachMeet?

1: Identifying pupils and assessing need

Understand how you identify which pupils need support both as individuals and as groups. Improving understanding of:

  • your whole-school needs
  • your cohort needs
  • needs of your individual pupils

2: Target setting and planning activities

Using data to set targets and plan activities. Enable you to:

  • use data to set personalised pupil targets
  • use data to set session objectives for the intervention
  • understand how to set SMART targets
  • decide who will run interventions
  • decide what type of intervention is needed
  • plan which activities to include and how long an intervention should run for.

3: Monitoring sessions

An overview of the steps you need to take to monitor the effectiveness of sessions as they take place. Enable you to:

  • see the importance of considering the pupil’s response at different stages of the intervention
  • know what to monitor
  • track the progress of the intervention to see if it needs to be adjusted for better impact.

4: Evaluating effectiveness and planning next steps

Knowing how to evaluate the session and plan what the pupils should go on to do after it has ended. Enable you to:

  • know if the intervention is having an impact on the pupils accessing it
  • accurately track pupil progress
  • provide information on progress and next steps for pupils.
  • identify effective resources
  • inform teaching and learning and provide information on staff development needs
  • provide objective evidence to others that your interventions positively impact progress.
  • provide evidence of how pupil premium funding is being used, if appropriate.

What is a TeachMeet?

A TeachMeet is an organised but informal conference for teachers to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights in teaching.

Participants volunteer to demonstrate good practice they’ve delivered over the past year, or discuss strategies that enhance classroom practice.

What can I gain from attending a TeachMeet?

This TeachMeet is focused on Interventions with Impact - working with students in secondary schools to improve attainment and overall engagement with learning.

You'll hear from people from a variety of backgrounds, with various roles and responsibilities in school as well as from those with no responsibility other than classroom teaching. You'll have the opportunity to engage through question and answer sessions on the day, discussion with other delegates and via social media on the day and after the event.

How can I contribute to the TeachMeet?

We're looking for colleagues to give a 5 minute 'pitch' on any aspect of running Interventions in secondary schools. The pitch needs to be focused on one of the 4 areas listed below and we would like anyone interested in giving a pitch to get in touch before the event to give us an idea of what your pitch will on.

If you're interested, please firstly sign up for a 'Pitch' ticket at which point you'll be prompted to give brief details of what you'd like to include in your pitch. We'll then get in touch via email to confirm arrangements with you.

Any queries?
