Transition Guarantee
06 Dec
Dear Colleagues, Following on from the transitions planning workshop on the 22nd of November we want to extend our thanks to all those in attendance. It was an excellent morning and your thoughts, ideas, and input will be key in refining and implementing a transitions programme that meets the needs of children, their families, and professionals moving forward. On the day, an Appreciative Inquiry (AI) was completed which captured all the strengths / needs / challenges / dreams that you have to ensure an effective transitions programme is implemented for next year. We are currently working on updating the existing Transition Guarantee for all schools, as well as looking at the AI model and the information you provided to ensure that a partnership approach is adopted for the programme moving forward. We would like to invite you to a follow-up workshop where we can deliver to you our new and improved transitions programme, so I would appreciate if you could nominate any of the following professionals from your school to attend the workshop; • Head Teacher • Deputy Head Teacher • Head of Year 7 • Inclusion Manager • Lead for Year 6 / 7 • SENCO We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for continuing to support this process to ensure we continue to make a difference to the young people that will be undertaking their transition for next year, whilst also ensuring as agency’s / professionals we are recognising the needs of the young people and responding appropriately. Below are the details of Appreciative Inquiry Event; Date:14th February 2020 Time: 09.30 – 13.00 Venue: CEME In order to secure a place on the workshop please email Lauren Satchell - lauren.satchell@havering.gov.uk.

Attendance Coding School - Polling Station
22 Nov
For the attention of staff responsible for updating pupils’ attendance in SIMS Dear Colleagues Subject: Polling Station - attendance code required for pupils unable to attend school due to closure for Polling Stations If your school is used as a polling station you will need to enter attendance codes in SIMS to explain pupil absence. Because this polling day was unexpected, and schools could not plan to include it as one of the inset days, then enter attendance code Y for exceptional circumstances. To do this in SIMS: Select Focus | Attendance/Lesson Monitor | Exceptional Circumstances Click on Search to check if it has been added already, if not click New and enter date in both From and To boxes Group Type - will default to the whole school but for partial closure, you can select from the dropdown list e.g year group Click Search and select (if partial closure and year is selected use Ctrl key to highlight more than one year) Code – select Y Unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances The description is Polling Day Click Apply and then OK to the message that the marks have been applied. This has the effect of adding Y codes to the selected pupils within your school Please contact the Attendance Team if you have any queries.
Invigorate Your School at the East London & Essex Education Conference 2020
20 Nov
This year, our conference is back with a bang! On Thursday 30 January 2020, we have rounded up the best in education for our annual East London & Essex Education Conference to provide you with expert ideas, tips and guidance on how to invigorate your school, from your senior leaders to your pupils. The hum-drum of every day school life doesn't always invite ideas for change and, more than ever before, schools need extra support to cope with shrinking budgets, challenges around pupil and staff wellbeing, and complicated procurement processes. These are tough asks for school leaders, including business managers, whose primary responsibility is to provide quality education. Recognising the needs of schools, HES provides high quality day-to-day support leading to positive outcomes for children and young people. We offer support in the areas of school improvement and curriculum, leadership and governance, finance, attendance & behaviour, and procurement through our award-winning Brokerage Service. At our dedicated Learning and Development Centre at CEME, our experts will take you on a journey from the often tricky subject of wellbeing through to the practicalities of funding and bid applications. Our aim isn’t to sell to you, but to support you and provide you with the tools that you need to invigorate your school, staff and.... Well, you! If that isn't enough, our conference boasts a large exhibition where you will also get the chance to browse an array of suppliers and network with colleagues. You can also enter our free raffle with the chance to win some high ticket items! Want to join the conversation? Use #HESConf2020 and be a part of the buzz!

Developing An Outstanding Curriculum
This course will encourage participants to think deeply about the body of knowledge they want to give to the pupils at their schools and to take ownership of how the curriculum is planned and delivered to provide exciting, engaging, rich learning opportunities for all pupils. It will provide opportunities for delegates to think about designing and implementing a curriculum that is relevant to the needs of the pupils within their schools and support them to understand: • The intent of the curriculum – why have we designed it this way? • The implementation – how it is being delivered across all year groups? How is building from prior skills, knowledge and understanding? • The impact – do pupils know more? can do more? understand more?
