Professional Learning Sessions

“I left feeling inspired” 2017/18 participants


  • Alliance schools welcome a huge number of visitors looking to observe aspects of their practice
  • Seeing practice in action as well as having the theory/reflection is a more powerful approach to professional development and learning


  • Focused sessions, looking in detail at an aspect of practice – lots of opportunity for shared learning, but not too much time out of your own school

Upcoming sessions

Date/times: Friday 5th October 2018, 12.30-15.30

Focus: Reading Development

Aimed at: Senior and middle leaders

Venue: Redriff Primary School, Salter Rd, Rotherhithe, London SE16 5LQ. The session will be hosted by Charlotte Heath, Head of School and Sarah Cook, Literacy Lead

Through the Accelerated Reader programme, Redriff Primary have been able to create individualised reading programmes for all children based on their ability, track reading habits and appropriate book choices, and provide children with individual feedback for how to improve. All of which have contributed to closing the gaps.

During this session, participants will be given an introduction to Accelerated Reader, take part in a guided learning walk (when they will have the opportunity to speak to children about their reading), hear how the programme has motivated and enthused some of their most reluctant readers, and hear how ultimately it has impacted on the school’s reading data.
