posted 24 Apr 2017, 03:50 by Site Admin   [ updated 26 Apr 2017, 03:43 by Miranda Frost ]

A big thank you to all who participated in our Annual Conference to make it the most upbeat and proactive celebration of our year. We welcomed truly uplifting choral performances by 4 schools, followed by presentations of Pupil-Projects for 2017-18, delivered by School Councillors from our primary and secondary schools, and listened to inspiring presentations made by the South Wests very own Youth Mayors. We were joined by Claire Hiscott, Councillor and Cabinet Member for Education and Skills. Member schools across the partnership, signed up to lead and participate in many of the Pupil Projects volunteered by the School Councillors, whilst Headteachers, Business Managers, Deputies and Governors worked in cluster-groups to help shape NW24's focus and strategy for 2017-18. Watch this space for more news on all of this exciting activity...!

NW24 Inset Day 2017

posted 19 Jan 2017, 09:46 by Miranda Frost   [ updated 19 Jan 2017, 09:50 ]

Hosted at Bristol Free School, this event attracted over 500 delegates, from 20 schools, attending 23 different courses, (which accounted for 30 workshops) over the course of the morning and afternoon. Feedback from attendees on the workshops they attended was extremely positive and all ideas for new, additional and repeat workshops have been captured in anticipation of 2018. NW24 would especially like to congratulate and thank those Teachers who led workshops and inspired their peers - we appreciate the time, energy and enterprise this takes, so thank you all and we encourage others to embrace this opportunity next year.  We would also like to thank the Site, IT and Catering teams at BFS for supporting NW24 for the second year running, and hosting so many whilst managing additional training for their own staff. And finally, we hope to report later this year, on what has been achieved as a result of this Inset Day and the "learning" achieved: what difference has it made, or is this making, to your pupils in your school? Watch this space for the headlines!.

NW24 SEN Summit:

posted 14 Nov 2016, 14:33 by Site Admin   [ updated 14 Nov 2016, 14:34 ]

Lead by NW24 we intend to address changes to SEND funding that may impact provision within our schools. 
We have the opportunity to hear first hand, an overview of current SEN and high needs funding and provision in Bristol, brought to us by Paul Jacobs, Service Director, Education and Skills, Bristol City Council and Annette Jones, Head of Specialist Education and Access, Bristol City Council. 
This is an opportunity to understand why SEN provision is in the position it is, the reality now and future projection.
We believe that NW24 has influence: through bringing together stakeholder-groups we have an opportunity to shape Local Authority thinking with a selection of constructive and creative and well thought ideas, that may provide direction, guidance, organisation and proactive facilitation between us, and thereby provide delivery of the highest quality education we can for all pupils.
Join us, participate, collaborate on Monday 21st November, 12midday - 5pm at Engineers House, The Promenade, Clifton Down, BS8 3NB

NW24 Year 2

posted 3 Aug 2016, 11:24 by Site Admin   [ updated 4 Aug 2016, 04:37 ]

A year ago, the Bristol North 3 Heads' Cluster renamed itself NW24, and what a great year of collaboration we've had. Staff joined together in the cluster INSET Day in January. Most of the headteachers have engaged in at least one "collaborative review" with colleagues, looking at their school improvement priorities, and Business Managers have undertaken substantial projects on business continuity and joint contract procurement. Governors have been energised by the opportunity to meet colleagues from other local schools and pool their expertise. We have thriving Literacy, Numeracy, SEN and Deputy Head networks.

In the coming year, what we are most excited about is the chance to involve pupils from all of our schools in joint activities. We are also looking forward to populating our online Resource library with material from the various staff networks that have been meeting regularly and sharing best practice.
