Last week in brief…

Last week the CLC team were out and about across the borough supporting and advising our fantastic schools and partners.

Joe’s week began with an E-Safety assembly for pupils from St Helen’s Primary discussing what they do online and how to stay safe. Later in the week he delivered a CEOP E-safety accreditation CPD for teachers, looking at the best resources and lesson plans for school and home.

Below is a round up of a few of our favourites. For more support with E-Safety in your school email Kim:

Meanwhile Julia was at Gipsy Hill Federation helping the year group leaders get up and running with Twitter. Did you know that nearly two thirds of lambeth schools are now using Twitter to build their online presence and promote their school? If you are a non- tweeting school who want to start, drop us a line and we’ll arrange a consultancy to get you going.

Sarah has just returned from a fascinating visit to schools in Egypt. She visited schools in Alexandria as part of a CfBT Education Trust project supporting the teaching of English. One of the things that struck her, was the way teachers overcome the challenge of teaching more than 50 primary children in a class and manage to be heard against the high decibel noise of traffic. Like most people in Egypt, teachers are keen users of Facebook and use Facebook groups for professional learning and to share teaching practice.

Colleagues from Lambeth visited on Wednesday to discuss the development of digital skills for families across the borough.

The amazing tech team went above and beyond this week building hundreds of shelving units to store equipment in one of our technical services schools – Is there no end to their talents?

Krzysztof attended the CCS Expo (mini Bett) to see what’s new out there. He’ll report back after some more investigation.

 On Thursday afternoon Hill Mead Primary parents and pupils braved the rain and travelled to Pop Brixton to see their films being screened as the culmination of their family animation course – very proud parents and children!
