During the first half-term, staff from both schools joined together to receive a range of in-service training and development.
INSET Day 1 was spent reviewing and evaluating school policies and procedures and collaboratively writing our joint School Development Plan.
INSET Day 2 was focused on receiving updates regarding the new ALN (Additional Learning Needs) reforms in Wales and developing strategies within school to ensure we consistently meet the needs of all of our pupils. Staff also received training on Precision Teaching from the Caerphilly Educational Psychology Service and teachers discussed the new professional standards and undertook a self-evaluation of their current practice.
If you would like further information regarding our school development plan, please do not hesitate to contact the school for information on our five priorities this academic year.
