NQT CHANGES SEPTEMBER 2016

As from the academic year 2016-17 the NQT package previously offered by the local Authority will be provided by the Bath & Mendip Partnership Teaching School. The NQT programme will encompasses the best of the 2 programmes previously offered separately by the LA and the Bath & Mendip Partnership Teaching School. The Bath & Mendip Partnership Teaching Schools will secure the services of an Appropriate Body.

PART-TIME NQTs or FULL TIME MID-YEAR STARTERS

Any part time NQTs or full time mid-year starters will remain with The Local Authority as Appropriate Body until completed and will be able to access training from a provider of their choice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those members of staff who have acted as NQT Mentors and supported numerous NQTs successfully through their first year in the teaching profession.

If you have any queries or questions regarding your NQTs deborah_carter@bathnes.gov.uk

Publication: guidance for writing statutory end of year reports We've published guidance for schools about writing statutory end of year reports for parents at the end of key stage 1 (KS1) and key stage 2 (KS2). Reports must include comparative information about the attainment of pupils of the same age in your school and nationally. To help schools, we've published a KS1 template in which you can populate your school's overall results. We'll publish a KS2 template when we return results to schools, on Tuesday 10 July.
Ready, Steady, Go... Guidance on School Readiness
18 Jun
Despite the term ‘School Readiness’ being widely used, there is no clearly agreed national definition. This potentially leads to an inconsistent approach to supporting children to be “ready” for school. For example there is debate about whether school readiness refers to the child being ready for transition into Year One, or into the Reception year (YR). In this guidance, developed by a working party from Bath & North East Somerset Children’s Centre and Early Years Services, school readiness refers to transition into YR.
