Active School Hero - Nominations Open!
Active kids are healthier, happier and more successful. They perform better in their classrooms, communities and future careers. That’s why ukactive Kids and Nike have launched Active School Hero, to recognise the achievements of those people working in primary schools across greater London who are helping to get kids active.
Nominations are free of charge and you may nominate as many Heroes as you would like. It can be any school staff member in a London primary school who helps kids be active; from the lollypop lady, teaching assistant and librarian to the catering staff, active travel lead or the after school activities manager. The nominations will close on April 8th at 11:59pm.
Nominations can be made through the website https://activeschoolhero.com/ and please see below for the toolkit to promote the award through your networks and feel free to share the attached posters.

LNE Maths Hub - Funded opportunities to work with a Mastery Specialist
London North East Maths Hub are seeking to recruit primary schools to take part in a programme of professional development in 2019-2020, designed to support schools in implementing a teaching for mastery approach. Two teachers from each participating school will join a Work Group, consisting of six or seven local primary schools, and led by a trained primary Mastery Specialist.
Work Groups (sometimes known as Teacher Research Groups or TRGs) meet regularly to plan, observe and discuss teaching for mastery, and in between meetings the teachers will explore mastery approaches both in their own classrooms and across their school. They will also receive support from a local classroom-based Mastery Specialist, who leads the group. This model of professional development, involving hands-on learning and peer-to-peer support, is evidence-based and designed to support substantial long-term change.
Places are now available for state-funded schools in England to become part of this programme from September 2019. Two teachers from each participant school attend six, half-day meetings during the school year, and lead teaching for mastery development in their own school.
There is no charge for participation in the programme and schools receive £1000 as a contribution to cover costs. They are also eligible to claim £2000 in match-funding to buy maths textbooks.
