New Foundation Subject Leader Network Meetings: Music - Computing - Geography


Gloucestershire’s School Improvement team are delighted to be adding to the existing suite of primary subject leader network meetings for English, mathematics and science by introducing the first foundation subject networks. Initially, these will be for primary music, computing and geography.

The offer for these new subjects will include three half-day sessions per year, starting in November 2022, and will aim to:

  • Support subject leaders in developing their school’s curriculum
  • Build subject leaders’ knowledge and confidence in leading their subjects
  • Develop delegates as practitioners and leaders

Meetings will provide:

  • High quality professional development and improved subject knowledge
  • Updates on national and local issues
  • Examples of successful good practice
  • Opportunities for discussion, reflection, collaboration and networking

EXPERTISE: All three subject networks will benefit from collaboration with local subject experts who will bring their insights and practical ideas to the meetings.

PRICE: Computing and Geography  - The offer of three half-day sessions costs £175 per subject, or a discounted rate of £160 for schools who are full GLOSSI 1 subscribers.

We are fortunate to have secured Arts Council funding for our Music network. The three half day sessions are therefore £140 or £120 for schools who are GLOSSI 1 subscribers.
