Following the work the school has been undertaking with the Teacher Development Trust, the school was asked to lead two presentations at their showcase national conference, held recently at the London Nautical School.
Deputy Headteacher, Matt Barratt and Assistant Headteacher, Jo Sykes talked their audience through "How CPD has contributed to whole school transformation" and Lead Teacher, Natasha Gibbs presented on how the "Lesson Study Model" has been successfully implemented across the school.
Lesson Study is a Japanese model of CPD that sees teachers working together using evidenced based research to inform their planning. They then observe each other teaching and evaluate the impact of their work on student outcomes.
Matt Barratt added that "it was an absolute privilege to present at the conference on behalf of the whole staff of Parkside School. The staff have worked tirelessly over recent years to ensure they provide the very best teaching and learning experiences for pupils and this is very well deserved recognition for their continual hard work".
