PSB NEW 2016

Blog

A good guest speaker, who talked about the need to give children the meta-language of grammar to aid them in the understanding of how Standard English works. It was a good to have the chance to share our best practise. It was great to receive positive feedback on what we do.

It (the meeting) was an excellent opportunity to meet fellow Pre-prep people; to share what we are doing, and to gain ideas from others in the forum style seminars.

The MFL PSB meeting was very well organised and extremely useful. I came away with a much better idea on how to embed our Stroud Spirit skills within my teaching/planning.

I found the Prep-Prep meeting to be really beneficial. It was great to see how it was being implemented in another school but also to have the opportunity to talk to lots of people about how it looked in their school. I came away inspired.

Fantastic science meeting - very useful to hear from a Senior Independent school about the qualities that they wish to see in their new intake - a strength in the 'soft skills' which we can only amplify with the Stroud Spirit curriculum.

I found it comforting that after speaking to two other heads of department who invest heavily in the PSB skills sets that it has had an impact on the way their students go about learning and is proving to be very beneficial for them.

I found it extremely informative as to how best assess the PSB within the Science department and there are lots of opportunities in which to do this not just during traditional testing period and look to do linearly throughout the year and many of which we are trying to implement now.

I found this to be a most informative, encouraging and reassuring meeting.  In particular, I found it most useful simply for meeting other Heads of History who have embarked on the same journey and are at different stages on that journey.  I have come away with more clarity, vision, ideas and resources, all of which are being fed into discussions about how we can develop our own implementation of the PSB concept.

The PSB day was the most useful course I have been on in years. It was inspiring, informative, and left me eager to develop a course of study which inspires and challenges the children in equal measure.

The PSB journey can very different for each school and the variety of approaches gave us useful food for thought. Combining 'making and doing' tasks with 'listening, learning and reflecting' meant there was no dip in enthusiasm! And Adam's additional input about scholarships was really informative.
