This week we have an update on this years Transition Day (6th July), a choice of two Primary middle leadership training programmes for 2021/22, a webinar for governors courtesy of Computing Hub as well as sign up for Project Turnover's new cohort, a date for the HEP AGM plus an offer from Bolder Academy of school furniture and kitchen equipment following the move to their new school.

On behalf of Secondary Headteachers

Transition Day - 6th July - update

Following on from a meeting of Secondary Headteachers, it would appear that most schools will not be planning to host transition days on Tuesday 6th July 2021. As highlighted previously, schools have identified specific contexts that would make it impossible and they will be letting their feeder schools know their plans.  

Given the continuing rise in positive cases in the borough, and specifically localised outbreaks within LBH, most schools are now offering alternatives to incoming Year 7's such as remote 'getting to know you' sessions, providing access to virtual tours on school websites, support through summer schools and in some instances providing a Y7 only day at the start of next term.

Secondary Headteachers would like to thank Primary Headteachers for their understanding at this time. In most cases the secondary will have informed their primary feeders of the changes however if you require further information please do not hesitate to contact the school for updates.

A date for your diary

HEP would like to invite all members to join the HEP AGM to be held at The Lensbury Conference Centre 8.30am 30th September. The board will report on our activities over the past year, review the company finances as well as introducing new HEP directors. 

The AGM will then be followed by partnership meetings for Secondary Headteachers and area meetings for Primary Headteachers.

SixintoSeven Weekly Update

Book a live one to one meeting to complete final tasks

Thank you for supporting SixIntoSeven this year. The HEP deadline for submitting all pupil data was 24th June, and a number of schools have some outstanding tasks, so Helpdesk Team wanted to reach out to see if you need any help.

HEP primaries should:
•            Complete and publish Attainment for all pupils 
•            Complete and publish Pupil Information forms for all pupils 
•            Complete and publish Pupil Flags

SixintoSeven are happy to arrange a call with you on Teams to go through the portal and your next steps. Please feel free to book some time here;

Unmatched Pupils
On the Attainment and Pupil Information tabs, there is now an option to view unmatched pupils. Where a pupil is showing as ‘unmatched’, it means that the pupil is not currently on a secondary school’s intake list (this could be because the school haven’t sent you a connection request yet, because they haven’t uploaded their pupils or it could be that the pupil is going to an out of borough school who are not using SixIntoSeven).

If these pupils are going to an out of borough secondary school, we will have an option available for primaries to download a PDF of the information (both attainment and pupil information forms) to send to the secondaries outside of the SixIntoSeven system. If you’d like to know more then please contact the Helpdesk for support.

SixintoSeven are happy to arrange a call with you on Teams to go through the portal and your next steps. Please feel free to book some time here;

Primary Middle Leaders Development Programme 2021/22

HEP is pleased to share an opportunity to join a Middle Leaders Development Programme next year with Andy Phillips, whose Deep Dive sessions have been very well-received during the 2020/21 Subject Leader Programme.

Starting from late September this course will:

  • Take place over two terms across seven sessions
  • Involve participants attending a series of half-day and twilight sessions
  • Involve a half-day school-based session working with the course tutor on their respective school improvement project

This will need to involve one or two middle leaders plus a senior colleague who will be the leadership coach who will attend some of the sessions.

The cost of this programme is £495 per middle leader delegate. Please note that there is no fee for the leadership coach. 

HEP will invoice schools once booking has been completed. Places will be limited to 20 middle leaders. Full details of the programme expectations and schedule can be found below

Secondary Subject Network Surveys

Deadline to complete surveys is Friday 2nd July

HEP is grateful for the surveys that have already been returned by both Subject Network members and Subject Network leads. So far, 11 leads and 76 members have completed the survey. Please can you encourage any remaining colleagues to complete these by the end of this week, 2nd July? Their feedback will be collated and published in a report at the start of next academic year.  
There has been some very positive feedback so far which we’d like to share with you:
“The best part is feeling like you are making decisions in line with other schools. When so much was up in the air about exams it was an amazing relief to talk to everyone and compare notes.”

“It is great to know what other schools in the borough are doing and it makes your role feel less isolated.”

“Sharing practice. Discussing challenges with colleagues. Sense of being part of a wider team for small departments.”
These surveys can be found on the HEP website, via the links below and they have also been emailed to all members and leads by Nina Johal.
