Equality and Rights Advocates (EARA) update

The EARA groups across county have been very active challenging discrimination across a range of issues within their school communities. Their most recent meeting, in June 2017, was a celebration of all they have achieved in their schools over the academic year. The students were presented with certificates as recognition of all their hard work and effort in challenging discrimination and promoting equality and social justice in their school community.                                                                

The following represents a flavour of the initiatives they have delivered as part of the EARA group.

Excerpt from PDL News, published on 7 February 2018

At the time of writing, the world of Personal Development Learning (PDL) is possibly going through one of it’s biggest changes in recent years. I’m referring to the “wider engagement and consultation” process currently underway in seeking views and opinions regarding relationships and sex education (RSE). On the following pages you will find the most recent announcement regarding the statutory status of RSE and a note about resources.

2018 Hampshire Interfaith Calendar

The Hampshire Religious Education (RE) Team and Hampshire SACRE are delighted to bring you the 2018 edition of the Hampshire Interfaith Calendar

The images forming the 2018 calendar were created by children and young people in their RE classes. Living Difference III, the agreed syllabus for RE in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and the Isle of Wight, seeks to introduce children and young people to what a religious way of looking at and existing in the world may offer in leading one’s life, individually and collectively. Religious education in Hampshire, Portsmouth, Southampton and the Isle of Wight intends to play an educative part in the lives of children and young people as they come to speak, think and act in the world.

Teaching to the top! How to develop a growth mindset within the history classroom: a conference workshop by Mike Bruce and Wendy Drodge

There has been a huge drive within Hampshire to close the gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium pupils. The Secondary History Steering Group has been working to develop specific history strategies that will enable all students to make significant progress in our classrooms, including drawing on the work of Carol Dweck and her growth mindset research. At the recent Hampshire and Wessex Secondary History Leadership Conference, Wendy and I aimed to deliver a workshop that provided relevant and practical strategies with a growth mindset to improve the quality of history work produced by your students. What follows is a summary of the workshop with its two central themes; differentiation and the use of subject-specific language in the classroom.
