'Giving to help others' Assembly

'Giving to help others' Assembly

‘Giving to help others’ (http://givingtohelpothers.org) primary school assembly pack is an age appropriate presentation developed by teachers for teachers and it is linked to the KS1 and KS2 PSHE curriculum. Founded by charity Team Margot Foundation in partnership with NHS Blood and Transplant, ‘Giving to help others’ introduces primary school children to the concept of giving blood, platelets, bone marrow, stem cells and ultimately organs so that this type of conversation becomes the ‘norm’ rather than the exception. Although the children are too young to donate, the hope is that they go home and tell their adult loved ones at home and within their communities that they are able to help others now. The assembly pack is free and easily downloadable from the website givingtohelpothers.org. No pre-work is required because the PowerPoint presentation includes teacher notes to compliment the short animated video alongside a series of questions to help the children’s understanding. There is also text available that can be sent to parents / carers either before the assembly or afterwards in a newsletter. If preferred, the ‘Giving to help others’ assembly pack can also be given within the classroom. The delivery of ‘Giving to help others’ takes approximate 20 minutes. Please note that a new module on Blood is currently being developed for Year 6 and it will fit in with the STEM Statutory National Curriculum, as well as touching on the PSHE KS2 Association Programme of Study. It will also have strong links to the English Curriculum as well as Science and PSHE. New modules will be added annually to the ‘Giving to help others’ education programme.

CV/ Resume ( Head teacher/ Senior leaders)

This is the CV I submitted to successfully gain my first headship. I bought the blank template off a resume website. It looks professional, concise and without waffle. The feedback I received was that it was the best CV out of all applicants. Schools in UK use application forms so this will be good for international applications or you could use this format inside your application where you have to write about work history, strengths etc. I used this CV to apply for headships however it can be adapted to any leadership role and the format can be adapted for teaching role too.

Stress: Self-Belief Survey

Stress: Self-Belief Survey

Teaching is a challenging profession. It needs high levels of emotional and sometimes physical input. This is part of the explanation why it can be therefore so rewarding. However, prolonged exposure to this atmosphere can escort people to the condition we call stress– fundamentally a negative state that can be defined as ‘an assault on self’. Stress is a negative feeling state which has both psychological and physical components. The scale on the self-belief survey is an sign of the amount to which individuals feel they can accomplish a range of professional goals. Research has shown that those people with a higher than justified self-belief tend to cope better than those with realistic or low levels of self-effectiveness. High scores on questions 1-3, 5 and 7-10 and low scores on 4, 6, 11 indicate upbeat self-beliefs (and vice versa). Look through the responses you have received from your department and allow for additional responses specific to the feedback received, and to your particular school or department. Based on this feedback, the following causes of stress are most likely to be identified; • Lack of ownership of key decisions. • Limited control over professional development. • Not being valued by students or leaders. • Poor health. • Personal circumstances.

Stress: Lifestyle Survey

Stress: Lifestyle Survey

It is worth recognising the importance that our lifestyle has on our ability to cope with pressure, particularly if we have made recent changes to it. Frequently, those parts of our life which provide a balance to work activities become eroded because of perceived additional demands from our chosen occupation equally, we can find ourselves over-doing or under-doing an activity which has a direct relationship to health or physical image. Drinking, smoking, exercise and diet are obvious factors here. You and/or staff in your department should fill in the form and monitor any changes over time to support staff. This survey considers some key aspects of lifestyle.

CPD Workshop Activity: Team Review

CPD Workshop Activity: Team Review

Team Review Workshop is an activity ready-made for any team meeting. You can run in virtually any situation. It helps you build a shared understanding within a team about what’s working well, areas in need of improvement and areas of opportunity. It’s a great way to get a team ready to do some positive action planning. There’s very little facilitation involved as it’s easy for people to grasp what they have to do and why they’re doing it. It’s transparent, democratic and a great stimulator of conversation within the group. Dotmocracy, the method used for prioritization of the resulting themes, is a popular technique for voting within groups using dot stickers. It’s also known as “dot-voting”, “multi-voting” or “voting with dots”.
