Perfect for 10-15 minute form time session, assembly, PSHE or maybe a lesson starter to help with exam stress. Outlines what mindfulness is, how it works and gives links to videos and useful websites. The staff at my school benefitted from this too!

I achieved my NPQSL in July 2016 under the new combined task framework. Here is my 14 page document complete with sponsor comments. I passed in every area. My project was based on effective use of data to improve teaching and learning and also used CAT data, aspects of pastoral intervention and transition. It was a lot of hard work and having good exemplars to follow really helped me. I hope this helps you too, best of luck - its amazing when you finally achieve your NPQSL!
A simple powerpoint with nice diagrams of the respiratory system, an animation of breathing, photo of real lungs and a labelled x-ray. I've used it many times, simple, attractive and does the job for KS3 or KS4.
Photosynthesis powerpoint - nicely presented including the structure of a leaf, adaptations of the leaf, equations for photosynthesis and what a plant needs for photosynthesis to happen. Includes a label the plant cell activity. Great for KS3 and lower ability KS4.
Yep that's right. A short but fun quiz where you can play guess the poo. Which animal made the different poos? Its multiple choice. A great way to introduce the topic of biodiversity or to teach about tracks and signs and sampling animals. For KS2 or KS3 ecology. Enjoy!
How do you quantify the impact you have as a pastoral leader? How do you show Ofsted and SLT the intervention you are doing and the impact it is having? This 2 page case study template allows you to produce outstanding case studies for Ofsted/performance management purposes and allows you to monitor pastoral staff to ensure interventions are effective. I have completed the template with a hypothetical student's details so you can see how it is meant to be used. I worked as a pastoral leader for 8 years in an outstanding school.
An activity for any KS2-KS4 group promoting STEM skills, a spatial quiz activity and instructions on how to make a ring wing glider.

Great for KS2 or KS3 transition days, KS4 end of term treat lessons or as part of a Y7 induction to science course.
