We have received many examples of some excellent practice from schools and whilst we continue to work through the Covid 19 crisis we want to regularly share this practice across the county so that we can all be heartened by the creative and innovative approaches taken by schools and continue to build a bank of ideas for you to make use of on your own site or in your hub.
Please take the time to “put your hand up” and share your experiences with us so that we can include them in our newsletters and on the Hands Up webpage.
Please email your successful work with photos and examples of children’s work that you are happy to share to email@example.com
Collation of Resources to Support Schools with Coronavirus and Home Learning
After the announcement on Wednesday 18th March about school closures we appreciate that this is a going to be a very busy couple of days and challenging times ahead.
To support you with this we have created webpages on the Em-Edsupport website with resources and ideas that schools have been sharing with us.
We understand that many of you already have plans for home learning in place but thought that it would be useful to have a place where we could collate and share ideas.
If you have any resources you would like to share please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get them put on the website.
The links are as follows

There are a limited amount of resources currently on these pages but we will share anything that schools send through to us.
We are collating resources for home learning
We are collating resources for home learning and are sharing them through the following web page.
We will add more sites in the coming days.
We will not be delivering any training events until further notice
Following the latest guidance about social distancing we will not be running any training events until further notice. You will be contacted to advise you of our plans for rearranging the events. As we have a policy to invoice after attendance at events no charges will be made to schools for cancelled/ postpone events.

Teachers as Readers Groups
Free Teachers as Readers Group.
Time to talk books, pleasure and practice!
If you are committed to developing children's desire, delight and engagement as readers join our OU/UKLA Reading Groups. Informal, friendly and supportive, teachers, librarians and support staff are welcome to join us and commit to attending all six CPD sessions across the year.
The aims of the group are:
to foster children's reading for pleasure (RfP) through supporting teachers'/members' own RfP and research-informed practice
to support the profession by building a professional community around RfP locally and online
to share teachers' resultant development work on th OU RfP website.
You will have the opportunity to explore the engaging resources on the OU Research-Rich Pedagogies free website and support members to develop their RfP pedagogy, knowledge of children's literature and the children as readers, and enable them to build reading communities within and beyond school.
There are 7 groups across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire so that you can find one close to your school or home. Sessions take place after school and details of who to contact are on each flier.
