Due to lockdown and COVID there are fewer opportunities for students to participate in exercise. The PE dept are using MSteams to encourage Chobham students to do a HIIT session every Monday night. The session is then uploaded to the Chobham YouTube channel. https://t.co/4Xcdgqpvb6

Today our Year 12 students were involved in a Virtual Vlogstar workshop through Jack Petchey. This workshop was a fantastic opportunity for students to practise their ‘Vlogging’ skills in support of their passion for media. Very grateful to have arranged this during Lockdown. https://t.co/4l9qXeWbqW

Kymari and Adrian both like how they are able to challenge themselves to work harder but increasing the length of the circuit. Kieron likes how they have to work together and agree on the correct movements. https://t.co/r9DCJYsMTk

The models also helped the students understand the meaning of using models and their limitations, in order to explain or learn a particular concept (in this case cells). This is a project based demonstrating Art and Science skills in STEAM. https://t.co/S54bUfUv8b

These are from my Year 7s using their Arts skills to make 3D science models of Cells (animal and plant cells). The students researched and applied their theoretical knowledge on building these models. The models are made by recyclable materials that students found at home. https://t.co/QfD12VOggC

Curriculum Advisors

At Chobham we want our students to be as involved as possible in helping us to improve the quality of teaching and learning at the school.  One important way we do this is through our Curriculum Advisors initiative.  Curriculum Advisors are made up pf students from Years 7 to 10.  Each of them is allocated to a subject area where they are given responsibility for commenting upon the quality of teaching and learning taking place and suggesting how it might be improved.

This is a very responsible position for which our students have to be well trained.  All have received training in how to observe lessons and in how to give effective feedback.

By communicating their own observations and representing wider student views on teaching and learning, the Curriculum Advisors really help us to make beneficial changes.  They build good partnerships with their departments and give feedback to teachers on lessons and on more general issues raised by the student body.  We have seen how this engagement helps our Curriculum Advisors to develop their confidence, critical thinking skills and ability to communicate effectively.

Our Curriculum Advisors also work closely with Transport for London on a project called the Youth Ambassadors Programme.  This project builds on important key skills such as public speaking and researching.  The programme improves students’ skills in areas which employers deem to be essential for the workplace as well as allowing the students to demonstrate their individual talents.

Curriculum Advisors Programme 2019-20

  1. Introduction

Curriculum Advisors (CAs) are a key element of the Academy’s self-evaluation processes.

These are students whose role is to comment upon the quality of teaching and learning at the Academy and to propose ideas for improvement. To ensure that their contribution to school life is valuable, CAs are given high quality training and structured opportunities to give their views. This year, I will be overseeing the Curriculum Advisor programme.

  1. Recruitment and Training

 

  1. There are about 40 CAs from Years 7 to 10
  2. I have met with the students and they are all keen volunteers
  3. CAs have been selected from students of all academic ability levels
  4. CAs will be given training in the following areas before beginning their role;
    • Interviewing skills
    • Lesson observation
    • Presentational skills
    • Giving effective feedback
    • Making evidence based judgements/selecting evidence
    • Collecting reliable evidence from other subjects.

Training will be delivered at regular intervals throughout the school year. All trained CAs will be given a lapel badge to wear in school. The CA Co-ordinator (the Principal) is responsible for organising and delivering training.

  1. Role and Evaluation

The CA Co-ordinator will liaise with departments to ensure that an annual programme of CA activities is in place. This should include:

  • Reporting on the CAs own experiences in lessons and with other aspects of teaching and learning such as homework
  • Seeking and reporting on the experiences and views of peers
  • Lesson observations
  • Reporting on the effectiveness of marking
  • Acting as consultants on proposals to change the Academy’s teaching and learning processes.

 

CAs will report regularly to the CA Co-ordinator at timetabled meetings. The CA Co-ordinator will communicate issues raised with the relevant DoLs and Subject Leads.

CAs will also present regularly to middle leaders and separately each term to the Academy Leadership Group (ALG).

  1. The intention of the CA programme is that positive change results from the CAs’ findings and subsequent discussions. Action points will be agreed in meetings with the CA Co-ordinator, DoLs, Subject Leads and ALG. The implementation of these points will then be overseen by the CA Co-ordinator and reviewed in ALG.

Each summer term, there will be a review of the CA programme with students and in ALG meetings. At this point in the year we will evaluate the impact the programme has made upon school improvements and make adjustments as necessary.
