Lead schools have been recruited for each subject and will work alongside our Leader of Learning for non-core subjects. There are up to three lead schools per subject, each with responsibility for one of the three hubs in ERW.
The Leader of Learning for non-core subjects, working with the lead teachers will establish effective networks to support all non-core subjects at GCSE and compliment networking arrangements where they currently exist in local authorities. This will allow heads of department to share and develop the good practice that already exists within schools.
There are designated HWB networks available for all teachers within ERW to join. This will give teachers the opportunity to share the most recent subject developments through the discussion board. Working groups will also be set up to create and develop schemes of work and teacher resources. These will be shared on the subject network for each specific subject.
Support for the new GCSE specifications is currently available in the following subject areas: Drama, Art, Physical Education, Geography, History, Religious Education and Business.
