Event Details



Teaching INSET day for all Surrey Arts teachers.

This INSET will be focussed on developing teaching skills.  All Surrey Arts teachers are welcome to attend this day of training.  Annualised hours teachers may claim 3 hours work for attending the morning of the INSET and are invited to stay for the entire day.  All teachers who normally work for us on a Tuesday are expected to attend.  There will be no Surrey Arts teaching taking place during the school day on this date.  

When to arrive:  We will be on site from around 8am.  Please arrive from 8.30 for coffee before the first session.  


Please sign in with our staff at the entrance of the building upon arrival.  Name badges will be provided.   Parking is available on site.  

Morning Training Session:  This will take place with all teachers in a session led by educator Andy Hind.  We will be workshopping ideas about good teaching in groups throughout the morning.  There will a seating plan for this session so please sit with the group you have been allocated. 

Afternoon Training Sessions / Forums:  When you book your place you will be given a choice of sessions to attend in the afternoon.   You should be able to put down your preference for each session.   We will then assign places nearer the date.  

SMT Open Surgery

Over lunch and during coffee members of the Senior Management Team will be available for an Open Surgery.  This will be an informal ‘drop-in session’ for staff to talk with senior management, discuss and share ideas, views, problems and solutions.   You do not need to pre-book a slot.  The surgery is not intended for one to one meetings, or confidential matters  (teachers are free to request a formal time to do this). Instead, teachers will be able to discuss any issues in groups, during this time.

Paritor Teacher Live Taster

During lunch and throughout the day Claire Craig and Miriam Hepburn will be on hand to show the new online Teacher Live system, which can provide a means of maintaining your registers electronically, as well as other features.
