Subject Network Groups - a place for discussion

With curriculum changes across all Key Stages, Seven Kings Teaching School Alliance are shaping and developing Subject Network Groups to help support subject leaders and responsibility holders from across our Teaching School Alliance, Redbridge and beyond. 

Seven Kings Teaching School Alliance has joined forces with NELTA and Valentines Teaching School. Our aim is:

  • To combine existing groups across the alliances to increase participation
  • To reduce the commitment on schools which belong to more than one alliance

Anybody can attend, not just schools within our alliances.There is no charge, they are free to attend. All we ask is for a commitment from you to attend to make them even more successful.

We are excited to announce the dates for our Maths subject forum to support Maths colleagues in the Alliance and beyond with the upcoming CAG process for Maths GCSE and A Level.
These meetings will enable you to discuss and share with other Maths departments how you intend to assess your students and an opportunity to standardise and moderate; a vital aspect of this process.

We will also have the opportunity to link with Maths departments in Tower Hamlets, to further share and explore our practices.
