Event description

Most Able Gifted and Talented (MAGT) Leaders Network Meeting (Cross –phase)

Offered to strategic leaders, MAGT and subject leaders/ coordinators, MAGT network meetings offer the following learning opportunities:

  • Developing leadership strategies to ensure that all staff are involved in challenging pupils to reach their full potential through extension work, enrichment activities or an accelerated curriculum.

  • Developing cross-phase links for an effective transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and from primary to secondary school so the most able pupils are effectively supported and continue to develop their full potential.

  • Reflecting on research based practices that focus on use of a range of data for effective identification and best provision models that have high impact.

  • Sharing best practice, key updates and documents.

MAGT network meeting on 20th June 2019, we will have a few guest speakers to speak to our MAGT leads. Dr Marcelo Staircoff, Professor Valsa Koshi and Dr Elisabeth Day have kindly offered to share their work/ research and discuss pedagogy and latest approaches with our leaders.

Guest speaker - Dr Liz Day - Rainbow Pack – Promoting evidence-based messages:
•    Instead of labelling children as ‘gifted’, we need to find their special interests or ‘gifts’ and nurture and develop them. All children have their own special gifts and talents.
•    All activities are open-ended to provide multi-level outcomes, which make them suitable for use with children of all abilities and experiences.

Guest speaker Dr Marcelo Staircoff - Creating intrinsically motivated learners  
•    The classroom as an inspirational community of enquiry
•    The curriculum through a learning to learn approach that removes barriers from learning
•    Equipping all children with the skills and dispositions of critical, creative and philosophical thinkers and successful lifelong learners (curious, collaborative, creative, resourceful, reflective and resilient) 
3.  This is what we do in our school – Sharing good practice – Themes of interest as chosen by participants
4.   Moving forward – Themes for the next year network meetings

Training objectives

  • To share good practice
