Code: ECTSA/21/0066 Devon School Business Managers Association Annual Conference

The DSBMA is delighted to be hosting this year’s conference, following the success of our sell out event in 2019.

Once again, we are very grateful for the support received from our sponsors and we look forward to learning more about them over the course of the conference. This year we are coming to grips with the impact of COVID-19 and a series of major reforms to education, with the inevitable task of trying to achieve more with less. At the same time our Local Authority services are diminishing rapidly as a result of tighter budgets and community cohesion between local schools becomes more challenging, as schools join a range of multi academy trusts.

How are you going to manage this volume of change? Building our resilience in these times of change is critical to our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of our schools. We are going to hear from a range of outstanding experts, who are going to inspire and help us develop our strategies. Importantly, in coming together at the conference, we are also reminded of the importance of supporting one another and sharing what we know.

Code: ECTSA/22/0027 Literacy Conference 2022

Book your place at the following link: https://forms.gle/iWB9RGF9Rw3rCP398

Our aim is to enable school leaders, alongside Primary and Secondary teaching practitioners - or leads - to explore a range of approaches to whole school literacy development and to also consider relevant and current appropriate classroom-based approaches. There will be opportunities to learn from notable professionals in keynotes by David Didau, John Tomsett and Helen Prince and to develop understanding of pedagogical approaches from experts during the breakout sessions/workshops.

Programme includes:
• Keynote speeches from leading national figures in education
• Choice of inspiring workshops from national and regional experts
• Networking opportunities with school leaders
• Exhibition from education sponsors
• Buffet lunch and refreshments

Keynote speakers:

David Didau - Building a Reading Culture
The book is in a death battle with the phone. Fewer children report enjoying reading or choosing to read regularly than ever before. Does this matter? And if it does, what can we do about it? How can school communities reposition reading as important and valued enough to spend time on instead of all the other options available? And what can teachers do to support students whose reading fluency is a barrier to accessing the curriculum?

David Didau is Senior Lead Practitioner for English at Ormiston Academies Trust and a freelance writer, blogger, speaker, trainer and author. He started his award-winning blog, The Learning Spy, in 2011 to express the constraints and irritations of ordinary teachers, detail the successes and failures within his own classroom, and synthesise his years of teaching experience through the lens of educational research and cognitive psychology. Since then he has spoken at various national conferences, has directly influenced Ofsted and has worked with the Department for Education to consider ways in which teachers' workload could be reduced.

John Tomsett - What is a Rich, Challenging, Coherent 0-19 English Curriculum?
In this session John Tomsett discusses what he has learnt about the English curriculum, from Early Years to A Level, from his work on the HUH-project with Mary Myatt, where they have interviewed key English curriculum designers about shaping the English curriculum.

John Tomsett taught for 33 years in state schools and was a teaching headteacher for 18 years. Until August 2021 he led Huntington School in York. He writes a blog called This Much I Know, and has written extensively about school leadership. He has previously published six books and is currently working with Mary Myatt on a Primary version of “Huh” and they have plans for “Huh: SEND” and “Huh: Alternative Provision”.

John maintains that the best thing for our students is that our teachers are happy, healthy, well-qualified, highly motivated, hard-working, well-trained experts; consequently, he believes we should put staff first.

He is now engaged in supporting the next generation of school leaders, with a resolute focus upon improving the quality of teaching & learning, and developing the school curriculum. The erstwhile leader of Huntington Research School in York, he believes that an evidence-informed approach is central to successful school improvement.

Helen Prince - Creative Talk, Resilient Speakers
To express ourselves, we have to know ourselves - know what we love, what is important to us, what frightens or consoles, inspires or repels us. As teachers and leaders, we strive to elicit these building blocks of expression that motivate learning and underpin daily classroom talk. This keynote will explore the concept of creative talk and ways to build resilient speakers, confident to express their ideas, hopes and emotions.

An English teacher, senior leader and adviser, Helen has led English, literacy, and drama provision for over 20 years. Her work benefits from time spent as English lead for the UK’s largest MAT, Ofsted Inspector, acting head, author, trainer, and speaker. To date, Helen has worked with over 300 school leadership teams across the UK focusing on vocabulary, literacy, and English.

Helen provides vocabulary and oracy training for many trusts and conferences, including Whole Education, OUP and ASCL. She is host of the ‘Word-Up’ podcast series for Oxford Education and her three vocabulary books, ‘Get It Right: Boost Your Vocabulary’ have recently been published. Fuelled by her passion to address the word gap, Helen has recently launched a series of apps to boost vocabulary: ‘Chatterstars’.
