Heronsgate Professional Development for Primary School Teachers

At Heronsgate Primary School, we are passionate about enabling children and staff to realise their potential.

We consider high quality professional development to be vital in raising standards in teaching and ultimately the progress of all our pupils and would like to share our approaches and practice with all schools. 

Our ‘outstanding’ training programme which ‘inspires’ staff (Ofsted) is delivered by experienced practitioners at our Thamesmead campus and we are proud to be an Apple Regional Training Centre.

Feedback from past Heronsgate Training Courses

“Thank you so much for your fantastic training today.  You gave us so many great strategies with real life examples and we will definitely be putting them into practice!”

“It has made me excited to teach science again and inspired me to provide the best opportunities for my class to learn science. I’m so glad I was able to attend and I will definitely be telling my teacher friends about it.”

“Totally practical and directly applicable.  A most melodic whistle stop tour of some excellent apps and features.”

“Fab! Really engaging, felt like I have learnt lots of new skills and had fun at the same time! Thank you.”

“This training has opened my mind to many ways it will impact on my teaching.  The creativity is endless, it will impact children’s confidence, relationships and more importantly their learning.”

“Another fantastic course from the trainer.  Excellent ideas to get children motivated, specifically girls.  Interesting to see how Science can be recorded in a more purposeful way for the children.”

“It was fantastic and very useful, especially the modelling. I will explicitly model comprehension skills more.”

“Very useful and interesting training! Gave me a lot of practical ideas to feedback to staff and make Science more inspiring and child-led.”

“A really enjoyable and useful day! I have now got some really good and practical ideas for explorative lessons.  This includes some really engaging starters, all of which I will use.”

“Really fun and interactive. I will do more investigations and ideas of making difficult/seemingly boring topics e.g. rocks fun.”

“SO FANTASTIC!! I’m really inspired and refocussed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

“Really fantastic- this school has given the most relevant and consistent training I have experienced in my NQT year. Thank you so much!!”
