Excellence & enjoyment. The government's latest dictat - intended to put fun back into school. It sounds very good (ie what teachers used to do prior to the intro of literacy hour etc!)Should be lots of info (and the policy itself) available on the govt website.

I'm not a teacher, btw, but am a primary school governor - but others may well have more informed help for you.

New framework for inspection: shorter and no notice given. Workforce remodelling. Try \link http://www.governornet.co.uk/index.cfm?topicAreaId=13&CFID=4697421&CFTOKEN=58158653\governornet{} or the TES chat forums .

Remodelling of schools I think. I am sure Dottee went on a course on this this week - might be worth trying to find ehr and sounding her ut!

This is the stuff I mean, but I am sure Dottee can tell you more.

Why are you asking, by the way, Littleweed? Interview? Assigment? general interest?

soyabean Tue 13-Jul-04 18:19:21

Just idly wondering, not interrogating, sorry

sorry for the long delay - got caught up in nappies and pooh and vomit. I was asking cos I had my first teaching job interview for a few years....... but didn't get it so back to nappies for me for a while!! thanks anyway for all your help - but why do i only ever think of my clever answers afterwards??!!
