School cluster managers in East NewcastleTarget Outcomes: (add/amend as required)Raise awareness of CNE (who are we, establish credibility, describe our work in general, give basic info about specific services we offer)Generate discussion about audience needsIdentifyhow CNE could meet those needsNext step- how do we take this forward - who needs to follow up with who (this would usually go back to HoS at CNE for discussion - can we generate specific leads to follow up (get names, job titles, phone numbers, email and name of the referrer (Have we got enough info to be able to follow up with a named person eg. ‘I was speaking to x… who asked me to phone about y… specific problem in school(s) and they asked me to get in touch with information about our ….. Programme(s).’ Use the feedback sheets that go with the presentation. Please return these to david.vandervelde@children-ne.org.ukContent: Depending on time constraints - it is good practice to begin by asking the participants to introduce themselves. What are the issues they face? This will help you focus on the issues that are important and get dialogue going so that at the end of the presentation they will engage.Following the info in the schools brochure which you will give out at the end.
  • What will be covered today. Is there anything else that people would like to hear about ? Do you want people to ask questions as we go along or wait until the end? What are the issue they face? What kinds of schools are they working in? What are their roles?
  •  National Equality Panel**, set up by the government in 2008. According to the study, Britain is more unequal than it was a generation ago; one measure of inequality it examines suggests that, by 2007-8, Britain had the same level of income inequality as existed in the post-war years.Described by the Prime Minister as "sobering", the report states that "it matters more in Britain who your parents are than in many other countries" and describes the importance of "the long arm of people's origins in shaping their life chances... literally from cradle to grave." Among the areas covered in the report is education up to, and beyond, GCSEs. In particular:There is a large difference in 'school readiness' and vocabulary scores between three year old children from the poorest 20% of families and those from the richest.This vocabulary gap is even wider by the time children are five.There is a strong link between living in a disadvantaged area and having special educational needs, learning disabilities and/or social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.The attainment gap between children receiving free school meals and those who do not continues to widen until they reach 14 (before narrowing very slightly up to GCSEs).Eligibility for free school meals is the single biggest factor hindering a student's performance at GCSE.***Even disadvantaged students that do perform well are less likely to go onto higher education at all, let alone to a Russell Group university.Once at university, they are less likely to achieve a first or 2:1.Consequently, more work is needed "to improve the educational attainment of poor children in general, and substantially to improve the staying on rates after 16 of low-income children in particular."
