Welcome to this week's Friday Bulletin

We are looking forward to welcoming our new Director of Children’s Services, Sally Hodges, who will be joining us officially on Monday 18th February. There will be opportunities for you to meet Sally at Head Teacher meetings and briefings over the coming months.

We apologise for the issue with the link in last week’s article on the budget; we have reprinted the article this week with an active link.

Following the well -attended Chief Executive’s briefings held last week, we have had very positive feedback and good engagement regarding forming a consultation group of Head Teachers and Chief Executives to represent education professionals across Northamptonshire as we prepare for the change to unitary status.

Further details will be published after half term regarding the remit of the group and the formal procedure for getting involved.

Primary School Head Teacher Representative

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join the Virtual School Advisory Panel (VSAP). The panel provides the Virtual School with a strategic view, acts as a critical friend and ensures accountability to improve the educational outcomes for children in the care of Northamptonshire County Council.

We would particularly welcome applications from those Head Teachers with an interest in previously-looked after children.

In addition to attending six locally based meetings over an academic year, there is an expectation that all its members will be actively committed to the success of the Virtual School and the corporate parenting role.

If you would like an informal chat about the role, please contact panel member, Cath Kitchen (Head of Hospital and Outreach), on (01604) 662250 or CKitchen@northamptonshire.gov.uk

To apply please complete the application form on the Virtual School Bulletins section of the website and return to the chair, Councillor Fiona Baker  fbaker@northamptonshire.gov.uk by Friday 14th March 2019.
 

3. Budget Information


FAO:    All
From:  Children First Northamptonshire

Dear Colleagues
 
I just wanted to give you notice of our final set of budget proposals which we published.  These final proposals follow our public consultation and scrutiny process and also the Government’s announcement to allow us to raise more Council Tax for the next financial year.
 
Today’s announcements will include a proposal to raise Council Tax by 4.99%. If this is approved this would mean we would still have the second lowest like-for-like county tax rate in the country, while at the same time provide greater financial security for us as a County Council and also for any new Unitary Councils which are established.
 
The increase amounts to an additional 75p to £1 a week for the 70% of county residents who live in Bands A-C properties. This would raise an additional £5.8m for council. This additional income will be used to:
 
  • Provide greater financial resilience
  • Provide a more sustainable financial foundation for any future Unitary Councils.
  • Provide extra £475,000 to permanently reinstate the previous winter gritting and winter maintenance of roads
  • Allow us to stop plans to charge for community use of schools by uniformed and community groups
  • Provide an additional £1.2m for Children’s Services
  • Reverse plans to charge for higher specification community equipment
  • Provide an extra £673,000 towards independent social care placements
 
 In total the savings total for 2019/20 is £41m against a net budget of £418m.
 
This will be discussed by Cabinet on February 14 before being debated at Full Council on February 21.
 
Please note that the meeting is being held in the Room 15, County Hall and will commence at 10am.  You can access the documents using the link: Cabinet - 14 February 2019
 
Thank you for your continued support and as always I’m happy to discuss any element of these proposals.

4.   School Open Letter

Open Day Letter

5.  Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) and 
     Video Enhanced Reflective Practice
    (VERP)


FAO:     Heads, SENCOS and Family Support Workers
From:   Childrens First Therapy Services

VIG is an evidenced based technique that uses short video clips of positive interaction to help those involved understand successful aspects of their communication with others. It can be used for developing or repairing relationships. It actively engages the client to identify their best hopes for their relationship/ what they would like to change and offers support to work towards these goals. There is evidence that VIG contributes to sustainable change. It has a growing international evidence base. VIG has been established in Northamptonshire for over 10 years. It has been used effectively to support positive change in parent child relationships and within school environments for adult child relationships. It has commonly been a part of support plans developed as part of an Early Help Assessment.
 

Similarly, VERP uses video clips to support individuals or groups to develop their interaction skills in their work, through guided reflection on their chosen video clips of day-to-day practice. This is a strengths-based approach where professionals are helped to identify and build on their present skills and to set themselves their next goal or challenge. The focus of VERP is for the professional to reflect upon their own practice and take ownership over their professional development. This has been used with a wide range of professionals including teachers, teaching assistants and early years’ practitioners.

NICE guidelines recommend video feedback methods for improving parental sensitivity and attachment especially in the early years and for those at risk of entering care.

Both interventions can now be commissioned through the Children First Therapy Services team. Please see: https://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/children-families-education/children-first-therapy-services/Pages/default.aspx

For further information regarding VIG and VERP, please see the Association for Video Interaction Guidance UK website: https://www.videointeractionguidance.net/

6. Maths Conference and Follow-up Workshop
    opportunities


FAO:   All Head Teachers and Maths Teachers
From:  Children First Northamptonshire

Developing maths mastery was a key part of the fully-booked Teach Maths Northants Conference on 13th February. It was a huge success with keynote speakers delivering inspirational sessions for early years, primary and secondary colleagues.

We would like to thanks the Regional Schools Commissioner and the DfE, the Enigma and East Midlands South Maths Hubs, Brooke Weston and Pen Green Teaching Schools, the Harris Federation and colleagues at the LA for making this partnership event happen. Further follow up opportunities are being planned and will be included in future Friday Bulletins.

10.  Northamptonshire Collaborative Reading
     Project (NCRP) – Open Day events


FAO:   Headteacher/Principals, Literacy Subject Leaders/KS2 teachers
From:  Learning, Skills & Education
 

We are holding 2 open day events as part of the NCRP Reading Project this term as detailed below:

Developing the learning environment and sharing good practice in the teaching of reading – open days with guided tours of lead/project schools

Date/time             27 February 2019 – 9am-12pm
                             26 March 2019 - 9am-12pm
Audience             Headteachers/Subject leaders/KS2 teachers

Cost per person   £75

The purpose of these events is to celebrate the work schools have been doing as part of the NCRP project so far and share good practice in the teaching of reading, particularly in KS2. Each school has designed and shaped their own approach to the teaching of reading, using elements of the NCRP project and adapting this to suit the needs of their pupils. Further information about the schools opening, including their context and approach to the teaching of reading, can be found on the links below.  Headteachers and subjects leaders who are driving improvements in reading are invited to attend, as well as KS2 teachers who would benefit from this. We would recommend that, wherever possible, delegates undertake the visit alongside a colleague so that they are able to reflect on practice seen together and engage in professional discussions about their own practice and any potential areas for development.
