Sheffield Complementary Schools March 2018 Meeting

On Monday 12th March, 17 people from 12 different Complementary Schools attended a meeting to launch the new Sheffield Complementary Schools Network. People spent time getting to know one another and more about each others’ schools, and expressing their opinions about what the Network should do, how often it should meet, and who should be invited. The main purpose of the meeting was to ascertain what participants wanted to achieve by setting up the Network and what benefits they hoped the formation of the Network would bring to local Complementary Schools and their students.



Sheffield Complementary Schools February 2018 Meeting

On Monday, February 5th 2017, 32 people involved in running  Complementary Schools across Sheffield attended a lively training session in the Harmer Building of Sheffield Hallam University.

The session began with staff from Sheffield Hallam University’s Widening Participation and Outreach team talking about their work.

Carl Richardson from Objective Create then delivered training to representatives from the different schools on how to set up and maintain their individual web pages on this website.

After that, all Complementary Schools were presented with 2 hard copies and one electronic version of the new Activities and Resources pack produced by Languages Sheffield. The pack is designed to support the teaching of any Heritage Language to primary school age children (see ‘Resources’ page).

Finally, everyone was informed of the soon-to-be launched Sheffield Complementary Schools Network (see Sheffield Complementary Schools Network page).
