Year Group Cluster Meetings

Year group cluster meetings are organised as an opportunity for teachers in the local area to get together to informally discuss and share good practice/issues relevant to their year group. It is hoped that the meetings will also provide opportunities to moderate and assess together.

Meetings will be run by the teachers who will set their own agendas and organise the next venue for the following meeting.

It is hoped that these groups will be successful in providing support for teachers as well as providing information for CPD requirements and training needs, something that the Yarlside Teaching School Alliance can provide in the future.


The next meetings take place on Tuesday 21st May 2019 (with the exception of Year 2 which is taking place on 4th June 2019).  All Year group meetings start at 4pm; CoG meeting starts at 5.30pm.

2019/2020 meeting dates are: Tuesday 8th October 2019, Tuesday 4th February 2020, Tuesday 19th May 2020
