Impact on practice

The course immediately asks questions of you, as a school, that demand follow-up. Following the meeting, we have: (i) Identified left-handed pupils; (ii)Looked at the provision for left-handed pupils in our school in relation to physical resources and teaching strategies; This is just the start - as we only had the training a couple of weeks ago! We may well be looking at being involved in action research in the future such was the interest from this course.
Quality of teaching

Thanks to Mark Stewart at Left 'n' Write, the staff at Cherry Orchard Primary School were given a wake-up call about the needs of one of our hidden vulnerable groups - left-handed pupils. With thought-provoking facts and statistics, practical activities that put you in the shoes (or hands) of our pupils in the classroom (as well as making you re-evaluate what you might have thought you knew about yourself!) and a wide offering of hints, tips and immediate strategies borne out of years of personal experience, this was one of the most useful 60mins of CPD we have had for a long time. Mark is a warm and personable presenter...yet his messages are clear and deserve to be heard.
Venue, catering, facilities/accomodation and booking

N/A - venue was our own school.
Any other comments? Would you recommend this to other teachers? Headteachers / Teachers / Schools....don't get LEFT in the dark any longer about the issues surrounding your left-handed pupils. They are more prevalent than you think. They are more urgent than you think. They are more critical to the future of our children than you think. Do the right thing...think left!
