This talk will examine spelling as a skill and also as a developmental process. It will explore reasons why children struggle with spelling and what can be done to overcome these difficulties. It will also examine strategies to aid spelling development. Using case studies, it will show how to detect spelling difficulties and suggest methodologies

Expected Outcomes: Participants will have an increased awareness of spelling as a skill and how spelling develops. They will be able to examine children's writing and detect strengths and weaknesses and build up a profile of the child's spelling development. It will also lead participants to reflect on their own classroom practice and how the quality of errors determines spelling improvement.

Post Primary Principals, Deputies, and Teachers with Responsibility for Health and Safety, and Board of Management Members

To prepare schools to make the best use of the revised Guidelines for Managing Safety, Health and Welfare in Post Primary Schools, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) will provide briefings to Principals, Deputies, teachers with responsibility for health and safety, and for Boards of Management in each of the ATECI regions. The Guidelines provide a step-by-step account of putting together a safety statement for schools.

The session will show participants how to use the Guidelines to review and update a Post Primary School Safety Statement, carry out risk assessments and ensure a school is complying with its legal obligations regarding safety, health and welfare. As well as presenting an overview of the revised Guidelines, the session will allow participants to explore in a practical way the various templates available in the Guidelines. The session will also explore simple and practical steps that a school might take when using the Guidelines as a resource for managing safety, health and welfare.

Please note that as this is a locally organised initiative, there is no substitute cover provided.
