Team meeting guide #2

This is a meeting guide for the second team session, which follows on from the first meeting guide. It continues to help new teams establish their overall goals

Team meeting guide #3

This guide follows on from the first two meetings, and asks the teams to establish clear smart goals which they will use as a focus point over the year. This is designed to kickstart them in creating action plans together, based on what areas they want to focus on first in the classroom.

Action plan template

This is a document, which teams can continually use throughout the year, if they choose to, which is a clear action plan template. This plan allows the team to pick a focus point and plan what steps they will take in the classroom to reach the goal set out in the plan. Each team would generally use multiple of these templates throughout the year for different focus points.
