In this issue of the newsletter, we are putting a spotlight on BlueSky Learning. If you stopped by our stand at the ASCL Annual Conference earlier this month, you may have spoken to our team about our ever-expanding library of professional learning content for schools.

If your school, doesn’t already have a BlueSky Learning membership, talk to our team to arrange a demo of this great value solution that offers over 150 hours of high-quality, flexible CPD content for all school staff.

Take a look at some of our latest and most popular modules below, and a taster of forthcoming modules. We are also planning some live BlueSky Learning webinars, presented by top practitioners, for the summer term – watch this space for more details.

Coinciding with World Autism Acceptance Week, we have a new blog from Rebecca Leek, Executive Director of Suffolk Primary Headteachers’ Association, offering her 7 steps for better communication with Autistic students.

We are also delighted to be working with CPD expert Sue Cowley on two very special suites of modules focusing on phase-specific behaviour support, to help staff understand and manage pupil behaviour. See more information below.

All the best,

The BlueSky Team
