Find Lesson Plans & Resources made by Teachers

Welcome to The Staff Room.

This is a space where secondary school teachers can engage in a community of practice, find and share resources and lesson plans, and chat with and ask questions of other teachers and the Trinity Access team. 

 

The site contains information about upcoming events, information booklets for teachers and other useful information for teacher in Trinity Access schools or anyone looking implement our three core practices; Pathways to College, Leadership in Learning & Mentoring.

How can we optimise the impact of our remote teaching and learning?

Teachmeet 2021

We know that Covid-19 is trying to spoil all the fun but it won’t take away our Teachmeet! The afternoon of February 4th will bring our first virtual Teachmeet to your sofas, home offices & schools. Save the date for now and more details will follow shortly.

Join us for a celebration of Connection, Innovation and Transformation.

Staffroom Chat: Connecting, Supporting and Inspiring during Remote Learning

We know how lonely and stressful remote working can be so taking an hour to connect with other like-minded teachers in our Trinity Access community can be both productive and calming. Share what’s working well for you or bring a concern and we’ll troubleshoot it together. Cups of tea, children, pets and piles of laundry are all welcome!

This is a safe space for supporting each other and finding creative ways to engage with our students. This chat will take place tomorrow, Wednesday 13th January at 3pm. Sign up here.

All attendees will receive a certificate of participation.

Connecting our Community of Practice 

During remote teaching and learning, we will be moving our community of practice activities such as staffroom chats and teacher mailers to weekly rather than fortnightly. 

Sign up for our mailer through the link below to be the first to hear what's happening.
