Initial Teacher Training - Update

School Direct

The application process for the September 2014 start will open on
November 1st 2013.

The West Essex School Direct Partnership consists of eight schools,
Davenant Foundation School, as the lead school has requested the following
subjects from School Direct:-









Computer Sc.


We are expecting changes to the amounts awarded for the salary &
bursary in October by School Direct and it could be that the list of subjects
available also changes at the same time once this year's statistics have been
evaluated and digested.

An Information and Recruitment Evening will be held at Davenant
Foundation School on 13th November 2013 at 7.00 p.m. All of the schools are particularly keen to
recruit Teaching Assistants and Cover Supervisors in the future, who have
degrees and who will use this experience as a preparation to apply to School
Direct. Information on this "route" will
also be available at this event.

Please see the Training and Development section (Initial Teacher
Training) of the Davenant Foundation School website for more information and a
list of the schools in the West Essex School Direct Partnership.



Core Business of Essex Schools

The Association Of Secondary Headteachers in Essex has agreed a statement about the Core Business of Essex Schools. It is a statement
of what we believe is important in all our schools across the county. The full document can be found in the 'Information' section or by clicking here.

Roy Smith

We are sad to learn of the death of former Headmaster, Roy Smith. He died at his home in Marlow aged 84 and had been Head at the school until 1975. He will be remembered by past students with great affection.

We send our condolences to his family.
