Holiday Discounts for RE teachers

Oh to work in a profession where one can take one’s holiday at any time – and thus avoid paying top prices because you have to take your break during the school holidays.

Fortunately this problem can now be resolved. Not by taking your holidays any time you want, of course, but because there is a way of getting a discount during the school holidays.

We offer a range of tours and excursions during the school breaks which are specially designed for teachers.

And because of the success of our recent promotions we are now able to offer a further 10% discount for teachers on all our holidays.

You can see all the holidays that we offer on the link given below. Then, to claim a 10% saving, you will need to call us on 0844 324 8557, quoting the reference ‘TEACH’.

All you will need to do is provide us with the name and address of the school that you work for and your position within it.

So should you fancy Austria at Easter, Bruges during half-term, Rome in July or Christmas on Lake Como, these are all available, and all without any price hikes because you are going during the school holidays.

Our luxury coaches (with extra legroom and rear lounge) run from almost 500 regional pick up points and include all the extras that you could desire.

A research project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation is looking for 50 schools

The Success for All Foundation in partnership with the Institute for Effective Education at the University of York is currently recruiting 50 primary schools to take part in a National Research Project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation.

All the schools will have results in English and Maths which are below 70% for Level 4 and be experiencing challenging circumstances.

If selected, Success for All will work with your school to implement the SFA programme over a two year period. All training and resources will be provided free of charge.

Using a pedagogy based on co-operative learning, Success for All has been particularly effective in schools serving large proportions of disadvantaged children or where there is underachievement.

The programme places the development and implementation of high quality teaching, learning and support at the heart of what it does, embedding literacy across the curriculum with reading as the cornerstone. This research will provide valuable information to educators and policy makers about effective teaching and learning practices in England.
