Blogging, But Not Here...

I realised recently that although I have been blogging and tweeting away, my own personal blog has been left looking rather neglected. It is not that I have had nothing to say, only that I have been saying it in other places!

For the last term we have been trialling a set of 6 iPads in the school. Our year two children have loved them and have created some excellent work with them. The results of our project can be found on the Redbridge Games Network blog.

In the middle of this trial we had a single day subject inspection by Ofsted. The subject they happened to inspect was ICT; the subject I lead. It was a fairly hectic run up to the inspection but we were all very confident of our good status in ICT and I am pleased to say that the inspector agreed. You can read a copy of the report here.

I have also been strongly involved in the fight to keep Redbridge Drama Centre from closing due to council cuts. The council plan to reduce their funding of the centre to zero over the next two financial years (a cut was already made this year) but the next cut may well prove fatal, and we are working hard to make the blinkered council acknowledge this. At the moment they seem to believe that the centre will stay open regardless of core funding from them, being cut. Sadly, this is not the case. The campaign has kept me busy blogging for The Friends of Redbridge Drama Centre and you can see our site here.

Finally, my work on the design of covers for Trifolium Books has continued and we are currently on the verge of publishing a third book. This is also the third author added to our little family. I am thoroughly enjoying the design work and it gives me a good outlet to get creative. I have created a new, fresher looking work website for myself and I will keep posting to my portfolio there.

So you can see that although my blog has not been busy, I have. I've said it before, but I will try to keep this one a little more up to date from now on.
