Continued Professional Development

Keystone offers a range of CPD.  This can be offered in several ways:


Half day and full day courses covering a range of subjects, led by System Leaders and/or External Providers delivered in a central location


Personalised support/training through School to School support, delivered within your own school setting tailored to your needs


Personalised support/training through School to School support, delivered to a cluster of schools tailored to a collective need

We are always looking for effective ways to meet the needs of the schools in our locality. We recognise that many of our schools are spread geographically and vary in size and therefore we are keen to make CPD as accessible and cost effective as possible.

Current CPD Offer:

The Power of Music to Change Lives – In response to the release of the new national plan for music education, join Becky Beavis (Arts Director and Music Lead for Platinum Artsmark School Bourne Westfield Primary Academy and Keystone Academy Trust) for three practical, progressive sessions.

Assessment Conference

Keystone specialises in assessment and each year hold a conference in November, exploring the most up to date issues affecting primary schools in the area of assessment. In the past, we have had well known speakers such as Andy Cope, Dawn Copping, Gary Toward and Chris Henley. This is a day not to be missed, a chance to network with senior leaders, hear inspirational keynote speakers and participate in practical workshops which can be implemented in your own schools.

Our next conference takes place on Friday 24th November 2023 at Greetham Valley Conference Centre.  This year we have Rachel Johnson, Gill Jones, Giles Osborne and Will Hussey joining us as speakers.  Please click HERE to view the flyer and further details.

A great conference, packed with so much knowledge and highly experienced guest speakers, offering a unique balance between current thinking and classroom based practice. I felt I went away with renewed enthusiasm and practical strategies that can be implemented both as a Senior Leader and in the classroom. I would highly recommend it!
