Beacon School for Holocaust Education 2017-18

The Romsey School is proud to be one of 19 schools across the country to have been selected to be a Beacon School for Holocaust Education 2017-18. The Beacon School programme is led by the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education and funded by Pears Foundation, the Department for Education and the Claims Conference.

One of our key aims as a UCL Beacon School is to build a network for teachers of the Holocaust in local schools from across a variety of curriculum departments. We want to be able to facilitate thinking and practice on Holocaust education and share outstanding teaching materials and high quality professional training. We also want to hear from colleagues in other local schools and colleges about your own practice, successes and challenges, to work together, and to offer support to colleagues – deepening knowledge and understanding of this complex and deeply disturbing history.

If you are interested in joining our network, we would like to invite you to a free one day CPD course on 22nd January 2018 at The Romsey School which will be delivered by UCL staff. The event is fully funded with lunch and refreshments all included. Whether you teach the Holocaust in History, RE, English or another curriculum subject please do join us for this exceptional course.

Following the CPD day, lesson materials will be provided and we will be pleased to support you in implementing the materials, strategies or schemes presented to you into your schools.
