Staff from both Moreton School and Aldersley High School came together to share ideas, resources and approaches in a friendly atmosphere, and were able to discuss the impact of new strategies. The teachmeet was held at Rodbaston Hall in Staffordshire and the event was attended by suppliers who were keen to show off the latest innovations in their areas all designed to aid and support teaching.

Staff from both schools demonstrated some of the techniques they have been working on throughout the year, the subject matter covered all areas of teaching and learing but some of the highlights were question walls, the use of QR codes in Sport, stretching numeracy across the whole school all the way across to creating stimulating learning environments.
