In WGSP, we are great believers in keeping up to date on current issues, sharing good practice and resources. This week was no exception.
On Tuesday, 22 members of The Office (our network for SBMs, finance and admin staff) met to hear updates and share good practice on:
- Restructuring – What You Need to Know!
- School Admissions
- What’s New in Data Protection
- Early Help- What’s it all about?
The morning also provided great network opportunities as well as time to catch up on each other’s news.
On Thursday, 23 heads from our partnership and (because we like to share good things), five heads / SLT members from schools across Gloucestershire, met to listen to Jamie Pembroke providing “Another Update on Nearly Everything!” which was excellent in pulling together all the latest information on accountability. The rest of the day concentrated on an in-depth look at the new Education Inspection Framework and its implications for schools and the new processes involved – very thought provoking and initially scary until we got our heads around it (no pun intended!). We also had time to share thoughts and experiences as it’s great to talk.
We intend where possible, to continue opening up our Partnership Network Meetings to heads from outside our partnership as it provides great CPD for headteachers. So if you would like to join us, get in touch!
