All Headteachers Briefings
Following consultation with all heads, calendar invites have been forwarded for the 2019/20 the all headteachers briefings. Dates are:
Tuesday 17 September 2019 – 8.30 to 9.30 a.m.
Tuesday 14 January 2020 – 8.30 to 9.30 a.m.
Wednesday 29 April 2020 – 8.30 to 9.30 a.m.
Just a reminder about what the Briefings are:
The purpose of the Briefings will be clearly and singly focussed on ensuring that all headteachers and principals get key factual messages that are relevant to all education settings in the City at the same time, from the same voice. This will ensure a clear communication pathway to our senior education leaders in the City. The sessions will be no more than one-hour long. The Briefings are not intended to be consultation or discussion forums: there are other meeting structures for this; indeed the introduction of regular Briefing sessions may free up some of the time in these other sessions for deeper debate. It may be from time-to-time, following city-wide consultation about a particular cross-phase issue, that the Briefings are the most efficient place to get final sign-off on that issue. I expect that headteachers and principals will help to shape the content of each Briefing session.
Places for each briefing can also be booked via Services to Schools.
I've also attached a schedule of headteacher meetings (including Promise Board and sub groups) for 2019/20 for information.
