School Leadership Update

Full Re-opening Strategic Support 

Schools will soon be receiving a 3-part ‘bundle’ of support information linked to the re-opening of schools.  In addition, we are holding three Q & A event opportunities for schools to attend.

These will be facilitated by the School Effectiveness Team and there is no charge to attend.

Each resource package will have a corresponding Q & A session via Click Meeting and you will need to book onto each session individually.  The resource release will be over 3 weeks beginning the week of the 8th March 2021.
