Programme Announced for Deputy / Assistant Head Conference on 12 and 13 October 2017

Booking is open for our annual conference. Whether you choose to attend for the full two day residential option or are interested in a focus for one day we hope you will book on. Residential places are limited so please book quickly if you require one. The attached flyer gives further information. The theme for this year is Leadership – an art of Balance and we will be exploring this through our three keynote speakers. Leadership is a continual balancing act whether it involves balancing priorities, time pressures, competing external pressures or wellbeing with workload. Our conference aims to explore some of these pressures and provide a crucial opportunity for school leaders to develop leadership skills to achieve a balance. Be inspired by our keynote speakers:

  • Mary Myatt – author of High Challenge, Low Threat
  • Matthew Hemson – Therapist, Director of the Therapeutic Media Company and an associate lecturer at UWE on the Mental Health Nursing Degree
  • Elinor Wilde – Psychological Skills Mentor working for Chimp Management (this session complements the one that was presented at the headteacher conference)

The conference is a crucial opportunity to network with colleagues and hear about leadership approaches in a supportive atmosphere.

Neil Fry from Blackhorse Primary will again be hosting a LeadMeet for us. If you are interested in participating please contact me on to share your ideas and successes with your colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you at Tortworth Court on 12 October.
