The Area Primary Headteacher meetings will be held in November- see dates and venues below. The meetings will start at 9.00 am and will include, as always, refreshments and lunch. You are likely to want to attend your local meeting, but if the date doesn’t work for you please do attend any of the other meetings. There is no need to book, just turn up (leaving some time for parking) and enjoy the day.

The autumn term newsletter will be circulated at the meeting and is published on the EPHA website.

The dates of the meetings are:

The agenda will include updates from the Local Authority, including information about the education restructure and an update on the SEND strategy.

During the morning we will consider the work and future focus of the Recruitment and Retention Strategy Group, and have an update on HR matters from Nicki Harris.

Safeguarding Forum meeting 

In the afternoon Jo Barclay will run the termly safeguarding forum meeting in each area – headteachers are very welcome to stay on and attend, and other staff from schools across the area will join the meeting (from 1.30 pm – 4.30 pm).
