Spring term 2020 - termly headteacher meetings

Thursday 27th February 2020

The spring term Area Primary Headteacher meetings will be held in March - 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 the morning meeting, just turn up (leaving some time for parking) and enjoy the day.

The spring term newsletter will be circulated at the meeting.

The dates of the meetings are:

N-EAST         Wednesday 4 March                       Colchester Stadium, CO4 5UP     

SOUTH          Thursday 5 March                            Holiday Inn, Basildon, SS14 3DG

WEST             Wednesday 11 March                     Weston Homes Takeley, CM22 6PU

MID                 Thursday 12 March                         Chelmsford City Football Club, CM1 2EH

The agenda will include updates from the Local Authority and more feedback and lessons learnt from Ofsted inspections under the new Education Inspection Framework. We also have an item seeking headteachers’ views about a new CAMHS contract from March 2021.

Once you have had a chance to look at the agenda, do contact me if you have any “pre-questions” for LA officers or any of the other presenters.

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).

Last but not least, the minutes of the EPHA AGM and Executive meeting(s) held on 23rd January are now available on the EPHA website. The links are:
