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:
