Autumn term 2020 - primary headteacher meetings

Wednesday 4th November 2020

The autumn term Primary Headteacher meetings will be held in November as usual but they will be online as a result of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and national lockdown. The dates and Zoom invitations are below.

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 meeting, just join using the link, and please type your name into the chat box, so that we can keep a record of attendees. This term the safeguarding forums, that usually follow the EPHA meeting, are NOT taking place.
