We are living through challenging and shifting times. The conference aims to support school leaders in considering the implications of current education policy, local and national issues, and give leadership teams time to reflect upon the consequences for their schools and communities, and how best to respond to prepare our young people for the future. We encourage leadership teams to attend to create a dedicated thinking space to formulate plans and strategies to deal effectively with the rapidly and significantly changing educational landscape.
