Headteachers' Network 2023/2024
After another successful year of running the Inspire Partnership's Headteacher Network, we are really looking forward to continuing to collaborate with other colleagues across the education system to share learning, professionally nourish our desire to connect and support others to flourish within their schools.
Our aim for setting up the Network in 2021 was to give leaders the opportunity to share expertise, ideas and resources with others. Since the Network's launch, we have had the privilege of hosting school leaders from 21 schools across the UK who are intent on securing better outcomes for all pupils whilst developing a strong culture of evidence informed practice within schools.
It has been fantastic to see our peers across the network connect and collaborate outside the sessions, with visits to each other's school setting and forming exemplification groups to support specific subjects within schools.
We hope to continue to strengthen and grow the network in the upcoming academic year and would welcome any enquiries from leaders who are interested in joining us.
For 2023/2024 we have already secured several passionate like-minded individuals who are devoted to transforming schools and the education and quality of teaching they provide. In total we will be hosting 5 virtual sessions and 2 in person school visits during the course of your membership.
We are delighted to confirm that our first speaker, on Tuesday 3rd October 2023 will be Jean Gross CBE.
Jean Gross has been a teacher, an educational psychologist, head of children’s services in a local authority, a charity CEO and a Visiting and Associate Fellow at three universities. She was awarded a CBE in 2011 for services to education. Jean is the author of numerous articles and best-selling books including her new book Reaching the Unseen Children - practical strategies for closing stubborn attainment gaps in disadvantaged groups. You can read Jean Gross's biography here.
We are also pleased to confirm we will be joined by John Camp OBE to speak at the first session of 2024 on 30th January.
