At the last Chairs’ Strategic Briefings, we hosted well over 100 schools leaders in each session and received fantastic feedback. During the briefing on 5th March, we heard from experts about Covid-19, Connected Learning and Assessment and on 28th May we received updates on HR matters and focus talks on Ofsted and Wellbeing.

Thanks to those who joined us and offered their questions to the panel, facilitating a valuable discussion which covered topics many schools and governors find challenging.

If you were not able to join us, you can access a recording of the March session here (Sorryyoumissedit!) and see the slides here. You can also see a recording of the November 2020 session here (password:  shameimissedit) which focussed on evolving Ofsted practices and visits, as well as pay and performance and staff well-being and see the slides here.
