A massive thank you and a heartfelt apology
Good Morning All
I hope you had a good weekend. As the ‘mad dash to Bethlehem’ moves up a gear, I thought I would update you on where we are with Families of Schools. Many of you have kindly emailed me with the links that you have made and the school improvement activities you are sharing. Wonderful and thank you.
I am busy contacting schools with capacity to help those of you who asked for it and matching schools together. If you asked for help and haven’t heard anything yet I am onto it! I am also trying to match schools for the SSIF2 reading project bid using Families of Schools data as far as possible. I am hoping to arrange a meeting for all NLEs who have volunteered to support the project early in the new term as well as all partner schools. Dates will be organised next week and I will send them out before we break up I promise.
We are planning a KS4 Families of Schools event in early February which will be free to every Secondary School in the city. We will get the date out asap as the success of the event depends on everyone joining in.
In the meantime I will leave you with this thought from Abraham Lincoln:
“I want it said by those who knew me best that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow”.
Have a good week and you know where I am if you need anything
