We are aware that School Leaders are working collaboratively through unprecedented challenges to keep schools safe for our children, young people and staff, and that these demands weigh heavily.
We are pleased to be working with Devon Schools Leadership Services to provide ‘Leaders Together,’ a new informal, weekly support group for School and Trust Leaders from Devon and beyond.
This is intended to be drop-in facility within a friendly, non-judgemental, safe environment to share experiences and information and to support each other.
The sessions will be facilitated by experienced leaders, Rachel Shaw, CEO of Exeter Learning Academy Trust (Primary) and Matthew Shanks, CEO of Education South West (Secondary).
