Webinar: Advice for the current times

Join Andrew Hammond and Guy Dudley for a discussion on the issues facing school leaders today.

In this session, we’ll be looking at:

  • School Funding: We’ll examine the government’s latest school funding announcements and consider what this will mean for schools in the coming years.
  • Ofsted: We’ll look at the implications of Ofsted’s recent announcement that it will be ‘accelerating’ its inspection timetable, as well as discussing Ofsted’s overall approach to inspections in the coming months.
  • Primary statutory assessment: We’ll look at the government’s approach to primary assessment and performance data this academic year, and consider the concerns that are being raised by school leaders.
  • Secondary qualifications: We’ll consider the decisions around exams and the contingency arrangements for 2022, as well as the issues around performance data.

Many of these topics have been supported by wider advice pieces that can be found in Pathway’s Advice Hub where you will have access to an online library of information, advice and guidance to support you in your professional role and your continuing professional and personal development and empowerment.

This session will also be available on-demand, please register to receive the recording.
