Evolve directors John Bishop and Graham Morgan recently attended the Birmingham Leadership Conference at the Holiday Inn, Bromsgrove. The two day event was held for deputy and assistant headteachers to attend on the first day and for headteachers to join for the second day.
We were lucky enough to be invited to attend some of the forum sessions which covered a variety of topics but the most animated one centred on the Government’s plans for schools to convert to the Academy model. There was a great deal of concern over the haste that this was being pushed through and several speakers spoke with great passion against being forced down this road. Both Evolve directors gained valuable insights into the many challenges facing headteachers in the current economic situation.
