Held in the aftermath of one of the most unpredictable General Elections for a generation; the new Government will be faced with some long term systemic issues that have remained unresolved for too long. Insufficient funding, excessive accountability, poor retention of teachers and limited school autonomy & agency all need to be addressed.
Whilst all political parties are promising to improve funding, the 2020s must be different. Building on familiar Headteachers’ Roundtable policy ideas, we aim to challenge and expose the damaging culture created by high stakes, cliff edge accountability; insufficient funding of schools and short-sighted, poorly evidenced policies through an updated and revised set of bold policy ideas. Acting together our schools can thrive but only if we are thoughtful, bold and courageous in our thinking and approach to solutions.
The summit will include keynote speeches from high-profile school leaders and public official, alongside in-depth and practical workshops which will incorporate invaluable takeaways for attendees to implement in their own institutions.
The summit is hosted by the Headteachers’ Roundtable, a think-tank which speaks with an authority rooted in our daily collective knowledge and understanding and the unique lived experience of leading our nation’s schools. Our aim is to provide an authentic voice to government to challenge or support ideas which will enable all people in our schools to thrive and flourish.
Come and join over 200 school leaders at the 4th Headteachers’ Roundtable Summitt.
