Once more it was on the road for a couple of days down south with meetings in London with the PF team and Medical Schools Council, Sonita Alleyn from the Yes Programme and at Delce Academy in Rochester. As ever it promised to be a hectic couple of days but good value for money!
Meeting with the Primary Futures team is always productive ……. we seem to get a lot done in a short time! On this occasion we also met with colleagues from the Medical Schools Council to continue our planning for ‘Medics Month’ which is due to be officially launched at the NAHT annual conference later this week http://www.naht.org.uk/welcome/naht-events/conferences/naht-annual-conference-2015/ This promises to be a really great month in October with medics from all walks of life working in partnership with schools hosting Primary Futures events…………….. details to follow on the blog and website after the May Bank weekend.
On my travels I also had a really interesting meeting with Sonita Alleyn, who I first met at a Schools North East Conference earlier this year. You can find out more about the Yes Programme by following this link. http://www.yesprogramme.co.uk/index.html I can certainly see how I would have used this really exciting resource if I was still in headship. Why not give it a look?
The next day it was off to Rochester to meet Karen White and team at Delce Academy in Rochester to have a chat about the possibility of holding our next high profile Primary Futures event at the school. What a great place with loads of interesting innovations all aimed at giving the children the very best learning opportunities. It almost made me miss being in school! You can find out more about the school here http://www.delceacademy.co.uk/ It didn’t take long to realise this would be a great venue to bring Primary Futures into Medway. A date in June has been agreed and although there is much to be done this will be a very special event led by a very enthusiastic staff.
