Session details:

9.00am - 9.45am - I Will Survive………

In this opening session David Cameron will take an overview of the challenges that school leaders currently face and emphasise why it is so important that we look at how we can meet these. It will include lots of practical advice, approaches and strategies.

That will lead in to a series of short focussed workshops addressing some key issues for school leaders

9.45am- 10.45am - Handling Difficult Conversations

It seems that we are getting involved in more and more difficult conversations with parents and with staff. This session will give you the opportunity to get some advice on how to deal with these and to share some of your own experience and approaches

11.05am- 11.45am - If “Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast”, How Do We Get Our School Culture Right?

We are continually told how important culture is but we don’t always follow up what that means for our practice as school leaders. This workshop session aims to put that right

11.50am - 12.40pm - Can We Meet The Behaviour Challenge?

Behaviour and how we respond to it is one of the most important challenges that we face and one of the most controversial. This session will look at the current and, often, contradictory, advice that we get and ask how we establish our own policies and strategies

12.40pm - 1.00pm - The Big Finish
