Head & Governor Forums
The Headteacher & Governor Forums give school leaders the opportunity to be involved in the development of aspects of Kyra work, to engage with activities across the wider alliance, and to contribute to discussion around local and national issues. These are a powerful forum for networking, reflection and development.
Deputy Headteacher & Assistant Headteacher Forum
The main priorities of the forum are for the group to join together to network, develop practice and reflect. The vision is that the shared experience and expertise will support the whole group in improving leadership and learning within their roles.
The group will begin the year with two main aims of the meeting:
- To develop our pedagogical and theoretical understanding of leadership through shared reading.
- To develop practice in current challenges of teaching (specifically assessment, reading, spelling and handwriting).
SBM & Administrator Forums
Our first SBM & administrators’ forum took place in the Spring Term 2016, this is an opportunity to network and build working relationships with colleagues across the alliance, whilst exploring the opportunities that working collaboratively can bring.
Aims & Vision of the group:
- To establish best practice and efficient administration.
- To work together to obtain best value in all contracts and purchases wherever possible by combining collective purchasing power.
- To provide networking opportunities for administrators, bursars and SBM’s through Kyra membership.
- To establish a collective ‘voice’ to seek solutions for common concerns/issues.
Moderation Workshops – age group specified
These sessions are for practitioner, key stage and assessment leaders, senior leaders or Headteachers. Colleagues will need to bring a selection of pupils work related to the designated age group.
