This afternoon I attended Headteacher Forum at the West Park Centre...

It was a really useful session with a great group of headteacher colleagues. Alan Key, headteacher at Abbey Grange CE High School, chaired the session and we had a series of really good presentations... Mary Armitage and Jackie Goodwin talked about the work we are doing to implement the Common Assessment Framework, Dirk Gilleard talked about the developing e-Learning Strategy and Rob Hodgson talked about our e-Individual Learning Plan initiative.

Sessions like this make me realise how much is going on and how difficult it must be to simply keep up with it all if you are a headteacher wrestling with SATs, the standards agenda, workforce reform, pay and grading, attendance, behaviour, health and well-being, governors and everything else the DCSF choose to throw at us.

I sometiimes wonder why we keep on turning up and then I remember... it's simply the best job in the world!
