This evening I attended the Leeds Governors' Forum at the Civic Hall...

We had some brilliant sessions. Jenny Cooper talked about the 'Time for Play' initiative, Mike Cooper talked about the Leeds Enterprise Challenge, Dorothy Smith talked about the National Challenge schools and developing a learning entitlement and Gary Milner talked about the 14 - 19 review.

Stephen Rennie, as always, chaired the Forum really well and encouraged everyone to think positively about the opportunities we face here in Leeds. He had recently attended an excellent session led by George Munson from Leeds City Council who talked about the available funding for schools to become carbon neutral and suggested that George should be invited to the next meeting to help all schools achieve this over the next few years.

I would be very interested to have more details of the Time for Play initiative - could you post more on your blog about this?

The initiative will launch in March.
