Fortunately, the hot and sunny weather at the weekend decided to hold out a little longer for my meeting at Gloucester Docks/Gloucester Quays with Paul and Max from C&T (http://www.candt.org/).
Well, today, I had my Online Safety Accredited Assessor’s ‘hat’ on.
It was off to Sir Thomas Rich’s School (STRS) (https://strschool.co.uk/), one of Gloucestershire’s grammar schools, early this morning to meet with Debbie Brake, Assistant Head Teacher and Teaching School Lead. The purpose of my visit was to share outreach opportunities, discuss my recent, local consultancy activities that have been particularly successful and consider how I might be able to support their future developments.
I think Debbie was feeling a little overwhelmed an hour and a half later!
Despite it being the Gold Cup at Cheltenham, a Friday and endless roadworks on the M5 with speed restrictions in place, my journeys to and from the NEC were bearable.
It was not Young Voices calling this time around, but The Education Show (http://www.education-show.com/)!
A hugely intensive, but highly informative and very thought-provoking day.
