Building excellence in your school:
Online networking & CPD for primary schools starting Autumn 2020

As lockdown measures ease we hope that, come September, we are able to see more of you face to face; however, realistically, "normal" is still a little way off, and for this reason we have taken steps to change the way we support primary schools through network groups by offering ONLINE meetings for 20/21 in (initially) five regions across Southend, Essex & Thurrock.

At each meeting there will be time to talk, to ask questions, help each other and to flag up science & STEM opportunities in your region.  There will also be a short CPD element to the session (1 hour).

The sessions are only £20pp to attend and we are currently offering schools the opportunity to 'subscribe and save' with our discounted subscription package - more information below.
