District Strategy Groups

District Strategy Group meetings are a way for all Heads to meet their fellow school leaders  and to feed into BEP; for their voice to be heard.

The meetings are well attended and a useful way of foster relationships between schools within the same districts. They be attended by the BEP District Leads and District Engagement Coordinator to answer any questions you have. It will be increasingly a place for valuable information about district and city wide opportunities for schools.

These meetings are the perfect opportunity to meet the wider district team and discuss with other Head teachers the needs and priorities of your schools and local areas.
